Just because it's that time of year again ...
Dear morons in charge of this idiocy
When the aliens land they are NOT going to consider us intelligent lifeforms. Because intelligent lifeforms would not ever have come up with the utter nonsense known as daylight savings time. Intelligent lifeforms would say, "If you want more daylight during your waking hours then get up earlier in the morning."

P.S. I've never bought the excuse of this originating with wartime factories saving energy ... I mean, I know that's the reasoning behind it but honestly, since there's the same number of hours of daylight per day no matter what time the clocks say it is, nobody ever thought just to change the operating hours?

You'd never guess I really REALLY hate the idiocy known as clock changes, would you?

Well, can't account for ALL the morons, but I know Canada's last switch to mid-March came about because our previous prime minister claimed we had to do it because some businessmen in Georgia (the U.S. state, not the Eastern European country) wanted us to. Said P.M. being notable for dropping to his knees with his mouth open for anything American.

I've yet to hear of Canada gaining any noticeable benefits from Georgia for this.
