Why don't we have 1 global established time?


#1

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.


#2

Is this a cat_race thread?


#3

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


#4

Uh…


#5

it’s called utc and it’s fucking annoying


#6

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


#7

Alright, Wyclef


#8

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.


#9

That’s relative though


#10

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


#11

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!


#12

Relative to where the sun is in that place


#13

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


#14

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


#15

Why


#16

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


#17

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


#18

Loads of people would have lost a birthday there.


#19

multiple reasons, ruffers. but maybe…none!


#20

to exploit workers
