Why should it be GMT and not the timezone that the the Mayan Peninsula is in, which happens to be CST for us.
I've wondered that myself.
But for some reason (probably because of the British Empire) we use GMT as the calibration point.
Posssibly it has some occult druidic significance.. with the leylines in that area.. all the megaliths etc... just speculating..
Boats and trains apparently....... Greenwich Mean Time
That plus Britain is the centre of the known universe
All the flyguys and military in general are calling it Zulu, because
it's easier. Same Prime Meridian, but UK's is cooler by leagues!
Besides, was that not the home of the first Royal Observatory?
ZAaap me if I'm wrong, an old guy now..
Strictly to topic:
A young charge some 15 years ago during a long visit, one Erika S.
and the baby of Susan's three... :
"And if I die before I wake,
I shouldn't be a bit surprised."
What a bedtime prayer ender. Probably the only 8 year old version
of Kate Hepburn ever. Should have seen the dry smile. Priceless
little genius wherever you are now, be safe.
And strap into bed tomorrow, better than head bangin'.
