Just curious, I thought of a few unique situations and was wondering what age the person would be considered in them.
The person is in LA (3 hours behind NYC) for a temporary vacation and signing a contract for a loan from their local credit union via the internet. The credit union is in NYC and the person was born and resides there. The credit union doesn’t have any reason to suspect that he’s not in NYC.
It’s 2 hours and 15 minutes before the person’s birthday in LA, but he’s been alive for 18 years and 45 minutes (his birthday is a few milliseconds past midnight).
Would the contract be enforceable? Why?
What if the person decides to move to LA and needs a new DL. Would his date of birth be updated? This assumes he askes the clerk at the DMV.
Let’s assume our guy ages 3 years. He goes to a city in Nevada (during winter) to celebrate his 21st birthday. He goes to a bar on the exact line between PST and MST. He’s in PST and the bartender is in MST. He shows his ID (showing original his original EST birthdate) and asks for a drink.
Would it be legal for the bartender to give him a drink? I would think so, as the bartender would think he’s 21.
If he couldn’t get a drink, our guy walks around the bar and stands on the time line, cutting him in half (cut is parallel to his chest).
Would he be able to get a drink now?
Would it just be safer never to do business/drink/etc. on the day before your important milestone birthdays?
