Time Measurement Should be Scientific. Instead, it’s a Global Hodge-Podge.
“What time is it?” may turn out to be more of a trick question than one might think.
For quite a while, the world, for the most part, had a pretty good approach towards time. Ground Zero for time keeping was set up at Greenwich, England. Twenty-four one-hour time bands spread out from there around the world. These matched the 24-hour cycle in the dance between the Earth and the Sun.
Simple, right? But of course, we could not leave well enough alone.
