Not even space mountain at disney? 

Eh... The Mako's taller. But the highest natural point in Florida is 354 feet. Our tallest building is the Panorama Tower. But we're the flattest state.

There are no mountains in Florida. But we can drill pretty deep.

I don't think Mssr. Verne knew that.

Of course, in modern days central Florida sports several peaks such as Mt. Splash, Mt. Space, and Mt. Big Thunder.

You could argue that presenting the info in 7 time zones is not necessary; that one (UTC) is good enough, since it is used worldwide as a standard to avoid confusion.

Yeah, aviation generally calls out times in UTC (although called something else) anyway, right? Zulu time, was it?

Fun Fact: According to Wikipedia there were only 47 SSMEs build in total, one of those never flew.
