Getting confused, actually. What kind of messed-up calendar is only 364 days long?

I think Skysaw is in PST; at any rate he's no further east than I am, so he's still missing a day.

Nope, he lives in EST.

Ah, I couldn't remember if that was it or not. Well anyway, that puts him in my time zone, which means he's inexplicably jumped a day ahead of the rest of the world. That also means he missed all the good sales, and those horrendous lines of traffic.

Christmas eve is christmasy enough, especially since we usually open one small present then.

- or -

I don't see the big deal in rounding to the nearest 363 days.

I wouldn't be very good at calculating time zones, seeing as how I've never been outside of EST...

This would make a good topic to keep arguing over until next holiday season. I can't wait! Also, the stock thing wouldn't work, as time zones do not provide time travel. As far as we know, there is no way to travel through time, only distort it (by going very, very fast, or traveling near a black hole).

Damn annoying time zones... you have no idea how long it takes me to work out just one "simple" timezone calculation... arrgh. :-(

That's where the BST clock in the bottom-left corner comes in real handy. I must now go and worship Dantom for their inclusion of that feature on their website. :-)
