It is that time of year again, and lacking anything better to do, certain congress critters have come up with this plan to make daylight saving permanent.
Now I don’t have a problem with getting rid of the twice yearly time change, but here is where it kind of leaves a bad taste in my mouth: Daylight Saving Time is not the correct time!
In actuality, Daylight Saving is about an hour off or more from the actual local time. The whole point of AM, Noon, and PM was based on the idea that at Noon, the sun would be at its highest point in the sky. Under Daylight Saving, actual noon occurs around 1:00PM, plus or minus a half hour.
But I get it. If your job has you coming in from 9 to 5, you just wouldn’t have enough time to go play golf after work, and changing the working hours to 8 to 4 would be akin to socialism… So let’s just fuck with the clocks and pretend we’re coming in at 9 when it’s actually 8. Yeah… That’s such a smart idea.
For the life of me, I have no idea how humanity ever managed to make it this far.
Again, thanks for the jokes, and if you want to contribute more, our submission page remains open.
