and apparently for the last time, :whisper:in Russia that is, as our powers to be have decided.
so tonight at 2 in the morning, don't forget to set the alarm, we move the clock forward one hour, to 3.
and if you don't care or just plain forget, well tomorrow is Sunday anyway, no harm done. and during the day you will find out one way or the other, that time is ticking differently.

This is such a made-up issue. I never had a problem adjusting to the new schedule. My schedule is all messed up anyway. They should concentrate on real issues, like resurrecting the GULAG and sending all trash there to do something. I know, "be careful what you wish for", but Russia needs GULAG or there will be no Russia (prediction: if it goes the way it does right now, Russian Empire will cease to exist in 40-50 years, or earlier).

... (prediction: if it goes the way it does right now, Russian Empire will cease to exist in 40-50 years, or earlier).

The primary causes of Russia's population decrease and loss of about 700,000 to 800,000 citizens each year are a :AngelPray: high death rate, low birth rate, high rate of abortions, and a low level of immigration.

I think car clocks, wall clocks and wrist watches are the only things nowdays that don't adjust DST automatically. But who uses those anyways?

oh and btw, I think the clocks went backwards 2 weekends ago and no one noticed. So now they've gone forward so essentially nothing has changed.

Should have read your post yesterday. After our first inline skate this year in beautiful spring weather we were 20 min. too late for a large breakfast at an American diner since we forgot to change our watches! :( So we settled for BBQ-ribs. I'm still feeling sick! :sick:
