Another Reason To Ditch Daylight Saving Time #1LinerWeds

Hopefully they’re not going to be fighting over it for the rest of their lives.

ABC News has a story about a set of twins born to a Massachusetts couple, Emily and Seth Peterson. The older of the boys, Samuel, was born at 1:39 AM on November 6, and Ronan, the younger, was born 31 minutes later. Normally, this wouldn’t be a problem, except Daylight Saving Time officially ended at 2 AM on November 6, and since Ronan’s birth happened ten minutes after the clocks changed, his birth was recorded at 1:10 AM. So, even though Samuel exited his mother’s womb before Ronan, as far as the records are concerned Ronan is the older twin.

    1. Daylight Saving Time is silly. The rationale we were given for expanding it was that it would save energy, but it doesn't. All it's good for is disrupting circadian rhythms.
