T-Rex: T-Rex's tips for getting over
T-Rex: 1. Don't travel.
T-Rex: 2. Sleep according to your home time zone the whole time you are away.
T-Rex: 3. Drink. Lots and lots of alcohol.
T-Rex: 4. Jump off a bridge.
Utahraptor: That took a dark turn.
T-Rex: Yeah, it's this stupid time zone. I am so not coping.
Utahraptor: That's not a good ad for your tips.
Caption: LATER:

The author writes:

I once found a website that claimed that jetlag doesn't exist. That it's a fake thing that someone just made up, and it doesn't actually happen to anyone, and that anyone who feels bad or sleepy after a long flight, or who can't sleep at 2am, simply didn't drink enough water.

I expected at some point that it would talk about time zones being a lie and each day having four corners.
