Daylight savings time will soon be starting again. I'm against it, personally. But then, I'm a night person. But I don't see why it's such a big deal that the sun goes down a little later. It's not as though the day is any longer...it's still 24 hours long. It's only our perception that changes. Honestly I think it's a little weird for the sun to still be shining at 9PM in the middle of the summer.
So why not try for a happy medium? Instead of setting the clocks forward an hour, why not just set them forward a half hour and leave them there forever? Then the sun won't be out too late in the summer and it won't set too early in the winter. This is a genius idea and I don't know why nobody ever thought of it before.
But it's not going to work unless we get the whole country on board. That's only like 350 million people. Should be a piece of cake. Cheers.
