Ha haa! The hour!

by Suw on October 26, 2003

Have a nice long kip and still be up early!

Although today does of course mark the true beginning of the long, slow slide into winter, the days becoming darker and more dismal until December 21 when I'll have a wee little party to celebrate that the nights are starting to shorten again. I hate winter. If I had the money I'd bugger off to somewhere nice and warm until it was all over. That would be a far superior solution than my current one – a halogen lamp.

Where's my lottery win, eh? Or my Hollywood deal for mid-sixes to sevens?

I like to think of daylight savings time changes as; you get a discount of one hour to make up for the shitty winter weather and you pay an extra hour as a deposit for good weather. It's just this one hour that keeps getting moved back and forth between discount and surcharge, yet we never learn.

I like that desposit/surcharge way of looking at it – yeah, that works for me.

Although I still don't understand why they don't one year just move the clocks by half an hour and leave them alone. After all, these days we have small bits of wire encased in glass to make up for a lack of actual sunshine.

Although I suppose that would just result in millions of computers getting very confused twice a year, which would probably be more hassle than changing the clocks.
