No matter how many times it is explained to me, I never got the theory of relativity, and like gravity, I like time to be set in stone, as it were; unfailingly regular and unchanging.
In looking when I should close the Unnamed Challenge, I was looking up different time zones of the world. Nukualofa, Tonga is the same as New Zealand, (at least in the summer - not sure if they have daylight savings,) whereas Apia, Samoa and Pago Pago, American Samoa is exactly 24 hours behind us.
As a kid, I used to be fascinated by the concept of international dateline; I still am. We've even stayed at Nukualofa's International Dateline Hotel once; wasn't as romantic as the name suggests, but it seems they've put in a lot of work since 1998.
Anyway, I learned we have nearly 30 hours before everybody is finished with February 28, 2010. I'm sorry it's going to be one of those dates some people won't forget for a long, long time.
