daylight savings time

They switched off Daylight Savings Time yesterday, setting our clocks one hour back. It’s amazing to see how cellphones, computers and any other centralized time-telling device suddenly goes back in time as if nothing changed. The inhabitants of 2026 Willowtree Towers, however, spent the extra hour earned quite wisely, sitting with friends on their totally awesome futon, eating a rather late dinner, discussing the implications of the extra hour:

Somebody: “You know, now I can study for one more hour”
Otherbody: “You know, now I can sleep for one more hour”
