I was thinking...

What if you hopped on a plane going just over Mach 1, headed due West, and flew for a couple days, or weeks? I, of course, would propose bringing an SR-71 Blackbird out of retirement for the task, but any in-air-refueling, Mach-capable plane would do the trick. The effect of this would be that it would always be the same time. If you took off at 10:53 am, it would always be 10:53 am, wherever you were, forever. 10:53 am on Tuesday for 24 hours, and then you'd fly over some arbitrary point in the Pacific opposite Great Britain, and it'd be 10:53 am on Wednesday for the next 24 hours. And so on. It would probably mess with your head a lot. And when would you sleep? 10:53 am? Obviously, but for how long? It's just something that popped into my head, and was too long for a status. All of my notes aren't deep and profound, I promise.
