Clockfuckery day

Another clockfuckery day has come and gone. Like Donald Trump, daylight saving time started as a joke, but our political system somehow ended up taking it seriously.

While DST is obviously stupid, regular time zones are pretty annoying too. I’m not the first person to have considered switching to UTC and being done with them. This year the Washington Post discussed the idea as proposed by an economist and astronomer.

Unfortunately, Hanke and Henry have attached their UTC proposal to a far less reasonable proposed new calendar. If we are going to change calendar, I think the one used by Kodak until 1989, known as the International Fixed Calendar, makes a lot more sense.
