Why is this still a thing?


daylight savings 2017


Every year, twice a year, we fuck with our clocks. First you spring forward, then you fall back, a cute little motto to help you remember when to do what. The only problem is…there’s no good reason to continue doing it. It originated during WWI as a fuel-saving measure, but in 2017, energy consumption is a lot more complex than chopping wood or burning coal. Whatever minuscule benefits existed in 1917, they don’t exist now, and now is when we’re living. It just seems utterly pointless. Sure, it’s nice to have it be lighter later in the day, but unless you spend all day, every day working outside, just turn on a goddamn lamp.
