After reading several discussions about Fahrenheit vs. Celsius and Metric vs. Imperial vs. English, I got to thinking about what truly global standards there are, i.e. what standards have been adopted by every country/organization?
My nomination is for timekeeping - 60 seconds to a minute, 60 minutes to an hour, and 24 hours to a day. While some folks use different dating methods (AD, Julian, Islam, Chinese, etc.) and the time zones wiggle all over the map, does any country use a different standard for basic timekeeping?
Any other global standards out there?
