Did you know that right now, it's already tomorrow in Hong Kong? And it's 6:33 a.m.?

I had to find out since I have a clock that shows three areas..........and I hadn't set it for a long time...

We have family there.

3. Only!

We flew there, once...

Unbelievably long. After awhile, you just think that this is all that there is in the world...

Just you and the airplane and the droning noise.

12. I was being sarcastic

I have made the trip several time going to Singapore which combined with the connecting flights on this end, total travel time is more than 20 hours.



My butt is still numb from my last trip, I think I will fly business class next time. Though the 3000 bonus the company pay to fly coach is hard to turn down.

5. When you fly from Hong Kong to Chicago...it only takes about 3 hours!

You fly approx. 19 hours in the air and the when you arrive it's the same day, about 3 hours after your departure time.

7. So let me get this straight. People in Hong Kong already know what is going to happen tomorrow

because it is already tomorrow there. Right so far? Theoreticaly then, I could call someone in Hong Kong and get tomorrows lottery numbers and win a lot of money! Why has no one thought of this before?

There has to be something wrong with your analogy.

Damned if I can figure it out, though!
