fucking daylight savings fucking government

Daylight savings is stupid. Realistically unless you changed the clocks every day to make sunrise and sunset around the same period the whole idea is useless. If you want to save power find another way. I also don't care about an agrarian schedule.


Also, fucking government for changing things so that daylight savings is next week and not this one!

    Captain K was all paranoid about DST and I had to look it up online for him so he wouldn't wind up at work an hour early.

    But now I know when to change my clocks back.

    DST is the one good excuse for turning up to work an hour late one day of the year.

    (The summertime one obviously, not the one last night)

    DST is pretty pointless, but I like it for the one night a year that I feel like I got extra sleep/got to stay up later without negative effects.

    Wait, when is it? Next week, right?

    Because I went to bed late last night and woke up early and I feel great. I thought maybe it was last night and I didn't know.

    Roommate's gf went to England to break up with with her then-fiance.

    Apparently England does their DST earlier or something, so she got to the airport for her trip home an hour late.

    Spent twenty-four hours in the airport.

    Being even more miserable than you would normally be staying in an airport all day

    This thread just reminds me how much fucking work this idiot idea has caused me and my group at work.

    Way to go, dipshits in Congress and the fucking chimp in the Oval Office. We get to burn hundreds of hours applying DST patches to servers because you assholes decided it would be a good idea to placate some idiot special interest groups like the fucking Convenience Store Association of America.

    Well you could focus that energy into something constructive
    Or even just be angry about something slightly less stupid
    That would be a step in the right direction
