In honor of Hugo Chavez and Woody Allen....
Starting in September, Hugo Chavez is going to be shifting Venezuela's clocks forward by a half-hour (to ensure "a more fair distribution of the sunrise" according to Reuters).
An hour I can understand -- but a half-hour?
How long is it going to be before Chavez delivers this kind of speech?If you liked that clip, then I must encourage you to click here as well. posted by Dan on 08.24.07 at 09:48 AM
Fish, barrel- may I introduce you to gun. Maybe you should worry more about crazy leaders who actually have the ability to inflict major disasters on the world, like Bush and Cheney.posted by: Steve LaBonne on 08.24.07 at 09:48 AM [permalink]
Now we just wait for the local headline:
I see the Newfie-Venezuelan jokes have already popped up online.
(As time-zone geeks and CBC-listeners know, Newfoundland time is also a half-hour offset from its neighbor time zones, at GMT-3.5. The new Venezuelan time will be GMT-4.5)posted by: John Mark Ockerbloom on 08.24.07 at 09:48 AM [permalink]
I am still troubled by the inequity of the eastern Venezuelans receiving their light first. Is there nothing Boss Hugo can do to remedy this injustice?posted by: Charles L. on 08.24.07 at 09:48 AM [permalink]
What about the classic _Twilight Zone_ episode "The Mirror" (with Peter Falk)? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8HvvX24N_8Yposted by: John Fast on 08.24.07 at 09:48 AM [permalink]
