I always thought timezones are unnecessary in a globally connected world and are more like a waste of time and energy, it would be amazing to just have a global timezone so you don't need to think about that.

Remove the AM/PM and use 24 hours clock and is even greater, AM/PM are tied to the concept of noon, if that is removed and we all use a clock not tied to the moment of the day you are, you wake up at the 15:00 hours and go to bed at 7:00 so you sleep 8 hours.
