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!

Can I have a motorcycle when I get old enough?
If you take care of it.
What do you have to do?
Lots of things. You've been watching me.
Will you show me all of them?
Is it hard?
Not if you have the right attitudes. Its having the right attitudes that's hard.
