I'm pretty sure not everybody in the world does Daylight Savings.

This teaser would only work for countries that change their clocks twice a year.

It's a good teaser for Americans.

Of course if you're Australian, you'll know that standard time zones are GMT +10, GMT +10.5, and GMT +12, going east to west, so this wouldn't work.

there's a reason why it states major time zones. there are many time zones that fall in between the major time zones by sifferent amounts of time. and there are a of areas that follow daylight saving, but change at different days of the year.

You said we would cross the time zone...
assume we are either walking, driving, or in a plane...
You normally wouldnt have a clock with you to change. (but maybe a watch)

if that was the answer, it could have been a question in the 'trick' category
