DST – or, Damned Stupid Tinkering!

Excuse me while I yawn, and attempt to stay awake long enough to write this post.

Yes, it’s that time of year (at least, in the great USofA) when the idiot politicians decree the clocks shall be wound forward an hour, so we’ll all lose sleep and arrive in work on Monday morning with matchsticks propping our eyelids open.

“No, I wasn’t out clubbing till the early hours, Mister Boss man, the bloody clock gained an hour in the middle of the night.”

“We must do it,” is the plaintive response of those who uphold this ancient and crazy tradition, “or the little kiddies will be standing in the dark every morning waiting for the school bus.”

Simple solution: let the schools start an hour later in winter, or, put the damned clocks to DST and leave them there permanently!

It’s no good. I can’t stay awake any longer. Here’s a short video by C G P Grey explaining how stupid it all is…zzzzz…zzzzz…

Close the door quietly on your way out.
