Falling backward

Okay, so it's hard to complain about the extra hour we're gaining as Daylight Saving Time comes to an end, but I'm still not happy about the whole crazy idea. I mean, time is time. You can't change it. When the sun is highest in the sky it's NOON. Not 11:00.

I think it's mean and unhealthy to mess with people's circadian rhythms the way Daylight Saving Time does.

It's a pain in the ass. And what's the advantage? Who does it profit??? For what greater good are millions of people forced to go around sleepy and cranky every Spring?

I used to think Daylight Saving Time was put into place to help farmers, but I've learned that's not true. Daylight Saving Time was put into place for the simple, selfish reason of giving us more evening hours of light in the warm months. This was meant to allow for more daylight leisure activities. But does that one hour really make that much difference? And is it really worth all the trouble it causes?

Personally I love a lovely summer night. I like to look up at the summer stars - and I'd like to be able to see them before 10:00 or 11:00 PM.

My point is, Daylight Saving Time is not natural and it doesn't seem to have much advantage. So Why? WHY?
