    Daylight Savings Time Ends...

    On Sunday, November 6th. I have lights but still dislike the day every year!

    I say axe it altogether. This little video sums it up nicely.

    I thought that was Randall and he was going to go off on a rant about the honey badger not giving a $hit about daylight savings time

    Agreed! Although, I dislike regular time a whole lot less since I got my Amoebas. After a handful of night rides already this fall, I have to admit that I'm pretty stoked to be in night riding season again. It's really nice to be able to count on having the trails to ourselves and not worry about running into hikers (except when you run into a pagan sacrifice like we did a few weeks ago in CMSP )

    I say we tilt the earth on its axis so that we're back to having 14 hours of daylight.

    Loosing an hour of light in the winter sucks and is stupid. Didn't we almost go permanently to to DST last year? But of course it was voted down.

    Nothing is lost... it just gets "transferred" to the morning. Agreed it's all kinda dumb... but hell - there are things that are dumber.
