An Extra Hour

So, the clocks went back one whole hour today, heralding the end of British Summer Time. Of course, most of us spent this extra time sleeping, but what else could you possibly do with an extra sixty minutes? As ever, Digital Sickbag has the answer!

  • Watch an entire episode of 60 Minutes.
  • Alternatively, watch two episodes of Hancock's Half Hour.
  • Bake a potato, then set the clock back, and marvel at how your food was ready in no time at all.
  • Refuse to set your watch back the one hour, but change all the rest of the clocks in the house, and then pretend you are a time traveller from the future visiting the past.
  • Boil twenty three-minute eggs, one after the other.
  • Watch part of a shitty film, read some of a rubbish book, or simply spend an hour doing something you don't like. Then, set the clocks back and be safe in the knowledge that you didn't waste any of your precious time doing those things.
  • Prepare for the onset of Seasonal Affective Disorder by going out and buying loads of lamps and Prozac.
  • Before the clocks go back, go out and rob a store, or hot-wire a car or something, and then watch with glee as the time in which you committed your felony is wiped from history, allowing you to completely get away with your crime.
  • Make love. Thirty times.
  • Count to 216,000.
  • Go to Greenwich and be really mean to everyone there. It is Greenwich Mean Time now, after all.
  • Laugh smugly at people who have forgotten to set their clocks correctly, and revel in their bleary-eyed confusion as they wake up one hour too early.
  • Refuse to acknowledge the time change, and insist upon living in your own, personal time-zone.
  • Use the extra hour to finally update your crappy blog which you have been neglecting for the past three weeks.
What will YOU do with this extra hour, Sickbaggers?

I took the fictional drug, "Cake", which makes time slow down, so one minute seems like one hour, therefore I had a whole 60 hours of spare time. Unfortunately, I was too off my face on the fictional drug, "Cake" to do anything constructive.

Personally I spent the time laughing at Kerry Katona.

Only fair really.

Send it to West Australians who lost EXACTLY the same amount of time and are missing it. Very much.

I should have used the extra time to reply to comments.

Hello!

Being confined to the main floor of my house because of a recent surgery, there's frac all to do with that hour except piddle around on the internet.

I've easily made use of several extra hours this way.

Oh.. but living in SK, we don't actually change time.

I just pretend... and piddle online anyway.
