HuffPo – Sunday is going to be a good day for sleeping in. Well, if you’re in an area that observes daylight saving time anyway. Yes, the biannual changing of the clocks is upon us. Many in North America will gain an extra hour when daylight saving ends Nov. 3, and time falls back one hour, meaning you’ll have an extra hour to do whatever you wish this weekend. The change should take place automatically for most with smartphones, laptops and tablets. (Make sure you have the “set automatically” feature enabled in your date and time settings.) But for those using analog watches and non-digital alarm clocks, the switch will take place at 2 a.m. Sunday. So expect your clock to be an hour ahead when you wake up in the morning. (Or you may want to consider preemptively turning the clock back by one hour before bed Sunday.) With the end of the daylight saving, which took effect this year on March 10, participating countries will return to standard time. By shifting the observed time forward in the spring and back in the fall, territories are able to maximize the hours of sunlight available during regular daytime hours.
Oh good. We get to maximize the sunlight during the daytime hours! So when you wake up and drive to work, it’ll still be dark, but if you’re lucky, the sun will be rising and blinding you as you drive around the beltway, making the commute that much more awful. And then when you drive home, the sun will be setting. But at least the farmers will have that extra hour of sunlight to tend to their crops! If you work in an office, especially if you commute on the Metro, you might not see the sun again until Easter. When chicks complain about “seasonable depression”, I almost want to believe it’s a real thing. Almost. I will say it’s a little bit more believable than the mysterious “thyroid problems” that every chick on the planet claims they have the second they give up on life and put on 15 pounds. “It’s not me, it’s my thyroid!” Totally believable, not at all.
Good thing you don’t have to drive anywhere.
all daylight savings does for me is make seem more ok to start drinking earlier
rough day at the stool when you blog shit like this, lets hope it picks up this afternoon
Thyroid is chick code word for ben & jerrys
Fuck, now we have to sleep for an extra hour on Sunday. This is definitely something to complain about.
why are you complaining?? extra hour of sleep before you gotta wake up and go to….oh yeah you blog for a living
Terrible blog, that being said I had 0 clue it was daylight savings time, so thanks
Totally hilarious, not at all.
Almost got hit by a car today… I shut it down and skipped work
After you change your clock, you should probably just go ahead and end your life.
not if you live in non navajo land in arizona
God i hate fat chicks
I heard someone on an Arizona radio station complain about not following the rest of the country on daylight savings. She claimed Arizonans get deprived an hour of sunlight for their flowers as a result.
You suck Nate
Coulda been a blog about an extra hour at the bars on Saturday night, but Nathan wrote something about driving.
Is seasonal depression. You assclown. Only the finest
So this is what we’re doing on Barstool now… blogging about daylight savings time? How about a hot take on how much snow we should expect this winter?
My wife thought she had a thyroid problem. Cost me 10K to find out she didn’t!
Stick to tits Nate. Play your strengths
Seasonal depression is 100% a real thing
When you actually work for a living, you’ll find out seasonal depression exists. You don’t see the sun light for 3-4 months. And you drink heavily once you do get home.
thyroid is chick code for trying to admit they are, in fact, bat-shit crazy and they know it.
Why don’t you turn your clock back 24 years pal
Nate do you even have a window in your moms basement?
A day lights saving blog are you fucking kidding me
Pretty simple…move to So Cal and everything will be alright
Great can’t wait to hear people complain for 2 weeks about how they’re schedule is still screwed up from the time change. It’s one fucking hour. You screw your schedule up if you stay up late on the weekend at a bar, but you don’t complain about it days later.
Unless you’re leaving work at 4, it’ll be dark as fuck when you leave. But probably sun up in morning commute. You suck at blogging and life.
