I was just thinking, isn't it kinda weird that we have different times for different parts of the world based on the sun? Instead of having 1 AM be the same around the world, we have it split up so it's 1 here, 2 there, and 3 somewhere else. Why don't we just have it so it's a single time around the world, but that time is a different time of day depending on where you are? That's how the months work, right? No matter where you are, it's August right now. It's just that August is in winter in one place, but summer another. I think they should have clock-time work the same, so that 1 AM is nighttime in one place, but daytime on the other side of the world. This way, events like New Years and whatnot would be more significant, because everyone would be celebrating at the same time. Just some random thoughts I had while staring at a clock.

because that would make absolutely no sense otherwise. 1.am would be in the middle of the night in one country, and in broad daylight in another. that's the whole reason we have a clock, to divide the day, and that day division needs to be the same everywhere or else it just gets silly.

time is relative to the sun so that its easy to keep track of days, months are the same throughout because of seasons, which we cant change.

why dont we just throw time out the window entirely?

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

You think santa could do the whole world at midnight? no way. Thats why he broke the earth up into time zones, to break it into manageable chuncks.

+1.

you can't have someone say that it's 12:00 pm when it's nighttime. why is this so difficult for some people to figure out.

Because I'm not wanting to be working at 3am and the sun is shining. It would freak me out and I'd go on a giant penis rampage.

Millitary time still uses time zones. they use Zulu time quite a bit when coordinating large scale, but they also use normal time zones.
