Samoa Will Travel In Time Without Going 88 MPH

May 9th, 2011

Cue the theme from Back to the Future. Where the nation of Samoa is going, they don’t need roads. From Gizmodo:

On December 29 of this year, Samoans will go to bed as though it were any other day. But they will wake up [dons sunglasses] in the future! Twenty-four hours in the future, to be exact, on December 31, moving it to the other side of the International Date Line and putting the country on the same day schedule as their neighbors to the west.

Let’s just hope the Samoans from December 29 will not see their future selves. That could cause a tear in the space-time continuum!
