    Cut the top off the blanket and sew it on the bottom so it will be longer. Damn foolishness. If you want to get up earlier, just do it! Leave the clocks alone.

    Especially that. If you don't reset the clocks in the smoke detectors then they will go off an hour after the fire starts. (Or is it an hour before the fire starts, I can't remember.)

    Just wake up at the same time you normally would and go to work, or wherever you have to go. And if nobody is there you arrived an hour early. Wait an hour. You'll be on time.

    Same here. I don't know why we keep perpetuating such a silly thing. I was looking forward to the sun rising earlier.
    This is super seriously.

    When I set my alarm clock five minutes fast, as soon as it goes off I know there's another five minutes to sleep.

    It kicks butt when you are working during the time change. I get paid an hour of OT for an hour I didn't work and get to go home earlier. WHOOOO HOOOOO!!

    Actually No. They pay us for 13 hrs in the fall. So its still good. We have five crews so it's hit or miss if you get the good end of the deal or not. But this time it was my turn.
