“I’m traveling to Greenwich tomorrow. I’m not sure what to do in the Mean Time”

There have been several puns about Greenwich Mean Time. “Ok, so you go to the market in Greenwich then watch meteors in the park. What do you do in the MeanTime” was posted on Twitter on August 11, 2009. “I’m thinking of going to Greenwich this summer, but I have to think of something to do in the meantime” was posted on Twitter on January 24, 2010. “I’m heading to Greenwich later today. Wondering what I should do in the Mean Time?” was posted on Twitter by sickipediabot on February 17, 2014.

Wikipedia: Greenwich Mean Time
Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) is the mean solar time at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, London. GMT was formerly used as the international civil time standard, now superseded in that function by Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). Today GMT is considered equivalent to UTC for UK civil purposes (but this is not formalised) and for navigation is considered equivalent to UT1 (the modern form of mean solar time at 0° longitude); these two meanings can differ by up to 0.9 s. Consequently, the term GMT should not be used for precise purposes.

Where I live, it is four hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time; If I sit very, very still for exactly four hours, I will be in Greenwich. What will I do in the Mean Time? (self.shittyaskscience)
