Daylight Savings kicks in this Sunday for those of us in Victoria, SA, Tassie and the ACT. It's a month earlier than normal for us Victorians.
I have three things to say.
1. I reckon it's too early. It's still a bit cold. The extra hour of sunlight after work doesn't really mean much because we're not likely to be sitting on our back patios with a mojito anyway.
2. Why is it plural? Shouldn't it be Daylight Saving? Because there's only one saving per day. Or are they suggesting because it's multiple days, it's more than one saving? No, I think it's just one saving. Further, it's not really saved at all because we lose an hour of it in the morning. It's not 'shifting' either because the rotation of the Earth is a constant (despite what the Adventists tell us). I think it should be called (in the singular) Clock Changing.
3. Queensland, who refuse to accept Clock Changing, need to man the fuck up. Seriously, it's the stupidity, not the heat. Queensland's stupid stupidity fucks us all up. It makes radio announcements take too long ("...and that can be heard at 7pm tonight on the ABC, 6pm in Queensland, 4pm in Perth etc etc") and in a work sense, it stuffs up phone call times and it just fucking shits me. Put your clocks forward like the rest of us you Bjelke-Petersen and Hanson-voting redneck cunts! And while you're at it, here... take Powderfinger back. We don't want them.
