It was bad, yesterday. How bad? So bad that neither my wife and I had the energy to reheat a rotisserie chicken we had bought earlier from the store. We ended up ordering a pizza with olives and tasty, tasty carbs instead. I’ve been yawning most of the last two days. So have most the people I know.
Heck, I was yawning when I got the mail today, and my neighbor was all, like, Hey, man, you gotta wake up! I told him, It gets harder every year — and we both laughed. I could hear his laughter change mid-stream, though, to the laugh of a man who realized that crud, it was getting harder every year.
Maybe we should end DST. Shoot, I can’t even remember if I’ve said that in the past!

We spend more time on DST than off, and we never really get used to the transition. I’d rather end it and go back to regular time, year-round, but I’d settle for DST, full-time, at this point.
Put me in for “staying on regular time”.
The only reason DST still exists, is that Congress fears a slippery slope.
If they repeal one government program that everybody hates, then the voters might expect them to repeal *other* government programs that everybody hates.
Like the Ex/Im Bank. Or appliances that are more expensive, and don’t work.
Just think of all the
bribespolitical contributions they lose.
The trick is to induce something like jet lag … stay up ridiculously late the Friday before, wake up whenever Saturday and again stay up ridiculously late.. then do all of Sunday on the new time. Monday, you’ll be tired but on the new schedule.
Still sucks, though.
If daylight makes such a difference to some sectors, they can change when they chose to do business and leave the rest of us the heck alone.
I’m convinced the intent has nothing to do with any sector.. it’s to periodically disrupt focus.
No idea why..
We tried permanent DST before and it failed utterly. The vote to repeal it was 383-16.
