Our neighbors to the East...???

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Our neighbors to the East...???

Post by sigmoid » Thu Jun 05, 2014 1:22 am

"Thailand News and Discussion
Our neighbors to the East..."

I don't mean to be a bringdown/bummer/buzzkill/wet blanket but:

What 's up with this? Am I missing something?

Did everybody move to Burma or something? :pardon:

It's been a long and stressful few weeks... something like this was bound to happen.

I once convinced my ambulance partner's daughter that if you travel back through the time zones, you get younger. Hilarious, but more so when she presented that as 'news' at school the next day. She was pretty uptight with me after that, but being the good guy that I am I explained that it only works while you're flying, not if you're going from country to country. After she'd been to school and shared this update, she never really fully trusted me again.

Actually I believe it does work if you're travelling at the speed of light, but I don't believe timezone direction matters. Though I think it would be affected by the direction the earth spins in.

I've always wondered how much affect the direction of the Earth spinning has on Flight Duration, I'd assume in one direction must be faster than the reverse direction since the Earth is catching up to you... but how big of an affect does it have?

The Jet Stream has a great effect if you're flying.
