There are a few generically named time zones, like CST (central standard
time), etc., that are used by more than one or two countries.  Some also
get known by two names, e.g. EST or AEST, where the A prefix is meant to
mean Australia.  But it's still ripe for problems.

I remember the fun of trying to work out when to watch a space launch,
when the NASA website mentions a time, but failed to mention what
timezone.  You'd think, they of all people, would know they get
international on-lookers, and specify one, or advertise using GMT.
