To anyone who ever encounters the acronym GMT: the M does NOT stand for meridian, it stands for MEAN. That means GMT is not a synonym for UTC, but a synonym for British time (with daylight saving time). So whoever made up the acronym GMT really is mean. It's safer and less confusing to use time offsets with UTC.

British Summer Time (BST) changes, GMT remains the same as UTC and never includes daylight saving.

1. For a few seconds while struggling to come up with Marion Morrison I tried 'The Duke', hoping I would be thanking you for the bonus. 2. I thought of Bluetooth; why didn't I just enter it!

John Wayne as "the icon of American masculinity" always makes me smile...... Wayne managed to get a deferment out of service in WWII because he was married with 4 children..... then left his wife and kids. Other film stars such as Jimmy Stewart (flying combat missions over Germany) Paul Newman (gunner on torpedo boats) Kirk Douglas (anti-submarine warfare - wounded) Clark Gable (combat missions flown from England) ........... these men should be the true 'Icons', but Wayne made sure he was always the hero in the many 'War Films' he made.

I'm stunned that 50% of people know what the white in the Indian flag stands for. Is it common knowledge to know what the colors in a flag stand for? Or was it just a lot of lucky guesses for "peace"?

White=Peace. Had it been something else, I'd have not gotten it either.
