The original "daylight savings" proposal included cannon at sunrise.
I could go for that.

The primary health damage is done by shifting time at all, after that car crashes and other accidents.

Daylight saving time has its advantages, such as more post-work daylight in the summer.
But the switch can be tough on the body clock.
The hour shift can interfere with sleep, especially for night owls, according to a 2007 study in the journal BMC Biology.
A 2008 study published in the journal BMC Physiology suggest that people who like to burn the midnight oil have the most trouble shifting forward in the spring, while early risers struggle to "fall back" in autumn.

The real outrage is to make us work by the clock, like automatons, rather than live by the rhythms of nature as we once did.
But that's not likely to change. So fucking party tonight.

All I know is that CA is 2 hours behind my time in the winter and 1 hour in the summer. NYC is 2 hrs ahead of me in the summer and 1 hr ahead in the winter...

Shit! is this the first 1:30am? or the Second 1:30am???

Edit:
By looking at the time stamp on my post and realizing that it is Gerlach 2:36am MST, and I live in the PST it must be the second 1:30am.

Crap, they fell back in Mexico last week, when we arrived, and we had to fall back again when we got back. And we changed time zones. Meh, I don't sleep well now anyway.

There, I made it about me. Are we proud yet?
