Daylight savings time sucks.

It is now 5:45pm here in California, and its dark outside. Actually, its been dark for a while. Stupid time change. Now the sun comes up one hour early. How does this help me? I don't get up with the sun. I get up when the alarm rings at 7:45am, whatever time it is. Now all I get is one less hour of sun at the end of the day, when I want it the most.

They say that the only reason we aren't on permanent daylight time is because if we were, then the schoolchildren would have to go to school in the dark in December and January. Well you know what? Those kids need to learn to face their fears and walk to school in the dark so that I can have some freakin' sun when I leave work. Yeah.

ps. When I spell checked this post, blogger wanted me to change "freakin'" to "foreskin". Nice.

you took the word right out of my mouth.

i dont care if its dark all day as long as it doesnt feel like the middle of the night when i leave work. makes everything seems so much depressing.

You guys need to stop complaining and do something about it. That's why I'm designing a mirror we can launch into space and give us a little more daylight in the winter for real.

An engineering solution to an engineering problem, baby.

I take a dump on your giant mirror.

Yeah, your face will take a dump on my giant mirror.

It's going to be in space, man. How are you going to take a dump in space?

Yeah, but now we're on standard time.

If it weren't for daylight time, you'd never know what lightened early evening hours were like. So don't knock it.

On the other hand, I agree that daylight time sucks. But I am a strong proponent of never going on it in the first place.

I hate the fucking

Actually, I would rather be on a time zone system where the sun comes up around 11am, just in time for lunch, so I could have a few hours of sun after work. And in the winter the sun would come up at like 2pm, so I still had time to enjoy the sun after work.

All I need is some fucking vacuum action and my shit will be all over your mirror.
