Just Pick A Time!

Seriously, what is wrong with the people of Indiana?! I just read an article saying that the federal government is forcing eight more of Indiana's counties to the central time zone. That means that parts of Indiana are still in the eastern time zone, while other parts are in the central time zone. Why can't the people of Indiana just get together, maybe in the capital (whatever the capital of Indiana is. Probably Indianapolis.) and just sort out what the time is. Listen to the words that are coming out onto your monitors, time is not a toy! You can't just decide to change time to meet your schedule. The people of Indiana need to get their act together and pick a time zone, and stick in it.

Furthermore, why in the Sam Hill do we still have daylight savings time?! If you want to get up at the crack of dawn to do chores or something, get up early. Don't make everyone change their clocks so that dawn is always six a.m.! It throws everyone off twice a year, and cripples the economy. The only reason we have daylight savings time is because Benjamin Franklin wanted to mess with people centuries after he died. There's no other rational explanation. Ol' Ben Franklin was a genius. He predicted the Internet hundreds of years ago, right after he invented electricity. So why is it so hard to believe that he invented daylight savings time (Or "Dumb Stupid Time" as I call it) just for the laughs?

We live in an age of computers and lawn furniture; we don't need daylight savings time anymore. Back in the 19th century, time zones were determined by railroad companies. And we still have them today, not because we still use railroads, but because they work. Indiana needs to get with the program. I have no idea why the railroads left them out; my guess is, there were no train stations in Indiana. But they need to just live within the conventions of time and space. And we need to end the oppression of daylight savings time.

Otherwise, we'll never get to Mars.

I know that, I've said that for years. We all know the perils of metrics, as was professized by the movie "A Few Good Men". In the ending, if you go in slow motion, you can see a billboard with the words "death to metrics" in big red letters.

Don't question it; it's true. Or false. That's the real question.

Did you know that the reasoning behind Clause 5 of Article 2 of the Constitution was because the framers feared a Robot President?

Ah Madison, I hope we clone thee.

We'll get to mars, but would it even be worth it without the lawn furniture?
