Daylight Savings in the News

In late October, many clocks are set back one hour to compensate for fewer hours of sunlight, ending “Daylight Savings”.

Desired effects:
•  Help farmers
•  Conserve energy
•  Boost the economy
•  Screw up your work schedule
•  Terrorize local roosters

Plan Your Savings

Savings account: A bank account that pays interest. Open one today and receive a free mug.

Life Savings: With 0.001% annual interest on your new account, retire comfortably by 3030. At least you got a free mug.

What to do with your extra hour:

Go to work early. No one will notice or care. Just like every day, right?

Make love. Then enjoy a nap for 59 minutes.

Nothing. Wasting an hour is more fun than saving one.
