Being from the U.K. I always felt I was bang in the middle of it all and technically according to how the time is structured on this planet I was. Now I'm pretty much always at the end of the day, it's random how the small things make a difference but they really do, most things are already done by the time we wake up. All my old friends have already worked a full day and are heading to the pub as I get to work! My oz and Japanese friends are already to bed awake and into the next day!!
I know this is all rather trivial and obvious but this signpost did make me think.
