Waking up and it's still pitch black out, no thanks

my body seems to have actually synched to the clock... as of the beginning of last week. I was waking up like clockwork at 7am every day when I was on my mini-vacation
this morning sucked

ugh, I guess this isn't the same everywhere but having to get up while it's still dark is the most depressing shit (and I really don't get up that early for someone who has kids that I have to get to school) and I find that the couple of weeks following the time change to generally be the most difficult of the whole year for me

Move the shit back to April. We'll be in line with the rest of the world's time changes, the mornings won't be as dark, and the afternoon delight crowd will still get their sweet extra hour of golden rays.

Something I never knew until today: under the Wilson government, the UK adhered to GMT+1 from March 1968 to October 1971. In Dec 1970 the Commons voted decisively to end the experiment and we went back to the GMT/BST split the following autumn. During the first two winters, road traffic accidents increased in the mornings, but greatly decreased in the evenings. However, this coincided with stronger drink-driving legislation (and the introduction of the road-side breathalyser), which may have had more of an impact.

The thing I'm proudest of Dubya for doing as president is lengthening the period of time the US is under DST each year.

It was the worst thing he ever did.
