When do I go for the kill on amazon when the price has been dropping consecutively for many days now?
Keep in mind that they'll probably honor a price drop within 7 days after purchase.
If you don't care why would you comment?

Most people who have a fasting blood test schedule it for the morning
As I do but some people work nights.  ;)
"LESS IS MORE" It is the cumulative effect that kills deals!!! How many times do I have to say this?  >:(

I was wonder why you just don't eat a normal meal then after the fast. I have a blood test tomorrow and have to fast for 12 hours and afterwards I will eat a normal lunch.
Most people do just that (have a coffee and a regular supper).

Assuming one hasn't eaten since 12 last night, it's more like 21 hours. I'm guessing that your 12 hours are about 50% sleeping hours (for most of the population )(11PM-11AM or something like that).

Melbourne:
Fast begins
at 6:05 AM dawn degrees
or at 6:15 AM dawn fixed minutes

Fast ends 
R' Moshe Feinstein 
One who finds fasting difficult may eat at -
 6:01 PM
One who does not find fasting difficult
should wait until the time for מוצאי שבת at -
 6:09 PM

Asara B'teves

Fast begins 2:30 AM

Fast ends 7:33 PM
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I had a fasting surgery, my appointment was the last in the day (as it was a pediatric hospital and I was the oldest, and they schedule it in age order, youngest first) and the kid before me had complications in the surgery room. I didn't get surgery that day and needed to do it again a week later.
I'm not who you think I am.

That's just the Alter Rebbe's Zman. Most wait till a later Zman.

The flip side of it is, most of those who break their fast using the Alter Rebbe's Zman start their Friday night dinner after 10:30pm for about 3 months.

Most won't. Some will.

ETA: There's no issue with bringing in Shabbos early it's just that we try Davening Ma'ariv only after Nacht.

According to the opinion that dawn is when the sun reaches 16.1 below the horizon, during the summer months in the northern locals, where the sun doesn't go that far below the horizon altogether, anything that needs to be done before dawn, needs to be done before midnight and we use the time of midnight as the time of dawn.
Based on the Siddur of the Alter Rebbe by Sefiras Ha'omer.

Gateshead yes. I'm not sure about Antwerp. Although not really worse on the beginning. Midnight is around the same everywhere.

DW once had surgery while pregnant and needed to be fasting. They first brought her in at around 7pm and the nurse says to her how there is an issue because she was getting dehydrated....then asked if her doctor knew she was pregnant and all sorts of intelligent questions.
