DayLight Saving Time

There are many arguments concerning the advantages and disadvantages of Daylight Saving Time. I'll not endorse any here, for I simply do not care. Whether the sun appears to rise an hour early or late one day is not a bother, just as long as the thing doesn't go out or shift direction. But if we must have this biannual clock changing ritual I suggest a different method.

     We change the clocks around the house and always forget to change one, which will be the one we look at when figuring out if there is enough time before an appointment to eat lunch/take a shower/chase the cat or what-have-you, then later look at a corrected clock and scream "I didn't think it was that late!" Rather than shift the day by one hour I suggest moving it only by 15 minutes a weekend. In that four week period of incremental advancement or decreasement, depending on the demands of the time of year, one can slowly adjust to the temporal changes. Plus, if one does consult a timepiece that has not been changed then it will be no big deal; it's only 15 minutes difference.

     Or we could just do it in the way of our primitive ancestors and build stone or wood monuments and through careful observation to the placement of the sun's rays determine that "oh, guess it's time to set the henge ahead an hour."
