But what about the curtains fading?

By Ari - 22 August 2006 18

It looks like the ACT will be part of a unified daylight savings regime for SE-Australia.

And the plan is for it to run for six months – early October to April.

Sounds good to me.

What’s Your opinion?

Daylight saving makes me want to stab myself in the eye.

Whoa, it echos in here!

Why don’t we just hook up some big-arse boats and tow the whole country about a thousand kilometres due east, then we would be in an earlier time zone, and wouldn’t have to change the clocks at all, while still having all the benefits of daylight savings.

Nah, too close to smelly Kiwis.

but it is equally as hard batting against pedestrian bowlers as well in that light… you wanna smack them around and the light just screws you over…. and it can make you look quite the fool!!!

Thumper 3:50 pm 22 Aug 06

Yeah, nothing worse than turning up to cricket training with about 35 minutes of light. And then getting a bat against first/ second grade quickies in seriously fading light!

You can do that at the Cube any day of the year.

I’d rather it started first Sunday in September. Then Thumper & I could get some meaningful ball-tampering training in, after work.

Surprise, surprise, the Nationals are against it.

Doesn’t daylight saving increase global warming

I must ask Al when he arrives in his jet

Still, won’t make life any easier for the poor buggers who live on the QLD/NSW border and have to travel back and forth each day.

Thumper 2:12 pm 22 Aug 06

ANd the milk will go off quicker….

Mr Evil 1:49 pm 22 Aug 06

Oh my God; won’t the sky fall in if they do that?

Anyway, isn’t Stanhope all against uniform laws?

Thumper 1:26 pm 22 Aug 06

About bloody time!
