DST


Remember, kids, today is the only day when time travel is legal. We get to set our clocks back a whole hour at some point today. It's a good thing, too, because I've got a shitload of stuff to do; papers to mark, video games to play, a novel to write. I just have to decide if I'll use my hour for business or pleasure. Good or evil. The power to manipulate time is not something to be taken lightly.

And for gosh's sake, don't use your yearly quantum leap to just sleep an extra hour. Here is a fact: Alexander Graham Bell invented the space shuttle in less than an hour (*). And you want to spend your hour sleeping? Come on.

So what are you going to do with your extra hour?



* (Not actually a fact)

If you had spent that extra hour sleeping like the rest of us, you wouldn't be producing facts that are questionable at best. Wasting that hour on anything other than sleeping is foolhardy. Please keep this in mind for next year: When people stop sleeping in, the terrorists win.

I'm pretty sure I was reading National Geographic in the can.

I went to the gym.
And pretty much spent an hour at the members counter while they tried to fix our membership and the printer for our id card.
Without the extra hour, I really would have left thinking I just wasted time.

Chekov: Sleep is for the weak. Leonardo Da Vinci slept less than an hour a year, and he invented the iPod in addition to being a world champion body builder.

Rouge: I wish I could look at pr0n in my sleep.

m7asdlkfj: That is an electrifying story LOLOLOLOROFL!!!

Limpy: For an hour? That's a long shit.

Sharkboy: That's the beauty of time travel. Wasted time just gets erased from the timeline like it never happened. If only every day was daylight savings day.

I trust no gaming system that uses only 6 sided dice.
