I can look at my clock, see it's 9:20am in New York, and feel safe calling them or setting up a transatlantic meeting at that time..... Now, roll everyone onto the same clock, and I'll have no idea! I'd have to remember lots of stupid times or do some mental gymnastics to understand that calling at 22pm is a bad idea as that's lunch time in Singapore.

Want to fix something, make it a global standard when the clocks move for daylight savings... that really confuses things so meetings which don't normally collide between the USA and Europe, suddenly hit but only for one or two weeks until the other side moves into daylight savings.

The reason that every major university maintains a department of mathematics is that it's cheaper than institutionalizing all those people.
