Daylight Saving Time

Posted on 03.09.08 5:10PM under Fun

It’s Daylight Savings Time!Let me start by saying that I do not like daylight saving time. What a pain in the neck to recalibrate all our clocks to adjust up or down an hour for no reason at all. At least “springing forward” is easier than “falling back”, in terms of adjusting the clocks. But the whole premise is annoying at best and counterproductive at worst.

I’m not saying that I don’t like a later sunset time. That’s fun. (Although I don’t see why we should give that up in the Winter!) Today I also realized another benefit of daylight savings time. It’s drinking time that much sooner. Let’s say that you normally wait until 5 PM to crack that first beer. Thanks to DST, it’s 5 PM an hour earlier today. You didn’t have to endure the full length of day between when you woke up and beer time. You got to fastforward an hour of the day to get to beer time.

Let’s save some daylight again tomorrow!

    i agree. daylight savings is an awful, monstrous thing and it robbed me of an hour and it’s wretched.

    perhaps for that one day it’s 5 sooner, sure, but also, now that it’s lighter later, sometimes I feel bad working on my third beer before night has set in. it feels right, but it seems wrong.

    but then i just drink said beer and forget what i was talking about.
