it has come to my attention that of the many wrong things people other than me do, using 12 hour time is one of them

hey guess what SHITBIRD i don't know what you mean when you say "meet you at 7" in a slack message. it is hard for me to figure out what making GBS threads timezone you are in on top of maybe being 12 hours late/early to our meeting

this also means we are gonna have to maybe change :420: to :1620: but that is the cost of progress


also i am not down with swatch internet time just to clear that up

largely agree since it also helps if you take a nap and can't tell what time it is when you wake up: 6:00 / 18h are more easily distinguishable

also i'm generally pro just having one time zone for the planet, it would make scheduling things across time zones so much easier. i hate scheduling meetings.

they should do this but every so often they shift it so a new place gets to have noon with the sun directly overhead to make it fair and give everyone a chance
