    I woke up this morning to a new day, yes, our crazy politicians have decided that we're going to change over to decimal time. Why not
    , everything else in Australia goes by decimals.

    I live on the East Coast in Melbourne.
    Now instead of it being, AEST (Austrralian Eastern Standard Time), its going to be, ARSEt (Australian Real Standard Eastern Time).

    100 Seconds in a minute, 100 minutes in an hour, 10 hours in a day, 10 days in a week etc.

    Cheers,

    Randy

    Really? Why would they do it? It just doesn't make any sense.

    EDIT: Sorry, I get it now. I was a little slow on the uptake. lol
