A quick blog

Mutterings continued.

as this was too good not to share......

From the "Just when you thought things couldn't get any sillier" files, comes this:

"AFTER 30 years of "daylight saving" - moving the clocks forward in the spring and then back again in the autumn - there is still an Abolish Daylight Saving Committee in New South Wales, Australia.

Added to the usual claims of such campaigns - for example, that the extra hour of daylight in the evening in summer fades the curtains - is a new one from ADSC spokeswoman Judith Hall, of Gunnedah, who told the Sydney Morning Herald: "No man has the right to choose the time of the rising and setting of the sun, only God."

Reader John McCallum, who told us about this, is surprised Hall doesn't explain why God doesn't simply exercise this choice. When people insist on moving their clocks forward, He should just move the sunrise forward and thwart them that way. " From the New Scientist. Ms Hall was probably perplexed at the gales of laughter that, one hopes, greeted her comments.
