Brace yourself for a little sleep deprivation

March 12, 2010 @ 17:34 By: gordon Category: General

You’re probably going to lose an hour of sleep this weekend and there’s not much you can do about it. (Well, ok, you can sleep in, but you’re still going to be missing an hour.)

That’s right, Sunday morning at 2am most of North America switches over to Daylight Saving time in a futile attempt to save energy. As I’ve mentioned before, there’s evidence that energy consumption actually increases, as do accident rates in the week after the clocks are set forward.

I wonder if the slow drivers will be driving even slower on the Queensway next week.
