Is the US the only place that changes the clocks twice a year? Or does the whole world do this? This is the silliest practice I’ve ever seen and wonder every time this happens, just whose brainchild this brilliant idea was.
Why can’t we just leave the clocks alone? I can see no benefit whatsoever in changing the time on us like this. I think the intention originally meant to help the farmers in some way by saving daylight. Now can anyone tell me how it helps the farmers, or anyone for that matter? I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this does not save daylight, or energy.
We either are using more light in the morning, or at night, so where is the benefit? There is no energy savings and I challenge anyone to explain to me where it is. When we get up in the dark, naturally, we have to turn the lights on to get our act together in the morning. At night, if it’s dark, we have to use lights to cook our evening meals. How does this save electricity? I’m open-minded. Thus, I would love someone to explain the science behind all this. If there are no benefits, why do we do it? It’s a shock to our natural system. It would be nice to know we’re getting shocked for a good cause. If there’s no good cause, let’s stop it already!
On a positive note, I have an extra hour to write tonight, but then come spring it's pay- back time, isn't it, when they play with the clocks again. As they say, there is a price for everything. This is still one of my pet peeves and I don't think I'm alone.
