Someone one my facebook page told the story about an army general trying to
explain daylight savings time to the chief of the Apache Indian tribe. When he
finished with his explanation he asked the chief what he thought. The old indian
thought for a moment and said "Only the government would think that to cut off the
top of a blanket and sew it on to the bottom would make it a longer blanket."
And that pretty much sums it up for me.
But yet the State of Arizona doesn't observe DayLight Savings Time, but the indian reservations do.
I visited there back in 2000 and never was sure what time it was.
That's a good one michael. It's kind of like that opposite side of the street parking deal.
yep. Or like paying someone for a job and then at the end of the year, taking a big percentage of that pay back from them. I forget what that's called. Oh yeah, Income taxes.
That did have something to do with it.
When you spring forward, you land on your face. When you fall backward you land on your ass.
I like Autumn better.
slim, for some of us, well, at least for me, when I spring forward it's more of a push that propels me a couple inches closer to getting out of bed. No landing at all just a slight movement of the blankets.
I used to have a boss who was absolutely convinced that the entire universe resets it's clock twice a year to coincide with our country's little time-saving concept.
Christ on a Bike, she was stupid. She totally believed ANYTHING her superiors told her.
Back when they started DST in Michigan.....I'm thinking it was the late 1960s or early 1970s, the local TV station interviewed a farmer, who said he didn't like it.....his crops needed that extra hour of sunlight!
The world is full of strange and wonderful people.
And I am grateful.
Bless their hearts.
I'm glad that you all appreciate me.
