    Default Venezuela creates own time zone

    BBC NEWS | World | Americas | Venezuela creates own time zone

    The bit that got me was this:

    And President Chavez said earlier this year that schoolchildren would arrive for lessons with more energy as a result of the change.

    "These children have to get up at five in the morning... they arrive at school dead tired. And why? Because of our time."
    So what he has done is put the clocks back half an hour, so these kids will now be getting up at 5:30, by the clock, but the laugh of it is that they will not be getting up later at all. It only seems like it because the clocks have gone back.

    They make it sound like they're getting more daylight. There's still only the same amount.
