    This is your official warning that this Sunday is Daylight Savings time. I really wish they'd do away with that. Does anyone here think it is a solution to any relevant problems? I just remember growing up, that once a year Sunday 6am magically became 7am mass which lead to even more pew drowsiness. Later when I alter served it was a wonder I didn't light a priest on fire.

    Tomorrow is Worship of Tools Day. See also: What a Tool.
    Who is your favorite tool?




    Happy Friday all ye idiots. Stay warm and dry. Spring is around the corner and I am rubbing my hands together in anticipation.

    It means that Little Timmy doesn't have to walk to school in the dark!

    I don't know if anyone remembers that there was a bill presented to permanently end the time change late last year, and it UNANIMOUSLY PASSED IN THE SENATE.

    It is currently stalled in the House for undisclosed reasons...

    However, we can draw one conclusion: some business/ industry would lose money if the time change was eliminated.
    Whenever a bill/ proposal that would actually benefit the American people is shot down, that is always the answer.

    Change my mind.

    I went from NM (mountain time) to Dallas (central) to DC (EST) while daylight savings time changed.

    I don't know what the fuck time it is.

    Fuck it, it's pizza time. That's what time it is. Bitchin

    Try figuring out the time while traveling across all the time zones for your birth control.

    Nope. Some other party will want to attach an amendment to it that includes something totally unrelated and contentious but people will only be told “they don’t want to get rid of daylight saving” rather than “they want to roll back the age of consent” or some other tagalong provision.

    Can't be that. Georgia is one of the states that has passed making Daylight Savings permanent. Waiting on Congress to repeal the Uniform Time Act of 1966.

    Didn’t we start doing this because some dude in New Zealand wanted to look at bugs after his work day?

    I once attended a week long training course near Baltimore with someone that had five days earlier moved to Korea from Texas. In less than three weeks she went through 36 timezones.

    All I know is that I'm glad that spring is almost here because I am tired of short days. I need sunlight and I'm so ready for winter to be over.

    As for this week's topic, anytime daylight savings comes up all I can think of is the episode of The Adventures of Pete and Pete where they are so excited about the magic of the extra hour. For some reason the magic idea around specifically the fall time change made me not hate it.

    I do hate springing forward but again I'll gladly take some more daylight.

    I’m of the opinion we should move the clock forward and leave it there. Daylight at 4 am in the summer would be useless.

    I got robbed today. Fucking twice, if you can believe that!

    Fucking $62 for a stuffed octopus that will fit in a typical shoebox, from the local zoo. Then $55 at The Cheesecake Factory for two slices of cheesecake and a 7" round cheesecake with strawberries.
