Stupid Concepts by Smart Humans

Did you remember to set all your clocks back one hour this morning? Neither did I. But several older electronic devices around the house did adjust their timers.

They didn’t get the memo that our all-powerful Congress had decreed that “daylight savings” time would end a few weeks later than the date encoded in their old programming.

Another example of why computers are not intelligent; they only do what they’re told.

However, “daylight savings” itself is a pretty stupid concept, supposedly conceived by smart humans.

time, daylight, savings

    At least nothing here “fell back”.
