A fiendish plan by the farmers of Britain to confuse the hell out of everyone else, especially those that play Eve or any other MMORPG that runs on GMT. Its real name is Western European Summer Time, but of course, that doesn't involve the word Britain/British so ergo it's crap.
edit About BST
Daylight Savings has recently been a huge issue always been a huge issue in Brittan, highlighting just how little occurs in this country. The reason people are so scared of BST is because of fear that the Sun God would punish them for trying to tell him what to do. Hey, we all saw what happened to Oedipus when he tried to defy the Gods.
However, now that the Nazi Communist Military regime is in power, they decided to fuck what the people think contine it anyway- after all, the people are all brain dead drunks who don't know what they want, not like the Aryan supermen who know exactly what we want and will never, ever, make a mistake (I'll be sent to jail if I say otherwise). The aftermath is always disasterous disastrous. Algae clogged the Tems and killed all the fish(except the blowfish which feed on the poisonous slime and threaten to destroy humanity as they morph into vile beasts), traffic ground to a halt, and the engish cricket team started losing games. Scientific evidence claims that these events had no link at all to daylight savings and would have occurred regardless like they do on everyday of every year, but this is thought to be propaganda because we all know that the Sun God is pissed and these are actually the first 3 plagues out of a scheduled 300.
If you really want to get your ear worn off in a hurry, start talking about daylight savings to a Englishman. The poms seriously think that they are the only place that has ever thought of having daylight savings before and as such are unaware of the impact of the extra hour of daylight on curtains and bovines.
edit Good things about BST
- You can use it as an excuse for why you rolled in to work at 12:00 "Sorry forgot to adjust my alarm clock".
- Just hope your co-workers don't notice that you would still have been an hour late (or more without flexi-time even later).
- It lulls you into thinking that all the days from now on will be sunny and bright.
- It's British by God!
- Computers (VCRs and TiVos) change their clocks automatically.
edit Bad things about BST
- When to changes back to GMT there is a chance you will get into work early/on-time (delete as appropriate).
- It still pisses it down.
- None of the other bloody clocks change themselves (unless you've got one of those "Atomic" ones which makes you a ponce anyway, hope it bloody melts down).
- I want more sleeping, stop tweeting bloody birds!!
- GMT annoys the French (because the meridian doesn't run through Paris)
edit The Worst Part of BST
By far the worst part of British Summer Time is that all of the British prepubescents are released from their dungeons, aka school, and let out into the world where their annoying accents reign supreme.
