My favorite holiday

My favorite holiday is Daylight Saving Time. Those naysayers at Wikipedia say this:
[Daylight Saving Time] clock shifts present other challenges. They complicate timekeeping, and can disrupt meetings, travel, billing, recordkeeping, medical devices, heavy equipment,[15] and sleep patterns.[16] Software can often adjust computer clocks automatically, but this can be limited and error-prone, particularly when DST protocols are changed.[17]
Obviously, they're shut ins with Vitamin D deficiencies.

Come Monday, even after 5pm, there's still at least 90 minutes of sun. Why would anyone object to that by saying that meetings and heavy equipment are disrupted?

In other news, I got glasses. According to the optometrist, my vision is 20/100. Apparently, I was very good at squinting. I went for a ride yesterday with glasses on and the ground seemed much closer and my bike smaller. This is unlike when I've ridden with sunglasses, when the ground felt very distant and my bike huge.

Oh. Glasses. Look into contacts, at least for rainy days. Glasses are horrid in the rain.

Good comparison, nicely stated facts. I was aware of the fact but not in this much detailed way.
