Stupid DST - The Lyorn's Den

11:10 am - Stupid DST

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

It's freezing again. I slept very badly. If I had a second power outlet in the bathroom, I'd have brought the electrical heater from home weeks ago and plugged it in. Stupid useless DST. I want that hour back. With interest.

I read that in Russia they are going to *stay* on DST now, to spare people the miserable week after switching. Of course, that means that in winter you'd have to wait until, what, half past ten or so for daylight. Jikes.

I mean, what's the fucking *use*? Either our sleep/wakefulness cycles are adjusted to the sun, in which case the whole exercise is completely useless for anything but spreading misery, or we are not, then we could just all get up at 4 in the morning and enjoy the longer days (NOT).

Who ever developed the bright idea that anything lesser than a major tectonic shift could mess around with the length of the day? And yet every year someone with less awareness of time than a stupid mayfly (you live only one day, you'd be a lot more mindful of one hour!) let their metaphors go off the rail into stating these things until they believe it themselves. And everyone gets a miserable week.

Can't agree more. It's not too bad for me getting-up-wise in the morning, but my internal clock gets very confused and every time I look at a clock I'm thinking "what the heck???"
I'm for simply keeping one time - and I would prefer *not* the DST, simply because: the sun should reach it's highest point at noon...
