Cutting off some and sewing it on the other end actually makes it
SHORTER. Perhaps that's what you want.
It's only the nonsense about changing the measurement changing the

Humanity currently occupies a small part of this planet (which it has
only very limited control over), which is itself an extremely small
part of our universe. Human beings have been around for a small part
of the amount of time out universe has existed. Then, how would you
know this universe is the only one?
It's a comment about the increasing anti-intellectual qualities found
in too many people.
Could your news program be quoting sigs when it shouldn't?
Depends on the sharpness of the cut and the stitch used. DST uses
very sharp scissors.
It doesn't change time, only our perception of it, which is all
that it was ever designed to do.
Denial is a powerful thing.
How much of the "this planet" - "small part" gives a rats ass about
DST? That "small part" does care.
...not to mention the look-down-the-nose attitude of the academic
BTW, the SNL skit was a take-off on the UNCF slogan.
Nope. You're including stuff at the end that you didn't snip.
Here is what I snipped (you'll note that it did snip your sig):

"A mind is a terrible thing to have..." :-)
I rathewr like it. If you're living in the south, I can
understand. For those of thus in the North, the time shift is
rather nice. Who wants it light at 3:00AM? Don't like it? Move
to AZ where it's not needed.
The bride got me this year. I did not turn down the hot water t-stat
in the spring/summer. Waiting for her now to tell me the hot water is
too cold <grin>.

They do now! I drive SB and start pickup at 7AM. I have to turn the dome
lights on inside the bus so the kids can find a seat. Looks like next year
I'll be unloading at the school in the dark too. Ugh!
And are unable to go to bed earlier, and get up when it's light.
Of course, EITHER "DST forever" or "DST never" would be much
preferable to the current situation. The amount of daylight is
determined by the heath's rotation and axial tilt, not governments and
stupid mind games.
But governments and businesses determine time. By your "logic" we
should get rid of time zones altogether and just go bay local solar
time; not a good idea.
Stop whining and set the clocks Saturday night.
The sun does not tell you what time to be at work or school nor does it
penalize you for being late. Farmers, burglars, and a handful of other
professions govern their lives by the comings and goings of Old Man Sol; for
the rest of us, we're at the mercy of a mechanism.
That the mechanism can be adjusted is a boon.
A mechanism that could control time may seem useful when you've just
had an accident and wish you could back up a few minutes and do things
differently. Of course, this fails to coincide with reality.
A world where governments and/or businesses and/or clocks could
control time would be a very different world from the one we live in.
