Isn't the Eastern time zone the time zone that Christ was killed in?  That's why it's named that way.

Fear the Clam: I'm still hoping New England goes Atlantic.


When someone in New England first proposed this, our (New Brunswick) premier at the time said he was thinking about switching us to Eastern time.  So a drive from Halifax to New York would start in Atlantic, go to Eastern, then Atlantic, then back to Eastern.  He is no longer premier.

Huh, all the time I've been here and I don't think I ever noticed that.

Probably helps that I've been living in either central or eastern that entire time so at most it's only off by an hour. (excepting vacations that are further away, but I don't tend to browse fark much on vacation)
