Farmers are Selfish Assholes

Daylight savings time is a crock of shit. Always has been. I know it gives you an extra hour in the fall so we get the always fun "Hour That Doesn't Count" but that isn't worth it. Now when I get out of work it's dark. Is the government trying to make me kill myself? Seriously, as if work weren't depressing enough already now when I leave it's night time so I never really get to be out in the sun. I guess this whole travishamockery was started to give the farmers extra time with their crops but I'm not buying it. What does it matter if they work from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. instead of 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. I guess farmers are just so fucking proud of themselves they can't bear the thought being considered lazy because they screw their livestock at 7 instead of at 6 in the morning. Furthermore daylight savings time just goes to prove that time is completely artificial and we can manipulate however we want. Here's a better idea: The hours from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (during the week) are only 30 minutes long and 5-6 is is a 300 minute extravaganza. Now that would be one kick ass Happy Hour. Why don't we do this? It makes as much sense as moving the clocks around for the precious, precious farmers. Did you know some states don't even recognize daylight savings time? Yes, Arizona, the eastern timezone of Indiana, and Hawaii tell the government where they can shove their little clock-tampering scheme. And the final, and main, reason daylight savings time sucks is because it fucks with the clock on my computer and even though I fix it, it resets itself over night. So naturally I forget about it and then I look at the clock and it says 11 a.m. and I'm like, "sweet, this day is flying by" but then I realize that its only 10 and I am thrown into a blind rage and I punched that guy in the throat that one time and now I have to go to sensitivity training all because farmers are selfish assholes.

Bro, you got it backwards, DST is to make it so it's light when you get out of work, hence getting up an hour of sun earlier.
