Daylight saving time –  advancing clocks an hour during summer so evening daylight lasts an hour longer – is one of those geeky-ish ideas that has been adopted by society, to much consternation. Every year (twice a year, actually) there is debate in the U.S. about whether to keep it, extend it, removed it, or do something else.

But as the Washington Post reports today (here), the confusion could be a lot greater: Egypt just cancelled its daylight saving, three days before it was supposed to go into effect.

The story notes that post-Soviet Russia pulled its plan then reinstated it after public outcry, something I hadn’t heard about before.
