Being USA-centric, the thought hit me that the names of US time zones seem very North America centric, at best. For example, “Mountain Time” seems very USA-specific, maybe US-Canada specific. What says Mexico at the same longitude as Denver, CO? Or, South American places at the same longitude as Denver?
Does the entire world recognize the same time zones? Are the names standardized across all countries? Or, if not the entire world, how about all those countries in the modern world ruled by timetables, schedules, and commerce?
What’s the SD on this?
