Angry Time change

This time change is worse than traveling to different time zones. I've been up for 19 hours now and still not feeling like I could go to sleep. It takes me a month to get used to it then in a few more months it happens again.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

I wish they'd discontinue daylight saving time, this time change messes with me badly until I get used to it and by the time I do its time change all over again.

I wish they keep only DST so I have more light after work . Just kidding, no work. It just waists 10 min to change clocks

I make sense all the time. The problem is you only listen intermittently

Follow me on the spot

DST switches don't worry me so much because they are gunna switch back. It's those damn Leap Seconds that really F me up! Once a Leap Second is dolled out, it doesn't get taken back. Right now, International Atomic Time (TAI) leads Universal Time Coordinate (UTC) by 37 seconds!! That's a lifetime when it comes to computational transactions and GPS satellite synchronizations! Not to mention that it's made my sundials totally obsolete! And the worst thing about Leap Seconds is that they show up whenever! Just a bunch of guys in a smoke-filled back room that decide, "yea, next year, lets just add an extra second to the calendar". Absolutely no consideration on the impacts to Stonehenge! So we're randomly forced to just sit around, waiting for some unnamed Cesium atoms to vibrate 9,192,631,770 times. I don't know about you, but I didn't vote for no damn Cesium Atoms!

And why TAI for International Atomic Time? That's totally backwards! I bet it's a French thing.

F' the slowing rotation of the earth!

What do you have to do?
Lots of things. You've been watching me.
Will you show me all of them?
Sure.
Is it hard?
Not if you have the right attitudes. Its having the right attitudes that's hard.

I didn't know about leap seconds, now something else to worry about.
I don't know why I let it bother me (DST), I'm retired so it doesn't matter. I guess I'm so OCD I have to follow the clock anyway.

This switch back to standard time is the one that bothers me. Takes about a month to get used to "sleeping in". Then it's getting dark at 5:00. My body clock can't handle it.
