Spain uses CET and thus is UTC+1.  It is a bit after 0700.  At the

I'm sure the balloon and package is already in full sun.

Society is, always has been, and always will be a structure for the
exploitation and oppression of the majority through systems of
political force dictated by an elite, enforced by thugs, uniformed or

the very majority whom the system oppresses.
