    I’m in Indiana, unfortunately, but we didn’t have daylight savings until 2006 and starting DST fucking SUCKED. I much preferred not worrying about switching my clocks around and the like.

    The idea for Daylight Saving was initially proposed by Postal worker from New Zealand, who wanted the extra light after work to collect insects. His idea wad published by the British Philosophical Society, and various governments took it from there.

    Why does it have to be daylight until the middle of the night? Why do parents have to struggle to get their kids in bed at 9pm because it’s still light outside? My home is New Orleans, but I refuse to acknowledge daylight savings time. Admittedly, I probably couldn’t get away with it anywhere else, except Arizona.
