When I was living in the Golan Heights and working in Damascus it got very confusing because the Israelis set their clocks back (or forward) a week apart from the Syrians. All of a sudden you would realize that the border was closing an hour early! It happened a few times where someone got caught out and didn't make it to one side before closing only to try to go back and find that point had closed an hour earlier..
Cheers,
Dave

I've had to remind all my friends about losing an hour tonight. I wonder how many people will forget! So, if I have this right, at 2:00am, it will really be 3:00am, and there won't be a 2:01am this morning, right? UGH!

I set my bedside clock ahead last night, it was 8pm then (set to 9pm), I slept till 7 am, and to be honest, that was the longest I have ever slept...ever!. But I did get up at 3 am yesterday and worked a 10 hour day, and a 12 hour workday the previous, doing a 64 hour week, so that might have something to do with it.

My boss asked if the clocks in England were set forward and backwards, and I couldn't remember, but I said no, they don't (and she said they don't in Germany either). But we did agree on one thing, that it seems to be an out-of-date practice that doesn't make sense to do anymore.

OMG that's a completely horrible thought considering what we call today's "snowflakes". It's bad enough having to deal with them on a one-off basis.

I take it you mean Alt-Right and Nazi Sympathizers? Or people who are against the abolition of slavery? The ARYANS have attempted to hijack this term to use against progressives and those opposing Fascism. Interesting.
