This fucking shit again. The day every one of us has to waste an hour of our time changing clocks back an hour. And for what? For no good reason whatsoever, that's what.

At least some of our clocks are a bit smarter and know to do this silly change on their own. After all, a clock should just know what time it is. That saves us a little time. Real time. Not that fake daylight crap, without which we would not be wasting any time at all.

All it changes is which end of the day I have to commute in the dark.
The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

And in a million dollar facility, the boss insisted I hang a clock that does not sync to the GPS master. Guess who gets to climb a ladder and manually sync this piece of shit every week or so?

Night Dark©, the new superhero. :mrgreen:

I don't give a fuck, every day is Sunday and I keep my wristwatch on Winter time: too lazy to change the setting.

And here we fucking go again come this Sunday. Please sign this utterly useless petition to end DST once and for all.
https://www.petition2congress.com/ctas/ ... vings-time
Sure, it's a waste of time but so is DST.

Based on 100 million people wasting 5 minutes changing clocks twice a year, and given an average life expectancy of 80 years, I estimate 23 lives are wasted.

At least a few of those 23 are going to be children.

Please, think of the children. :x
