о часовых поясах (англ.)

Смешная история. Только по-английски, времени переводить нет, извините :)
I live in Georgia :) So in high school everyone has to pass the Georgia High school Graduation test. We took a week off from classes to review. The school grouped us by alphabetical order instead of by level like normally (College Prep, Tech, LVL1, etc). We had one class period, 90 minutes, dedicated to learning about time zones. Yes a whole 90 minutes. Eventually we get to the part about the international date line, where everyone west of us is behind in time, until you cross it and then its tomorrow. The teacher was trying to make sure everyone got it. One kid is clearly upset. The teacher tries to ask what's wrong.
Student: So man, you tryin to say its tomorrow in Japan.
Teacher: Yes, They are on the other side of the international date line.
Student: Man, what the fuck, man...
Teacher: Is there a problem?
Student (stands up): Hell yea, man, why the FUCK ain't they tell us about 9 /11?
Most of the class agreed.
