When I arrive in O'Hara, I'm already reprogrammed and the biological clock has been reset. I never have jet lag. Been doing that for almost 30 years and it still works. No drugs, no alcohol (well, not normally, but occasionally a couple in HK or Narita). Works good for me. :)
So my flight's at 11.50 pm. on a Wednesday. I'm supposed to stay awake 24 hours so that takes me back to 11.50 pm Tuesday. At THAT hour of the day on Tuesday I will have already been awake for 16 hours cos I will have been at work. This gives me a grand total of 40 hours awake (or insane whichever way one looks at it.) Farmboy, I'm confuzzed. Your idea would only work if you had a morning flight yeah?
