Personal Summer Time

Obviously it is undesirable to have to change the clocks all on the same day twice a year. It causes far too much congestion and logistics. The answer as I am sure we all agree is to do it gradually. One way to do this is to do it person at a time, according to some kind of personal biometric. The more of this quantity, the earlier you get to change every single bloody beeping technological thing in the house. As for which biometric key to measure the value of, I would suggest starting with ego.

       This is what I don't understand about clocks. They are supposed to be good at keeping time - it's their only job, the one that they were designed for. But we are perpetually having to tell _them_ what the correct time actually is. If anything should know for itself when the time changes, it's a clock.

       Well most of ours do, as a few years ago I changed all the clocks we have for radio-controlled clocks that change on the time signal from somewhere that used to be Rugby.   

       The hardship comes from all the things that aren't clocks but have a timekeeping feature (or bug) built in, but without sufficient intelligence or completion of design to do the change itself.   

       Cameras, for example, are the prime culprits.

       //radio-controlled clocks// That's exactly the problem.

       I'm in. Oh wait, that was my egoistic self talking. You first, then.

       I already have my own standard time.
Everything is now, and everything else feels like just-the-other day.
Sometimes can't recall what month it is.
