2004/03/09 Random Rant of the Day
π 2004-03-09 20:07 by Merlin in Public

Current Music: Armin Van Buuren - Sensation White Live - 2003-06-07
Current Mood: A bit tired, probably lost 5 pounds of water :)

Do you care about other people's rants? No? Great, you came to the right place then ;)

So, DST sucks (no, not la "Direction de Surveillance du Territoire", but Daylight Savings Time).
Actually DST is fine, it's regular time that sucks.
Since I biked to work, a logical step after that was to bike home. Ok, it's not like my legs were actually begging for it after an hour of boot camp, but I've managed to do it before, so I could certainly do it again. For that matter, I got home in 23:30 (10km course on the way home), including one red light, which was an average time for me, and decent when just coming out of boot camp (I'm icing up my knee though. Yep, unlike some other people *cough* I do ice up my knee :-D)
But, it's annoying to go home at 19:30 and have everything be pitch black. Daylight savings Time is of course a complete waste of time (no honestly, I don't really care that much about the few farmers who milk their pigs and feed their cows at 05:30 and would rather have daylight out, especially when it means that the 99.9% of the other people have to use up electricity one hour earlier in the evening as a result), but actually I believe we should be on
DST time all year round (as in 19:00 being an hour earlier so that it's still daylight outside).

Sure, you'll tell me that the sun would rise at 07:00 instead of 06:00. So what? Big deal... You should be in bed at that time anyway ;)
