I think I'd have to go with those using the clocks of the nearest Muslim country. I doubt I could survive on that type of starvation schedule.

Haven't Moslems or conservative Jews ever heard of the concept of the 'spirit of the law'?

Isn't that what the "nearest Muslim country" compromise is doing, observing the spirit of the law rather than rigidly conforming to the local schedule?

Pity the poor observant Muslim on an Arctic expedition. That would require true dedication to the faith. At the Antarctic, though, endless smorgasbord!

It's a wonder they all don't vacation in Capetown.
