Just use ET/CT/PT and save yourself the trouble. Zero upside to using it correctly (best case, you’re correct and sound like a douche)

Let’s also adopt the 24 hour system. A day has 24 hours. 12 > 5, but 12 pm < 5 pm; 12:01 am, not 0:01, is the first minute of the day. 🙄 The only reason to stick with this illogical system is to mess up with the Martians when they have conquered and rule the US.

Joking aside, I just use ET whenever I have to specify which timezones, makes it so much easier!
