Arthur C. Clarke fashion

The corresponding article isn't very interesting, except for this bit of religious nutjobbery over daylight savings time:

The Venerable Gnanawimala says the change moved the country to a spiritual plane 500 miles east of where it should be. "After this change I feel that many troubles have been caused to Sri Lanka. Tsunamis and other natural disasters have been taking place."

but this picture of Arthur C. Clarke wearing a t-shirt that says "I INVENTED THE SATELLITE AND ALL I GOT WAS THIS LOUSY T-SHIRT" is awesome...

    Pah, we named an award after him, and everything. Still, that t-shirt does rock quite hard.

    Ha. Its not really about Daylight savings, though.
    Thats the official stance but I've heard that the reason they deviated from Indian Standard Time in '96 was that the then-President's numerologist suggested it would be better for the country because, um, something.

    Clarke's stance on the whole thing is bullshit though.
    And yeah, thats a sweet T-Shirt.

    Meh. The tee would work better if it had got it right: "I invented the geostationary satellite and yadda-yadda."
