The Truth about Daylight Savings Time 10/26/97

I love Daylight Savings Time.

Of course in the Spring I'll be singing a different tune, but in Autumn Daylight Savings Time rules. And I'm not just talking about getting an extra hour sleep, either. If you sleep this hour away you're wasting it, Gentle Reader. I have other plans for my hour.

Sometime after 2:00 AM but before 3:00 AM I'm going to screw-up and screw-up big. And I'm not talking little, here. I'm not talking about the sort of minor screw-ups that make national news. Oh no. I'm talking about the sort of Major Screw-Up that is remembered for millennium to come. I'm talking something Biblical here . . . a whyever-did-Jesus-trust-Judas type of screw-up. I'm talking a screw-up that would make General Custar say "Dude what were you thinking?"

And then at exactly 3:00 AM I'm going to scream "Do over!" at the top of my lungs. And the world is going to set back the clocks (except for Arizona . . . but are they really part of the world?) and I'm going to live that hour over again except without the screw-up.

I'd like to make this article longer but I've got screw-ups to think of. Yes, I may commit more than one. I'm in that sort of mood.

The Truth of the Day: If your viewpoint is skewed enough, the world actually makes sense.
