The reason I haven't been involved in this thread up to now is that I spent
the last week in a place where apparent solar time and official clock time
were about 7800 seconds apart. It was quite curious being near the tropics
and yet at 08:30 the sky was still dark.

Yet the residents seem to cope quite happily without their world coming to
an end.
