A New Day

Couldn't stand it anymore!
Downloaded, filled out, and mailed off to Supervisor of Elections a form changing my political affiliation to the Republican Party.
Don't want to spend the NEXT four years ashamed, and worried people might discover that I was a democrat.

Dry Fucked AGAIN!

And so, once again, that UGLY hussein obama gets to dry fuck this country in the ass for four more years.

And for another four years, whenever I watch the news, I'll have to keep the remote in hand to immediately change the station when his disgusting face comes on so I won't vomit up everything I had to eat that day.

And for all of you who voted for him, just remember (to paraphrase) - "You'll pay for what you get."

Spring Forward, Fall Back

(I know I posted a similar blog back when we changed from EST to DST, but here it is anyway.)

Or Eastern Standard Time versus Daylight Savings Time

And so, once again we adjust our clocks for no logical reason that I can understand.

But since that is beyond my control, I'm here to dispel a common misconception -- that we gain or lose an hour of sleep with the change.

Let's start with "Spring Forward."

Just for the sake of argument, let's say you go to bed every night at 10 and get up every morning at 6 -- 8 hours of sleep every night. So on the night of Spring Forward, you go to bed at 10, get up at 6, and then move the clocks a head one hour. You STILL get 8 hours of sleep.

But when you go to bed at 10 that night, it just means that you have been awake for 15 hours instead of 16.  So in actuality, you lose one hour of awake time.

Which then means when you "Fall Back" you are awake for 17 hours instead of 16, and still do not lose any sleep.

I guess the only exception would be if you move your alarm clock ahead  before  you go to bed and get up when it goes off at the "normal" time. But since this is done on the weekend, I don't why you would set an alarm clock (unless you have to be somewhere early in the morning).

But if you are a farmer or rancher, you will still be getting up at daybreak regardless of what the clock says since animals don't care about the time, just the sun.

And since so many of our clocks are digital, in the Fall you are really moving the clocks ahead 23 hours.

That's all.
