25 seconds in and already this video is WRONG. The chart would make it appear that there are 10 daytime hours (and thus 14 nighttime hours) per day. This may be true at some latitudes at certain parts of the year, but it's certainly not always nor is it mostly true. Also, it`s highly doubtful anyone would be driving through those 4 reservations straight through as the video suggests, and even if someone was to, they would have zero need to change their clock during the journey. If you fly from Chicago to Abu Dhabi you don`t sit and change your clock to match each time zone you`re flying above, unless you`re into that sort of this.

all I know is I end up working the extra hour and not getting paid. It's an antiquated idea that really has no part in society anymore. I say we build a wall to keep it out. It doesn`t belong. In fact, lets propose a constitutional amendment to ban it from getting married. yeah yeah. or we could just get rid of it.

The perceived need to go back to standard time every fall is based on little more than tradition: "This is how it was done when Sir Sanford Fleming invented Standard Time, dammit, and that's what we go back to." During the so-called energy crisis, DST was enacted for the whole year in America, and many countries followed suit; I can`t imagine what problems this would cause. If we simply adopted DST as our standard time, I, for one, wouldn`t have to ride my motorbike home in the dark next month, and the ski industry might save on night-lighting. Where`s the harm in that?
