Now, according to wral.com, DST is going to be blamed for sibling rivalry:
Daylight-Saving Causes Twin Arrival Pickle
Cary — Everyone knows the pecking order in a family has everything to do with age. The oldest sibling usually rules the roost. But what if you get cheated out of the title because of Daylight Saving Time?

Peter Sullivan Cirioli was dubbed "Baby A" at WakeMed Cary when he arrived early Sunday morning.

“Yes, Peter was born first, it was at 1:32 a.m.,” mother Laura Cirioli said.

Thirty-four minutes later, Peter's twin sister, Allison Raye Cirioli, known as "Baby B," made her entrance into the world.

Because of Daylight Saving Time, Allison's time of birth was 1:06 a.m., which makes her 26 minutes older than her brother even though he was born first.

I'm telling you, people, DST is just more trouble than it's worth. Elect me President and I will rid our nation of this pox once and for all.

Hat tip to carrie.

Oh, fer cryin' out loud!

People! Think! This is just like leaving the "units" off of your answer in science class.

Peter was born at 1:32am EDT on Nov 6, 2007. Allison was born at 1:06am EST on Nov 6, 2007. Being confused over this is just as bad as if they had been born across midnight.

How about this:

Peter was born at 0532Z, Allison was born at 0606Z. Does that make everyone feel better?

Or:

Peter was born at 1194327120 seconds and Allison was born at 1194329160 seconds since 1/1/1970. End of confusion. (Note that the site I used to perform the conversion didn't have a way to enter the time zone or relevant Daylight Saving Time poo.)
