DST

It sneaked up on me this time. I had been up for a while this morning doing my routine on the computer when I looked down in the lower right corner and saw the time. I knew it couldn't be right, it's still dark out and my wall clock says it's 6am, not 7am like the computer shows. I start trying to adjust the time before I notice what happened. I looked at the calendar just to get confirmation from something actually on paper. I'm a little mistrustful of electronics.

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

I'll be happy when they adjust one way or the other and leave it alone .

it was all invented by asshats like Al Gore, and totally useless....
rumors were floating that Texas and Oklahoma were going to lock in one time forever like Arizona does.... it is the most stupid thing the asshats came up with.

Not to defend Algore but DST was first suggested by Ben Franklin. It was first implemented in the US in WW1.

I wished they'd do away with DST and be like Arizona.

DST is like having a blanket that is too short - so you cut a foot off the bottom and sew it onto the top...
