... if you changed that B to a D and moved 2200 miles west, give or take a few, you'd already be into it...

and I've never understood why we aren't (already in BST that is).

The light conditions which were present when the clocks went back in autumn, happened a couple of weeks ago I think but for some reason we have to wait another month.

You assume sir that we all trundle off to our beds of an evening at exactly the same time and rise sharpish with the crow of the morning cockerel. That doesn't square well with staying up till gone 3 polishing off a nice bottle of red before trooping off to U11s football [soccer I believe you call it] at 8:30, barely 5 hours later.

Sleep is a very elastic concept.

Sleep may very well be a very elastic concept, but the rate at which the liver processes alcohol isn't. I hope your U11's football match is within walking distance, or you are highly likely to be driving with a blood alcohol concentration above the D.D. limit. How many people do you share that bottle with?

Strewffff. :roll:

I don't drink a bottle at 3am. I might start at about 8, it might last till 3, maybe not. At an hour per unit I'm barely past slightly tipsy the whole night. And we go on bikes anyway - what sort of people do you think I'm growing? Motorists?
