Well, to be fair, most of 'em aren't keen on anyone between the Med and the Indian Ocean.

I just wish DST would hurry up and end. I'm tired of driving to work in the dark.

DST is one of the stupidest things created by modern man...

I used to work for the NCR corporation, which at the time was headquartered in Dayton OH, and we had
this joke:

If its Noon in New York, and 9am in LA, what time is it in Dayton?

1957.

I used to work for AT&T during the acquisition.

Sorry we ruined your company. :-(

I came to NCR by way of AT&T myself, actually, and it was a classic case of an organization making a
decision based solely on financial and paper considerations without any thought to whether the logistics
(both physical and cultural) would work out.

Wasn't the first by them.  McCaw cellular was also full of FAIL.  I was there for that one, too.

I just want to applaud  Subbyfor the correct spelling in the headline.  Still rare to see these days.

Okay, how in the hell did the Fark commenting system manage to screw up the formatting *that* time?!

So, they Jews and the Ayrabs can't even agree on what time it is?

Israel, meanwhile, Jerusalem won't change its clocks until Oct. 27, when the rest of Europe "falls back."

I don't care what the Eurovision contest says, Israel is not in Europe.
