An am-I-alone-here-question: What does the calendar that you picture in your head look like?

I can account for 91 titles. Were there more than 91 titles published?

Travelling across a time zone by air is ambiguous. It's hard to tell exactly when it happens. When travelling across time zones by air, when does the time change? Especially across multiple zones.
