Global dates and times

The third example is wrong, it should be "8592-01-01T00:00+02:09":

    Midnight UTC on the 1st of January, 8592. The time zone associated with that time is two hours and nine minutes ahead of UTC, which is not currently a real time zone, but is nonetheless allowed.
Comment 1 Tab Atkins Jr. 2011-03-31 19:04:18 UTC
No, it's correct.  The time is midnight UTC, which is the same as 1am at +1, 3pm at -9, and 2:09am at +2:09.
