Do we really have to change the clock?

    I too believe Clock should not be changed. Why should we go backwards?

    It is the decision of the executive president.

    Everybody must obey without any question!

    My only worry is that my cockerel will sound half an hour later from 14 April. Therefore, my cockerel will get up half an hour later too.

    Well I think President MR will have a better bowel movement if clock was turned back by half hour. For him it makes sense since if he starts to fart in important meetings it will be embarrassing to the country.

    Power of executive president...

    CBK changed the time, MR was silent.

    MR changes the time. CBK is out of the country.

    The Modern day Sri Lankan leaders have the executive power to do anything willy-nilly other than changing Sun and Moon like the good old JRJ once said.

    Who knows we might one day see we are parity with the GMT. Hmmm I like to see when that is going to happen.

    Lot of barking coming from outside Sri Lanka. Better you stay there we will look after our own affairs.

    You have a very good imagination.

    I did not write this piece, I just cut and paste it from somewhere in anoither thread, I never said I am an economic analyst in USA, yes, the work I do has lot to do with economics, but I am based in Colombo, I am not Anizam and finally I do not work at Sirikotha.

    I am an independent professional and I do not think Ranil Wickremasinghe can pay my rates...

    Funny, for you everyone who does not subscribe to your racists stupid views is someone who works at Sirikotha or an LTTE spy or NGO mafia or Catholic fundamentalist...

    How great!

    `By the way, Arthur C Clark said new millenium starts from year 2001 not 2000 when the rest of the world believed it was 2000. True he is an educated man and all, but then no one is perfect and the educated might not always be right.`


    You imbecile, he was right, just because you are a supporter of mahinda you think everyone who opposes him is wrong. sl is in this hole because of idiots like you.

    does the 2nd decade begin at the beginning of the 10th year or at the beginning of the 11th year? the first decade ends at the end of the 10th year and the second decade begins at the start of the 11th year. same for millennium.
