Fall Back - Change Your Clocks!

Recommended Posts

If you live in the USA..don't forget to take part in the ridiculous ritual of changing clocks back an hour tonight.

Spring Forward

Fall Back

2 am Sunday will now be 1am!  My question is..do the bars stay open an hour longer because closing time is usually 2am?

Honestly, what is this whole time change thing all about anyway?  I guess its just another way for the Government to say, We control you and  time too.

Shifting the Clocks is Bad for Us

A growing body of research indicates that switching the clocks back or forward can have adverse health effects, by disrupting our sleep patterns and leading to short-term sleep deprivation. For instance, a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that the incidence of heart attacks is significantly higher for the first three days after the transition to daylight saving time in the spring. Risk of heart attack was also higher on the first weekday following the transition out of daylight saving time in the fall. A study published last year corroborated this find, revealing a 21-25% jump in heart attack incidence on the first workday after switching the clocks.

It's stupid. They should set the clocks a half hour between the two and leave it there.
