I mean it's pretty unfair on the Pacific dwellers coz everybody else will get up to 12 hours more living to do. Will like the world end sequentially based on time zones? Like every time 21/12 dawns that piece will end or will it end second by second?
These questions have been plaguing me for some time now and I'm wondering if anybody will be able to answer them before tommorow. I'm GMT+2 so any answers will have to take the time difference into account.
PS Obviously I am not expecting answers from Fiji, Tonga, New Zealand, Tuvalu or Anadyr right now, unless, of course, they have daylight savings in effect.
Hmm, this a good point you bring up.
So by that logic, as each part of the world changes to December 21st, 2012, one could fly (airplane?) to the next timezone right before it does, where it is still December 20th, 2012. Each hour, fly to the next timezone, escaping the end!
When one returns to where one started, or before making it all the way around, successfully escaping the end of the world, it would be December 22nd, 2012.
Or maybe one would have to travel at light speed...
Well, I better start working on this now...
