I see the EU has failed to do away with the archaic ritual of fiddling with the clocks for yet another year.

Psst, did you hear, daylight savings time was created by commies who hate the single market. Pass it on…

(You know, it’s worth a try.)

@aral I remember a story by some French author (Marcel Aymee?). It starts in '40s -- WW2 is at its top, both sides still believe in victory, but it is clear, that it'd take much time and much cost. So, on a secret meeting on neutral ground, a plan is born: this time, let's shift not only mere hour, but twenty years -- it would be surely after the war by then.
Then, in '60s, protagonist gets to some remote French village, that apparently did not get the news -- there are still '40s and German occupation. He manages to escape and come back to Paris -- but it's still occupied Paris...

@brie Ooh, sounds like a fun read. Might try to track it down, thanks :)
