    You're complaining about a time change, then telling people to not complain about time changes. Hard to not see the irony in that position.

    I am sorry, I can see how that seems inconsistent. Let me rephrase: There should be a single, unified time standard that does not involve any changes whatsoever. So I should, in effect, have told people not to complain about a LACK of time changes.

    If that still seems awkward, well, that's as clear as I can get right now. :shrug:

    Everyone is free to live by universal time if they so wish. It's just that hardly anyone does.

    Let's all just split the difference and adjust the time by 30 minutes. That will be the new universal time.

    He's referring to singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette's song "Ironic," which became the subject of debate over her misuse of that term.
