    Astrange question...

    I looked a Levis post and was thinking. If you where in a plane and kept going round the world. Would you be going forward and back in time and would you age quicker...I am confused. I know the time zones but just cant work it out lol?

    Thanks

    well, if a country has a leap year like we do every 4 years... you might set off during englands leap year, but china might only have 365 days that year or whatever way their calendar works... hmm.

    I think you would be older but have not as old skin if you went on a supersonic jet around the world and kept going.....

    Oh dear. Just think of it that as the light cannot be present in the whole of earth so they need to "apportion" hours of the day to people in certain countries.

    But with fewer days possibly?

    one thing that will happen is you've wasted a day or how ever long it takes you to go round :thumbsup:

    if you awake at 7am in the country and at 7pm you turn your clock back 4 hours you have still lived those 12 hurs

    I cant understand why people dont understand.
    How can you die a day early? You cannot rewind your life nor can you fast forward (time travelling is impossible - I promise) so its IMPOSSIBLE. So in theory...if you wake up in the morning and travel to Australia...you are still as old as you are...

    Not true regardless of your promise (nor are you in any position to make such a claim, no-one is) - while we don't know about travelling backwards we do know how to travel forwards in time although not in a normal airplane. Basically the faster you go, the faster time goes although as it's exponential you need to be going at very high speeds to experience this. As you approach the speed of light, due to the exponential affect the increased time speed increases very quickly. If you took a pair of identical twins, left one on earth at normal speeds and put the other in a rocket which was accelerated to high speed and brought back to earth the twin in the rocket would be older than the one on earth.

    With regards to timezones, they are just a convenient way for us to deal with the earth's rotation and nothing more.

    I lived the same day twice ................ :?

    I once was travelling from New Zealand to Hawaii. I left NZ at around 8pm on - say it was a Tuesday, can't remember now what actual day it was- anyway 8pm I left NZ and was on the plane for around 10 hours. When I arrived in Hawaii it was 6am on that same Tuesday!!! I lived the same day TWICE. It really screwed up my diary entry for that day!!
