If I travelled west constantly, across the time zones, would I be able to go back in time?

Conversely, if I did the same going east, would I be able to go into the future?

No. I heard you can time travel if you drink bleach though.

No. The sun would just remain in the same place in the sky (assuming you were traveling fast enough). Time would flow as normal.

Yes, time travel can be achieved by changing your time zone.

theoretically yes (i think)

pratically, no, of course not.

what the hell? No? Youll be advancing according to the suns' pattern of orbit, not by TIME.
#12
Erm.
Time as we measure it would change, but time would flow normally.

Neither, much as you'd obviously like to think so.

So if I started in London (+0:00) and flew to Los Angeles (-8:00/+16:00) I'd be eight hours behind the time in London....

time light takes to reach a place =/= time travel.

theoretically if a method for viewing the world around perfectly was accesible, you'ld see what happened earlier because light was reflected/refracted through said method.

an example of this is the hubble field. the HST had to be exposed to tha same area for the light of the stars further away to be seen.


EDIT: time zones =/= time. time ones are for the amount of time the sun's upon that area. -- to divide night and day.

They way I see it, time travel is not possible. The only way to "time travel" would be to alter all the matter in the universe to replicate how it was at one specific point in time.

Which is near impossible.

Also, the obligatory is due.

Yeah, but things that happen in a place to the East wouldn't have happened yet...I think...?

But time doesn't flow backwards. You can't stop time, nor make it flow backwards.

Besides, what would be the point saying "I TRAVELLED THRU TIME LOLOLOLOL!!!"? You'd probably be too busy suffering from jetlag.

well if you travelled over each time zone over the course of an hour then what would happen is you would be stuck in the same time all the time, but the day would change. e.g.

2 a.m. monday the 5th-->2.a.m tuesday the 6th --> 2 a.m. Wednesday the 7th etc... that would be your life forever

ok think about this, when you get BACK to london you'll see that the only time that's past is the time you wasted going around the world

Okay, look:

Time zones are not actually time; they are how we label time, based on the sun. You could be in China, and it would be 9:50 A.M. instead of P.M. like it would be here, but that's just how we label it; time still consistently flows. We're talking to you, aren't we? We're not all from the same time zone. Does that mean we're from the future? (I hope you can answer that yourself)

lol ok well..the only time travel you can do is within 25 hours, no more no less. so if you're in the +12 zone you can't go to +13, and if you're in the -12 you can't go to -13. you can move anywhere between +12 and -12 (keep in mine there is a 0 zone). so the MAXIMUM difference you can change is 24 hours. understand? remember the day changes for all time zones...its not like australia stays in september 5 while everyone else keeps going...

so the MOST you can 'time' travel is 24 hours. and also this is just time zones, you're not actually traveling through time.

in terms of going west to go back in time, thats not how time works.

if you want to go east, you will go forward in time. hell, if you go pretty much anywhere you'll go forward in time.

I have no opinion on this matter.

the only way to successfully go back in time is to mix gasoline with milk and drink it
it opens a space-time vortex and sends you to the future
go ahead, try it, some kid at my school did it and he never came back...
