👋 Good morning Twitter, time for a quick Saturday experiment:

Answer the question below, and only *then* read the subsequent tweet for context.

"Next Wednesday's meeting has been moved forward two days. What day is it now on?"
According to the research described in this @claudiahammond story (via @davidbauer newsletter), the answer can tell you how you perceive the passage of time.

Really interesting, and something I'd never questioned before…
It also feels like this means "clocks go back" and "clocks go forward" might not be the best shorthand to use for moving in and out of daylight saving time 🤔
