    Giant Mecca clock seeks to call time on Greenwich

    For more than a century, a point on the top of a hill in south-east London has been recognised as the centre of world time and the official starting point of each new day.

    But now the supremacy of Greenwich Mean Time is being challenged by a gargantuan new clock being built in Mecca, by which the world’s 1.5 billion Muslims could soon be setting their watches.

    you know that **** Church follows it's own time yes?

    To this day the bell in the tower, Great Tom, is rung 101 times at 9 p.m. … To this day the bell in the tower, Great Tom, is rung 101 times at 9 p.m. Oxford time (9:05 p.m. GMT/BST) every night for the 100 original scholars of the college (plus one added in 1664). In former times this signalled the close of all college gates throughout Oxford. Although the clock itself now shows GMT/BST, **** Church still follows Oxford time in the timings of services in the cathedral.
