Does anybody really know what time it is?

So this morning at 2:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time reverted to Pacific Standard Time.

Now let’s just stay there.

I have spent 50 years explaining to people that this time shift is idiotic and accomplishes nothing good, and it seems the populace is finally beginning to understand. There is a large segment of it even here in BC who want it ended. So much so that our incompetent legislature just passed some unnecessary law that will make the end of changing easier. They don’t know what they’re doing of course, and this is proven by the fact they think the switch should be to permanent DST! They aren’t doing it now, of course, because we don’t have a leader; he wants to wait until the neighboring (north/south) areas do it first. Never take the initiative when you can go along with the sheep, right? Some pathetic excuse about it being too confusing to be out of sync with other time zones. Like the rest of Canada or the rest of the world. I guess it’s irrelevant on the longitude and only matters on the latitude. No, he’s just stupid. So we’ve switched again and probably will do so in the Spring and then maybe again and again and again.

Despite the fact Sandford Fleming was Canadian.

Despite the fact noon is when the sun is directly overhead (ask any sundial).

Despite the fact there is a large body of scientific data demonstrating that DST, and not just the biannual time shift, is harmful.

Yeah, let’s do it wrong shall we? What else can you expect from government?

Anyway here’s a picture of a Piper PA-31 plane I took the other day. I’m including it for no particular reason. That seems to be the rationale behind everything these days.
