    Like Nepal which is off by 5 hr 45 minutes from GMT!
    Or in the USA where you can drive on a lonely road north out of
    Winnemucca Nevada in Pacific time (UTC-8), into Oregon where you go
    into Mountain Time (UTC-7), and then back into Pacific Time, but in
    the hundred miles of Oregon where you drive in and out of these time
    zones, there is not a single city, structure, or civil entity other
    than sagebrush!  Time zones are for people, and yet there are no
    people!  Other than the lone highway there is not a single man made
    object visible for hours.  No dirt roads.  No fences.  No telephone
    poles.  No power lines.  Nothing, except for sagebrush.
    Check the map to see this bizarre deviation and then drive these
    lonely roads and scratch your head wondering why such a diversion in
    the time zone line could ever have been made...
    The longer I live the more I want there to be no DST, and I am sure
    time zones will be next on my list of things to get rid of! ;-)
