Daylight Savings Time

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

Postby Madison » Sat Oct 29, 2005 3:26 am

Even with technology where it's at, I still hate having to go around the house and reset the times on everything that doesn't automatically reset for daylight savings time.

Ah well, an extra hour is an extra hour though. :-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Did you know that Benjamin Franklin came up with this idea?

He also invented Bifocal glasses, the catheter, the Franklin stove, the glass harmonica, the lightning rod and the odometer. He also discovered electricity, set up the first ever fire department, the first ever fire insurance company, charted the gulf stream and is credited with the first ever political cartoon (so he probably would have been banned from the Cafe).

He is one of the most brilliant people in history. Right up there with Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Edison and Wayne Gretzky.


He was also an inveterate womanizer, the most arrogant man in Philly, and a giant jerk.

Not to take away from what he did, but man, was he a jerk.
