At 2 a.m. local time Sunday, standard time returned. That means clocks should have been set back an hour.I've been trying to get the word out that DST kills since 2005. Get the word out. Join the revolution.
It also means that pedestrians walking around dusk are now nearly three times more likely to be struck and killed by cars than before the time change, the researchers calculate.
Ending daylight saving time translates into about 37 more U.S. pedestrian deaths around 6 p.m. in November compared to October, the professors report.
Today is Election Day in the United States. Go vote for candidates that are anti-DST, anti-histamine, and pro-Fair Tax. If you don't have any candidates that meet those requirements on your ballot, write my name in. I was planning on having an official looking release this weekend about my Presidential candidacy, but it's been really busy over here. Hopefully in the next few days, I'll be able to get something together.
But for now, feel free to write me in for any of the positions you vote for today.
