Proof Daylight Saving Time Is Dumb, Dangerous, and Costly

Daylight saving time is stupid...but only when we spring forward. That extra hour to sleep in we get in the fall is awesome.

The case for daylight saving time has been shaky for a while. The biannual time change was originally implemented to save energy. Yet dozens of studies around the world have found that changing the clocks has either minuscule or non-existent effects on energy use. After Indiana finally implemented daylight saving, something that didn't happen until 2006, residents actually used more electricity.
