Public Service Announcement #18

This is a reminder for some of us (most of us in North America) that Daylight saving time returns on Sunday, March 10, 2013.


[via]

So set your clocks ahead one hour before you go to bed.

Spring forward, Bitches!

I have no idea when or if Daylight saving time affects the rest of you in other parts of the world but here's a handy international chart if you need it.

This has been an Infomaniac Public Service Announcement.

  1. Ach, it feels so good. I want to thank my parents, who made me a part time insomniac - and of course all the lousy companies I had the privilege to work for through the nights of my life - thank you basteds.

    That daylightsaving thingy was invented in WWI, re-introduced in WWII - and I can say that I hate it with every fibre of my rotten heart. Decennia ago I deceided to live by and follow my own time pattern; guess it works.

  2. Blame the Germans!

    "Daylight Saving Time was first adopted to replace artificial lighting so they could save fuel for the war effort in Germany during World War I."

    Oh, Guten Abend, Herr Mago.

    1. If you want to pretend you’re Canadian, you’ll need this.

      Nighty night, Miss Scarlet.

    2. Gute Nacht MsScarlet.

      Do you guess that two bottles of Silvaner the evening would make an equivalent to this trout-beer-unwashed-combo Mistress?

    4. Miss Scarlet, I distinctly recall ordering you to bed over half an hour ago.

      Would you like me to read aloud from "Enid Blyton's Bedtime Stories?"

    1. JON: Sadly, you are correct.

      Sadder yet (or perhaps ignorance really is bliss,) many North Americans don’t realize it.

    1. It's called Pilgerschritt, two ahead, one back, what they do in Echternach.

    2. MISTRESS MADDIE: Do not attempt to perform the dance from Mago’s link until you’ve had your fill of infused gin.
