    Re: A question about an Alan Jackson song

    Great song for a cynical old Brit more into old British Rock than Country. 
    The downside is it's always 9am-5pm somewhere and I've often been working at 
    midnight videoconferencing Canberra or  Chicago talking to wide awake and 
    fresh people! 
    The other potential downside is the sun is always below the yard arm on some 
    Royal Naval Ship somewhere, (or at least was during Empire era), so there was 
    always a drunken British sailor somewhere. (Nowadays more likely a tourist 
    "larger lout"). 
    The only answer is for the whole world to use GMT as the only time zone. as we 
    superior people  do in Navlist.  (Ok, UTC if you insist)
    Most of you will have to drive around and work in the dark. But I'll be alright jack.
    Sleep well.

    Good point, but that would be one really bad clock.  Besides that, it would 
    spoil the value of the exercise!
