Daylight saving time

Filed under: Personal — Tags: , , , , , , — . @ 6:45 am

Or whatever it is called.
The summer, according to the government is officially over this Saturday. And me still not taking my raincoat and umbrella out of storage. People are still walking in short clothes, the beaches are still full, and some stupid coalition deal, is going to kill an hour of every day from now till march.
Just to give you an idea. The sun now sets at about 7pm. That gives me an hour of daylight after I leave work on a good day. Once they move the clock, the sun will set at 6. and then earlier and earlier, until by mid winter it will set around 5.
Think about it. 5pm. That is what normal people call “Afternoon”. Not night. If anyone had ANY sense, they’d either leave the bloody clock alone, or move the time an hour back, to leave us some daylight at the end of the day.
Who on earth was meant to leave work at night time? Look at the Scandinavians: they have no choice in the matter, true, but those guys are jumping off buildings like lemmings. People were not meant to live in the dark. We are not dwarves.
I say, enough with this madness.

Today, your multimedia spectacular is a Nina Simone version of an old classic. Take a moment and enjoy this, in honor of our friend, that we will all miss soon…

Let the sunshine in.

  1. From what I remember of some earlier post, your office has a view to the outside world (a construction plant, but that didn’t seeem to disturb you). So you’re seeing the sun all day…

  2. What does one thing have to do with the other?
    1st off, the view you saw is not from my office, it was a pic to demonstrate seeing the outside world. I let your comment slide that time…
    2nd, what you see from the office has nothing to do with the psychological effect you have when you leave work and it’s dark outside. There are actual studies that this leads to depression.
    and last, this stupid, depressing move, that costs our economy many millions too (Lights on earlier, blah blah) is done to indulge a small minority. It is just so wrong, on so many levels, aside from my personal preferences.
    It’s just not the same, coming out at the end of the day, and the world being dark. Go see “Dark City” on DVD and tell me how that film made you feel.

  3. I was, as usual, being a prick just for the fun of it.
    The truth is – I agree with you wholeheartedly.
