Daylight Savings Time-ultimately Senseless

Daylight Savings Time was a rather stupid thing to begin with. It was an even stupider thing when the governments decided to muck around with doing it at any time they pleased. It used to be last weekend of October and the first weekend in April, with the clocks being turned back or ahead, whatever the case may be. This day, it’s whenever the government decides it will be necessary. Daylight Savings Time where we turn the clocks back in the United States and some other parts of the world is on November 6th 2011.

Some places around the world have

gotten rid of this inane tradition and bless them for it. I mean when you think about it, does it really matter springing your clock ahead or back? All it accomplishes is throwing your sleep patterns off for a week or two straight. There’s some flimsy excuse about saving energy or some such rot, but if you think about it, it really doesn’t matter in the end.

We’re going to be up the same amount of hours, in fact an hour earlier now due to the fact that our sleep schedule is thrown off for a couple of weeks. Brilliant planning that one and I’d imagine that can’t have good effects on our health either.

And besides, it’s

not like we technically lose an hour or gain an hour in the grand scheme of things. We lose the hour in the spring and days become longer. We gain the hour back in the fall and days are shorter. Funnily enough, it does seem to lead to the days being around the same length anyway regardless, especially when the winter months arrive.

They really shouldn’t have changed it a couple of years ago. First weekend in April, last weekend in October, really something that was easy enough to remember, don’t you think? It was that way for years and it should have remained that way. Hopefully someone gets sense in their head and just abolishes this useless concept. Leave the clocks alone and don’t meddle with time, end Daylight Savings Time.

So yeah, now it’s the first weekend of November, November 6th, turn your clocks back, or you’ll be out of sync with everyone else and let’s continue this senseless process of ping ponging one hour back and forth between lost and gained.
