now this one was good!!!!

Not good and not correct, how you can post some of the comments you do about my teasers in editing,and yet put inaccurate teasers on the site yourself is beyond me

I know you have tried to send me a private message, but I cannot open it, and for clarification as to why this teaser is wrong. There are 37 World Time Zones

The surface of the earth is divided into 24 time zones, each of 15 degrees longitude or one hour of time. I am not referiing to individual deviations from Grenwich Mean Time just the subdivision of World Time. - This came from an encyclopedia.

But, surely each sub-division of time , is in itself, by definition a time zone.

Also not all of the divisions run along a 15 degree line, or anywhere near one.

I know that the common conception is that there are 24 time zones, but this is wrong and you are only adding to this misconception

Phil is right there are 37 time zones.

Why are there 24 hours in one day?

Something to do with the time taken fo the Earth to complete one revolution !! (( Give or take the odd minute ) or 6 hours a year to be precise )

Yes and as world time is measured as + or - GMT the maximum number of divisions is 24...I'm getting tired of debating this with you. Take this up with Castelli (Diaries) Ltd from where this information came from.

It makes a lot more sense now I know that you are a Spurs fan. Every 90 minutes seems like a lifetime LOL

Very funny

I hope you don't get the points for the correction, as this would be a travesty to me

I'm touched that this is still being watched ;) How are you Phil?

Good season for Liverpool this year. World Cup here we come!
