    So, does it look any better than 2020-21?

    I'm always still in trouble again

      I'll have to wait 9 minutes before I can answer that.


      ETA: Nope - doesn't seem to be any different as yet.

        I wonder how long it'll take for it to sink in that the new year is pronounced "2020 too"

                Why is that handkerchief stuck on a stick?

                  Forget that, I'm still trying to figure out why you celebrate New Years on the half hour.

                    Historical "reason" is that around the time of federation South Australia and the Northern Territory should be only half an hour different from the eastern states for commercial convenience. No-one ever explained how, in 1901, it would have made a skerrick of difference to commercial transactions. Eastern time is set by the time-line just off the east coast of Australia, Central time is actually set by the time-line running through the Eastern States. Alice Springs (Northern Territory) is in the middle of the GMT+9 hours zone

                    Side note: New Zealand was involved in early negotiations to become part of the proposed federation: it was originally considered possible that the capital of the new nation would be located there.


                    Australia has 5 standard time zones:
                    • UTC+8:00: Australian Western Standard Time (AWST)
                    • UTC+8:45: Australian Central Western Standard Time (ACWST)
                    • UTC+9:30: Australian Central Standard Time (ACST)
                    • UTC+10:00: Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST)
                    • UTC+10:30: Lord Howe Standard Time (LHST)
                    Central Western Standard time is one I never heard of until now.

                        Maybe someone did at that - you should see the history of interstate railway rivalry.

                          I remember that scene in Sleepless in Seattle when midnight on New Year's Eve struck simultaneously in New York City and Seattle.
