Time is an illusion (Posted on 2002-05-29) Difficulty: 4 of 5
Two people are talking long distance on the phone. One is in an East-Coast state of the US, the other is in a West-Coast state of the US. The first asks the other

"What time is it over there?"

Upon hearing the answer, the person says,

"That's funny. It's the same time here!".

How can this be?
