Seriously, can’t we all just adjust however we feel appropriate? If you really need that extra sunlight, buy a sunlamp, get a job that allows you keep your own hours, or move toward the equator. Just don’t make me change my clock for your own arbitrary benefit.

Not only is the clock changing annoying (especially since some of my electronics don’t know the new rules about when it happens and change early – meaning I have to change them twice), but at this time of year, I need more time at the end of the day, not the beginning. I get off at 4 P.M., and by the time I get home after riding the bus, there really isn’t any daylight left to do anything. And I’m not going to do my yard work at 5 in the morning.

Daylight Saving Time, like timezones themselves, needs to go away. It’s for the greater good. We have alarm clocks now. The farmers can wake up whenever the hell they want.

Speaking of clocks, why doesn’t every single timekeeping device made come with a way to automatically set itself to the atomic clock?
