Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

            I read some information that I find astonishingly hard to believe which I want to gather some objective thoughts on.   Basically, I read that all 24 time zones exist at the same time at the geographic point of the South Pole.  That said, it is the only place on Earth that a person can time travel by simply stepping back into yesterday from today and back into tomorrow.   This is explained by all lines of longitude converge at the exact point at the geographic location of the South Pole.  

            In closing, I do not even pretend to understand what I have just posted.  Hopefully, whoever reads this, will be able to offer translation that I can understand and make sense out of regarding this post.  

            Thanks in advance for any simplified versions which can be offered here.  

            George
