Timezones are one of the most interesting [1] things in the world.
Ireland doesn't move clocks forward for summer time, they move them
backward for winter time... I swear, when I first heard that, I
thought it was just one of those Irish jokes with no basis, but it is
true...

Plus, they switch clocks at 2am all the time, not at 2am forward and
3am backward.
