Clocks go back this weekend

By johnboy - 5 April 2013 9

Spring forward, fall back.

It’s pretty simple and it’s this Sunday.

If in doubt listen to your mobile phone which probably knows what to do better than you do.

Or just wait six months and your clock will come right again.

What’s Your opinion?

Hooray. Means the footy season has well and truly started, and out comes the book on how to change the car clock.
But i do wonder about it. Our cousins in Qld don’t worry about it, nor the NT, or West Aussie.

Queenslanders are idiots – my friends in Brisbane spend half of summer complaining about being up before 5am.

Darwin is so far North they don’t need it – makes less difference closer to the equator.

And WA have trialled it several times and decided no…

Yeah, I cant belive it, the sun is down but its still so bloody hot. They could spend more time enjoying “gods country” in the afternoon if they had it.

Think about it, and then weep for the future.

Facepalm.

Lame.

Riding home from work in the dark is lame.

How does this change make that happen?

Possibly because instead of the sun setting at 6:49pm on Monday, it will be setting at 5:49pm.

Unless you were being sarcastic…

Clearly the author decided to flip a coin rather than taxing their brain with the mental arithmetic.
