The world will end at midnight...

half past midnight in Newfoundland.

Strange. I'd known for years, decades even, that Newfoundland had the strangest time zone around: half an hour offset from anywhere else in the world. Or so I thought. Then reading today's news, I discovered that they are but a tiny
exception! Iran, a huge country by comparison to the tiny province, is also offset from almost everyone else by a similar amount.

So now I assume that there must be lots of other places offset by half an hour. Surely there can't be just two!

How did I never know about this?
Yours, clearly a half hour out of sync,
