As a Pacific-coaster, I feel your pain. The surprise is rather spoiled by Australians and their
upside-down excessively-early timezone. (Australia continues to annoy.) I found all about Unicoins before I went to sleep last night and didn't see them until I woke. That just tans my hide.
However, the point of April Fools is that it's flips the world upside down for a day. I imagine that people who enjoy the festivities early on this day have other problems to deal with the other 364 1/4 days of the year. For instance:
Being passed-out drunk when the ball drops in Times Square because the calendar flipped too early.
Being constantly confused by co-workers saying that the day is Tuesday when it clearly it's Wednesday.
Being asked by folks in my timezone: "What's the future like?"
Finally, they have one other disappointment:
- The joke ends before many people have started to enjoy it.
But to be honest, we can't win for losing:
April Fool's Day changes should be based on the user's time zone
If you want to be surprised on April 1, don't read meta on March 31.
