First an extra day of work and now we lose an hour of sleep?!


Just recently I had to work an extra day without additional pay (see leap year post), now you're telling me that this weekend we have to lose an hour of sleep because we have to "spring forward"?!!

Who was the Einstein who thought up this friggin' bright idea? It's the middle of the night and we're supposed to skip ahead an hour?!

Hey!! I have an idea!! - here's what we should do instead!

When it's time in the spring to set the clocks ahead an hour, how 'bout we do it at 4pm on a Friday?! That way the large majority of us will get to go home an extra hour early!


But NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! Those evil corporate bastards would never go for that idea and they would never let their political lobbies allow their paid off congressmen and senators vote for such an idea.

Then the large majority of us lose an hour of pay. We don't all own our own businesses.

It was devised by Ben Franklin to save on lighting costs, but a study was recently done and it was deduced that more is actually spent on heating costs, so it's a negative.
