talk about worthwihle things to get upset about----i hate this time zone bit...... WHO DECIDED EAST COAST TIME ZONE WAS DIFFERENT THAn mountain or paciffic? and why?
they( news) say every mnorning it is 5am in the east,,,,-- well it is 5am in the west too-- but we chose to call it by a different number JUST BECAUSE TEH SUN HAS NOT GOT THERE YET??? .-----data/tickets/news wise it would be so much easier if new yorkers enjopyed sunrise at 6:30 am just after teh sun came up and ate breakfast at 8:00am while people in calif would set their alarms for sunrise at 9:30 and have breakfast at 11:00am
when i was in scotland ( the land of some really independent thinkers) some individual places refused to acknowledge daylight saving- and called it "daft" time--- which led the outer isles to have 2 hours change in daylight which they then called DOUBLE DAFT TIME. now try and figurE out how AND WHEN YOU CAN GET ON THE 11:00 BUS TO EDINBURGH?
THE SCOTS WERE USED TO THIS- AND TOOK IT AS NORMAL.. I HEAR .. BY NOW....SOME LESS CREATIVE SOULS HAV TRIED TO BEAT DOWN THIS CREATIVE TIME TELLING PROBLEM. I REMEMBER SOMEONE SAYING TO ME "I DON'T CARE WHAT TIME IT IS IN LONDON.... IT IS 3:30 HERE..."
COURSE TEH BRITISH HAD A MORE WORLDLY VIEW AND PRODUCED GREENWICH TIME???? JUST IMAGING A WORLD WHICH SIMPLY USED THAT TIME- AND ALL CLOCKS WERE SET TO IT. YOU GOT UPAND ATE BREAKFAST AT WHATEVER TIME SEEMED LOGICAL BECAUSE OF WHERE THE SUN WAS LOCATED.... WHEN THE SUN I STRIAGHT UP, IT IS LUNCHTIME
I LOOKED IT UP----Greenwich Mean Time or GMT is clock time at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, London. It is the same all year round and is not affected by Summer Time (Daylight Saving Time) clock changes.
Every 15° longitude represents one hour's difference in time: (24 x 15 = 360, the degrees of a circle). You can work out the time at every location on earth if you know how many degrees it is east or west of Greenwich.
WELL THAT CERTAINLY MAKE THE TELLING OF TIME MUCH EASIER .. DOESN'T IT????
PERSONALLY -- IF WE WERE ALL ON GREENWICH TIME AND OUR TUMMIES TOLD US WHEN TO HAVE BREAKFAST IT WOULD MAKE AIR TRAVEL AND TICKETING SOOOOO MUCH EASIER.
AND THEN THERE IS---- WE HAVE 5 FINGERS ON EACH HAND SO ALL OUR CALCULATIONS ARE IN A DECIMAL SYSTEM BASED ON 10... BUT THEN.. TEH GOOD OLE BRITISH GOT INVOLVED....
TEH BRITISH ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALOT OF PROBLEMS- I FIGURE-- IN IT' S HISTORY, THERE WAS SOME SECRETARY OF THE INTERIOR WHO HAD 6 FINGERS ON EACH HAND... WHICH FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS....GOT THEM GOING ON 12 PENNIES TO A SHILLING AND , 12 INCHES TO A FOOT..
THAT CONCEPT ALONE SCREWS UP EVEN MY TOOL SHED WITH ALL THE METRIC WRENCHES.
SO WE NOW TRY AND TEACH KIDS OTHER BASED NUMBER SYSTEMS-- WHICH IN OTEHR TERMS WE ALREADY KNEW
A HORSE IS 16.2 WHICH IS 16 HANDS 2 INCHES-- WHERE THE UNIT HANDS IS 4 INCHES...AND THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS 16.5 -- THE 5 JUST DOES NOT EXIST IN A 4 BASED SYSTEM/
I REALLY MEANT TO DISCUSS SCREAMING- WHY DO WE NOT TEACH OUR FEMALE CHILDREN ---IF ANY ADVANCE TO YOU IS NOT WHAT YOU LIKE... JUST "BITE BACK" AND SCREAM-- TEH DD ABOUT BEING SEEN AS VULNERABLE AND THERFORE SUBJECT TO UNWANTED ATTENTION-- WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH JUST SCREAMING AT THE TIME. SKIP THE L;AWYER CRAP-- LET OUT A BELLOW- WHICH WOULD PUT THE ATTENTION ON THE PROBLEM WITHOUT HAVING A LAWYER INVOLED.
FEMALE DOGS HAVE IT RIGHT---- IF THEY DO NOT LIKE THE ADVANCE OF TEH MALE-- THEY HAVE TEETH-- USE THEM AT THE TIME AND PLACE OF THE PROBLEM --THEY SIMPLY BITE TEHM- ANY MALE WITH ANY SENSE KNOWS ABOUT THOSE TEETH AND BEHAVES ACORDINGLY WITH "NOW?" AND THEN " ?REALLY? NOW?"
JUST ANOTHER CASE OF TEH SENSABLE SOLUTION BEING IGNOED BY TEH LEGAL SYSTEM- JUST IMAGINE WHAT SCREAMING WOULD HAVE DONE TO THE CONTENT OF OUR SUPREME COURT THRU THE YEARS.
BACK TO DAY CARE CENTERS.... THEY ARE SCREAMING.. SILENTLY
