Love this old quote, apocryphal or not:
"When told the reason for daylight saving time the old native American said…
‘Only a white man would believe that you could cut a foot off the top of a blanket and sew it to the bottom of a blanket and have a longer blanket.’"
I don't really have anything against Daylight Saving (except for the curtains fading)
but I associate it with the beginning of summer, which I loathe. It means latest sunset here is about 8:30PM, which is fine.
When I was a kid I looked after the chooks (chickens). I used to let them out of their house when I got home from school. When daylight saving started, they were surprised to be let out "early." They very soon adjusted to the new time, becoming eager to be let out when I arrived. When DS ended, though, I was "late" to let them out, and it was chicken chaos, as they were NOT happy to be cooped up for extra time.
Point being, FWIW, even chickens have an acute sense of "time" by sun position. Sorry, I digress yet again...
