Wow... lots of really angry people commenting about clocks and the government. Must be grumpy.
This isn't the government conspiracy some of you have been seeing. Daylight saving time has been around since... well... it's ancient (try Romans and Greeks!). Then, DST benefited shift workers so that they would have more sun time after they ended their work. Today, it's used to consume energy spent on lighting, heating, gas, etc. when people use it the most- at night. Even with the .5% believed to be saved each year, that's a tremendous amount when you factor in that our world needs all the energy saving tools it can get.
So, please, love up on your Earth and treasure the extra hour of sunlight. And stop blaming the government for your minor sleep problems.
