Something unusual about standard time

Canada and the US have 4 common time zones and 2 uncommon ones. In Canada’s eastern provinces, broadcasters tell listeners to stay tuned for news at 6:00 pm Atlantic/6:30 pm Newfoundland.

China standardizes on a single time zone, UTC/GMT +8:00 hours, while geographically, it covers 5 zones.

Kathmandu is +5:45 hours ahead (UTC+05:45)

The funny thing about Coordinated Universal Time is that when you include all the offsets like Newfoundland Time, the zones total more than 24.
