Daylight savings time is one of the worst ideas ever. If being an hour ahead is so awesome, why stop doing it in the winter?

It was originally implemented for farming cycles.

It's not like farmers haven't been going by the exact time of sunrise and sunset anyway, we've had almanacs forever.

A little misleading but still interesting. Heart attacks in people who are already sleep deprived increase after daylight savings. It seems like a small caveat but it does make a difference. People who are already getting enough sleep or don't have existing health problems don't all of a sudden start having heart attacks because they lost an hour of sleep. People who do have pre-existing conditions or already are not getting enough sleep however will very much feel the effects of that lost hour.

Does that count as a saving?

Weird, one of our acquaintances had a heart attack that Sunday.
