Unless something has changed over the years, you adjust your date at the INTERNATIONAL DATE LINE, not at Greenwich .

So whoever is closest to 180.00.00 or actually just a tad bit west is the winner.

Grand prize is dree membership ti CF. lol

This is not a good thing. Being closer to the west side of the international dateline means you age sooner.

too bad you can't cross over, find out the winning lottery numbers, then cross back over with the winning numbers.
