Sci Fi Story
A man gets on a bus in Boston at 1:45 and travels for half an hour.
When he gets off the bus it's 1:15.
Some very interesting answers here. Only one winner Stan in N H of the Blogspot Tigers. Congratulations Stan.
Some contestants thought the bus traveled into a different time zone. A half hour bus trip from Boston in any direction will not take you into another time zone.
A few people gave me interesting scenarios about the man falling asleep in the parked bus and sleeping thorough to the next day.
But the answer is very simple. He boarded the bus at 1:45 a.m. on November 1, 2009. During the half hour bus ride Daylight Savings Time ended and when he got off the bus what would have been 2:15 a.m. was now 1:15.
Thank you all.
