Scurvey Crew and I are going to watch the rag and stick people go round that lump of chalk tomorrow. With a late night like this, I don't suppose you'll be joining us?

I am retired, so it is my MFT ( my fnnn time) Loosely based on GMT -7, depending on how bad my hangover is. Go stuff all the rest [including the Brussels idiots] of the jerks that want their own stupid time. Bilges are next.

Quite right: CET = UCT+1.

Apart from in the summer, when CEST (Central European Summer Time) is UCT+2.

There is also:

UT (Universal Time)

A system of time measurement which conforms to the mean motion of the Sun, and which forms the basis for "civil" timekeeping. UT is defined by a mathematical formula which related it to sidereal time; ie UT is determined from measurements of the positions of the stars as the Earth rotates.

Sidereal day

The period of the Earth's rotation relative to the stars, ie the interval between two successive transits of the same star. Equal to approximately 23h 56m 4s.

Sidereal time

A measurement of time defined by the apparent motion of the stars as the earth rotates. The sidereal time is zero when the equinox crosses the observer's meridian. An object is on the observer's meridian (ie due south or due north) when the local sidereal time is equal to the object's right ascension.

There's Hammer Time, but that was only used in the 80's for a very short while.
