The clocks go back this weekend, signalling the start of GMT and wintertime.

The good news is that this gives us an extra hour. While most will just be content with an hour to lay in, it got me thinking.

If you could have an extra hour at any time of the day, what would you do with it?

What about an extra day?

Did anyone else ever get confused when DST would kick in during a midnight movie and the guide would make it look like it was a ridiculously long film?

More accidents? What about spontaneous combustible clock death?

It's supposed to allow for the darker hours. 'Studies' have shown there would be more accidents if we started earlier in the darker half of the year. But that doesn't mean we can't stay on GMT and forget BST.

The other issue is that Europe and the US also change their clocks and we'd be out of sync. I've seen the issues this can cause every time we're out by a week with the US (such as next week) and know how much it can impact business.

Why don't we just put the clocks back half an hour, and stop changing the time forever?

But it makes a difference further down the line, whatever time you wake up.

The 'extra hour' is actually counterproductive at this end of the 'mickey mouse' time shift pb ... it happens at 2am and I'd imagine that most people would be unconscious or totally not bothered at that time to make any decision has to how to put the 'extra hour' to any productive use except to stay where they are ;)
