How about 4 people meeting at the South Pole.
Coming from 0, 90, 180 and 270 degrees longitude.
Their watches wont agree.
Sop what time is it when they meet ???

It is that simple. Most of the research teams working at the South Pole follow
the time zone of their home country or the closest point in the inhabited world.
Since all time zones converge at the pole, the four people meeting would have to
agree on one time zone (in the spirit of science and fellowship).
