Daylight Saving

I really could not afford to lose an hour's sleep last night, but then even more time after work taken in reseting clocks.

    Has the Productivity Commission every done a report on the economic waste of daylight saving due to the time spent clock fiddling.

    Let's assume 10 million clock owners (excl Qld, WA, NT) spends 10 min twice a year changing their clocks.

    That's 200 million minutes (or 3.3 million hours) wasted.

    Even using a low costing of peoples time ($10 per hour), that's a cost to the nation of $33 million to change the clocks backwards and forwards each year!


  2. I put my clock forward, and it fell off the shelf.

  3. And I thought you were good at balancing acts.


Whenever I wish I was young again, I am sobered by memories of algebra.
