I see the EU has failed to do away with the archaic ritual of fiddling with the clocks for yet another year.
Psst, did you hear, daylight savings time was created by commies who hate the single market. Pass it on…
(You know, it’s worth a try.)
No, they do not, they fools. How hard can it be?
What worries me most about it is that there is obviously a majority among most EU countries, to get an agreement where we have summer time all year round, which to me is wrong.
There is only one real time, and it is natural time, which is based on our planet turning around, the sun rising and the sun going down, we can not change that, it is the cycle of life.
If we follow summer time all year round, we disturb nature and the animals in it, at worst, killing them, and I do not think that is right.
Just as we humans want to be free, the rest of this world's beings are probably also entitled to it.
I believe we must follow the natural ecosystem, otherwise we will continue to destroy this planet.
For whoever reads that, I live strongly shifted (towards night), so I don't judge that. Just, I feel it more right to be centered closer to the mid-day (even if we happen to be ourselves shifted from the society schedules ;)
@firstname.lastname@example.org i don't know what you mean with created here, but if you mean "first used by", then this is just wrong. it was introduced as a war effort by the german empire & austria-hungary.
if you mean "first discussed" then that would be Benjamin Franklin.
@Johann150 (So to explain the – funny in my mind – joke: the only thing the EU really cares about is the single market and it’s mostly a neoliberal institution so, if they thought it was created by commies who hate their baby, they might actually abolish it.)
@aral Standard time is called that for a reason, because it’s supposed to be the standard. Especially around this part of the world, it doesn’t need to — and shouldn’t — be light outside at 9-9:30 at night. Your body wants to wind down and prepare for sleep, meanwhile that completely messes with your circadian rhythms.
I can’t believe we’re still using a pointless creation and exercise from WW1.
That war is over, right? 🙄
