March Madness with the Hooters

March 15, 2008

The big underdogs, known as the Temple Owls, surprised everybody this season by coming from behind and capturing the A-10 championship from St. Joe’s. They advance to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2001. Time for the big show baby!

Ah, the auction I’m bidding on is almost over. Looks like I’m still the high bidder. Can’t wait till we’ll meet again like we did last summer; when you smacked me in the face and broke my glasses, eh Carly…

The Daylight Savings Time Warp

March 5, 2008

You know it’s coming and there’s no way to avoid it.

This weekend it’s time to…

daylight savings time

I am so excited (sense the sarcasm). You know why? Well, I’ll tell you why…

There was a recent study I read about the fact that Daylight Savings Time is actually costing consumers more money. That’s right, it’s certainly not saving your pocketbook baby. In fact, it costs the average consumer an extra $3.19 in utility bills per year to be exact.

Did he just say $3.19?

Yes, I did numbnuts. I know it’s not that much, but GD-it, it’s principal we’re dealing with here! Is it not the purpose of Daylight Savings Time to save daylight and thus save energy in the meantime? You’d think so, but apparently it’s not.

According to the study (which was conducted in Indiana) it calculated that the shift costs that state alone an extra $8.6 MILLION in electricity bills. Looks like that little $3.19 isn’t so innocent sounding after all is it? And this is just in Indiana for cryin’ out loud. Think about it on a grand scale and that’s a lot o’ energy being expended. Maybe Chavez is on to something here.

“…and if we attack Columbia by 0700 hours, we’ll even save a few minutes more!”

But, this isn’t the first time the logic of Daylight Saving Time has been criticized. The National Bureau of Standards found that there was no significant energy savings way back in 1976; three years after DST went into effect for the first time.

And, this country’s grand idea of expanding DST to a few extra weeks was also revealed to have saved no energy whatsoever. So just what exactly are we saving then??

vertigoYeah, this is kinda like what the whole DST thing does to our sense of reasoning.
