  • So this past Sunday, the clocks jumped ahead an hour.

  • We all lost the hour sleep.

  • Daylight savings time is now in effect.

  • It happens every year at this time, of course.

  • We do not question it, we just change the clocks.

  • And so the day after, I'm walking around,

  • I'm in a bad mood 'cause I didn't get enough sleep,

  • and I'm mumbling to myself: daylight savings time is stupid.

  • Now I admit this was not based on any evidence,

  • this was just me being grumpy.

  • But then I did something that's very dangerous: I googled.

  • Turns out there are a group of like-minded geniuses out there

  • who have the exact same opinion as I do.

  • They believe daylight savings time is very bad idea

  • for a bunch of reasons.

  • The least of which is it drives children berserk.

  • True thing.

  • Also, in the 48 hours after the clocks go ahead -

  • Men keel over in droves with heart attacks.

  • Not that men need a lot of excuses to have heart attacks,

  • but still the data is very troubling.

  • Also, car accidents go through the roof,

  • which makes perfect sense.

  • The Monday after the clocks go ahead

  • the roads are suddenly filled with people

  • who are late for work, in a bad mood and half asleep.

  • Call this what it is.

  • It's not daylight savings time, it's a population cull.

  • And it should stop now.

  • And in the fall, when the clocks go back, that's even deadlier.

  • Although when that happens we gain an hour's sleep,

  • so that one I can live with.

So this past Sunday, the clocks jumped ahead an hour.
