Issue #10036 has been reported by Grey Baker.

----------------------------------------
Bug #10036: Time.parse raises NoMethodError: undefined method `<' for nil:NilClass when called with out of range arguments and a negative offset
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/10036

* Author: Grey Baker
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Category: lib
* Target version: current: 2.2.0
* ruby -v: ruby 2.1.2p95 (2014-05-08 revision 45877) [x86_64-darwin13.0]
* Backport: 2.0.0: UNKNOWN, 2.1: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
To replicate:

require 'time'
Time.parse("2014-13-13T18:00:00-0900") # => NoMethodError: undefined method `<' for nil:NilClass

This should instead return "ArgumentError: argument out of range", like it does with a positive offset:

Time.parse("2014-13-13T18:00:00+0900") # => ArgumentError: argument out of range

Fix is a one-liner on GitHub: https://github.com/ruby/ruby/pull/667
