They're Doing It To Us as Usual

Daylight Saving Time Is Still A Scam: To sum up: It was never established to help farmers, and has absolutely nothing to do with agriculture; it does not save energy, and may actually expend more of it; and it was not invented by Benjamin Franklin (belief that it was, is an anachronistic misinterpretation of a satirical piece he wrote about the Parisians of his own time).

  1. Sounds more like the title for a statement on the economy. :)

    Last weekend my wife and I were reminding the kids about daylight savings coming up. I thought to myself, "I should email Crider to remind him about this. He loves DST changes."

    Considering that the NYC Marathon is on Sunday and thousands of people from all over the world - including places where DST does not exist - are here, the question is: could the timing possibly be worse? And how many people will oversleep by an hour?

  4. When I was a kid in the mid-50s I went to a movie every Saturday morning. There was an ad that ran frequently before the movie that said something like "Don't Let Them Turn Back the Clock and Interfere With God's Natural Time!" It was animated and in black and white. I never saw this on television, just at the movies, and thought the ad was just as stupid as DST. Anybody else remember this? I don't think I've ever told anyone about it who remembered seeing it.

  5. DST was created for the sole purpoe of putting Drive-in Movies out of business!

  6. I'm not worried, Jeff. I have Elaine Benes and Jerry Seinfeld to wake me.
