Cher was a big critic of Daylight Saving Time as evidenced by her song, "If I Could Turn Back Time"...

You would think but the Dems have been borrowing for the Daylight Savings Trust Fund to expose Trump's shenanigans. A lot of Trump supporting seniors are mighty worried they'll run out of daylight before they die.

Would the admins please stop greening this drivel?  If it is a Farker's blog then put the Plug tag on it so everyone else can see you were coerced into pushing this crap onto the masses.

I'd sue Fark under false labeling laws for using the AMUSING tag for this, but considering the current
administration's stance on consumer protection, I may as well not bother.

But this is my favorite DST story:  Sometime in the 1920s, during the chaos that followed the Communist
Revolution in Russia, the country went forward for DST but never went back.  The following year, with
things calmed down, Stalin refused to acknowledge the mistake from the previous year and resumed the
going forward and back, but Soviet Standard Time was always 1 hour ahead of the time in the rest of the
world until the fall of the USSR.

It did get a laugh out of me this time, the one about the reduction of crime, because of what proceeded it.

You should use Farkback, where an admin will actually see it.
