'[OT:] RTC Summer/Winter Time'

(changed to OT)

I always wondered why nobody seems to be bothered that DST creates one
full clock hour that corresponds with two hours of real time. Imagine
the confusion when a muder is comitted halfway that hour, and I have an
aliby for exactly that moment - or rather, for one of the two moments
that correspond to that 2:30 moment :)

       I don't really see it as a problem. I don't know about cops, but whenever I
right a time on an "official" type of document I include the time zone, EST
vs. EDT in my case. Or, to keep things completely clear, just write
everything in GMT. TTYL

Back when I was a part time paramedic (and didn't need to sleep), I
worked the 6PM to 6AM shift.  During the spring changeover, our county
dispatchers always recorded the times as standard time and daylight
savings time on the changeover nights.  One year, if it would not have
been for that procedure, we got back to the station before we left.  Out
at 1:14AM and returned at 1:11AM.  Even with the EDT and EDST after the
times, the run report still didn't look quite right.

    This reminds me of the story of when our current calendar was adopted
(in the 1700s, I think?). Several days of one month were skipped to
get the calendar back in sync with the seasons. Lots of people wanted
to be paid for those days...

I heard a long time ago that there were going to be test cases
in the US and other countries that instituted taxes to pay for the
armed forces. Don't know if any ever eventuated

There have been passive resistances against some taxes, eg
not paying TV license or local body rates, in an attempt to clog
the courts in defended prosecutions. Can get results, partly
through the bad publicity for the taxer

Similarly there was supposed to be a case to challenge the New
Zealand Government's authority, as it's claimed it's not a ratified
parliament (dates back to some unsigned document or non-taken
referendum 100 years ago). Don't think that ever came to anything
either. Sure it would have made the news
