I hate daylight savings time.

It makes no sense. It doesn’t actually change the amount of daylight we have, it only changes when the daylight occurs.

A blogger I read a long time ago said it was like cutting off your head, standing on your head and calling yourself taller.

It really says quite a bit about us as a species though. About our hubris. See the daylight happens whether we’re up or not. But we Americans have decided that we don’t like to be up at 5 a.m. So we change the clocks so the daylight happens when we want it to happen. We change the day to suit ourselves, instead of changing ourselves to suit the day.

Ridiculous.
