God bless self aware clocks :)

 

On the flip side, who wants to get an hour's LESS sleep?

I wish they would stop with daylight savings time, now that farming isn't the largest industry I do not think it is needed anymore and plenty of places do without it.

Or retarded self aware clocks that instead of reversing 1 hour it goes around 23 times.

We used to have a clock in an office I worked at that only moved forward 11 times automatically, so the date went forward at midday in the summer :p

It's not just to do with that any more.

Scotland are looking at having their own time zone, which I find queer because time zones go east to west, not north to south or whatever....

 

But then I enjoy putting the clocks forward and back.

 

What I DO take offence to is the UK wanting to move our time zone forward permanently.  Surely we are the centre of time, being GMT and all that.  It just wouldn't make sense?
