The earth isn't flat. It's very hard to display a "sphere" as a flat, usually continuous image. So although on a flat map it seems like it's skewed, the sun hits most of the places the same color at relatively the same time, thus giving them the same time zone.


If you want to find out more about that, the educational youtube channel Vsauce made a video about it last week.



**** yeah science.

The government of China found it more practical for everyone on the country to be at the same time for the convenience of everyone in China.

Doesn't make much sense on a geographic standpoint, but considering how China is I'm not surprised.

It's because Mao made them do that so that all of China would wake up and go to sleep at the same time, or some other stupid thing.

He was a really stupid leader.

Anyone else bothered by the fact that they're not all straight lines? I mean seriously, if you're gonna go to the trouble of arbitrarily dividing the planet into different zones to offset time, you might as well be consistent about it. Like what the ****, world?

World governments picking and choosing their own time zone (because **** logic and linearly). Same way with daylight savings time (Some countries and even US states opt out of it, effectively causing a *********** if you travel a lot for work in the US).

I assume that the lines were drawn that way so that already established regions (like provinces or states if not countries) can have the same time to make them easier to govern. If they just drew straight lines it could go badly. What it one passed through a city for example? Can you imagine trying to run a city divided by timezones?

Well I suppose that makes sense, to offset it by a few miles. But it's way more than that, especially with the international date line. I mean so what if there's a time zone line in eastern Russia? The country probably spans like 8 time zones anyways
