Why don't we have 1 global established time?

Really don’t see the need to adjust all our clocks all the time depending on where we are/what we’re doing just so we can all say we wake up in the morning. I mean, who cares? 1 time please.

We could call it Ruffers Mean Time (willing to take suggestions though)

I think it’s important for the time to reflect what time it is in the place that someone is wondering what the time is

If anything we should have the opposite - millions of tiny time zones. You should have to change your watch by a few minutes just going to the shops.

That’s relative though

If you go to WHSmiths, you put your watch back 15 years.

Relative to where the sun is in that place

Nah, no reason why morning has to be whenever the sun comes up. Some people sleep in anyway.

I think it’s important that noon is always when the sun is at the highest point that it can be in or whatever

Why

I liked it when Samoa binned off an entire day for trade reasons.

Because when people say “I’ll see you at high noon” you don’t need a watch to ensure you get there on time

Loads of people would have lost a birthday there.

multiple reasons, ruffers. but maybe…none!

Probably because everyone would get upset about where to standardise it to.

But it’s actually pretty obvious since time was discovered in Greenwich.

Also Britain is slap bang in the middle of the world.
