Putting the clock forward at Avebury Stone Circle. Stone Age man didn’t have daylight saving, so twice a year National Trust staff have to move one of the stones

Yes... I thought so... as they stopped moving the stones a few years ago because of an EU rule...

Most clocks these days are so friggin' complicated that I don't know how the hell to alter them.

At least they are accurate for six months of the year................

Would've made a PERFECT April fool joke and it would've been so funny to see how many would fall for it.  If only you'd waited a few days  Razz

Yes it's a good photoshop.... but when I saw that huge boulder I realised that its weight would surely have instantly melted those two tiny tyres.  What a Face lol!
