Suggestion : Start Daylight Savings Time At Lunch On Monday

Daylight Savings Time chopped one hour off the weekend in the US, and to make matters worse, the Japan quake lopped off another 1.8 microseconds.

The massive earthquake that struck northeast Japan Friday (March 11) has shortened the length Earth’s day by a fraction and shifted how the planet’s mass is distributed.
A new analysis of the 8.9-magnitude earthquake in Japan has found that the intense temblor has accelerated Earth’s spin, shortening the length of the 24-hour day by 1.8 microseconds, according to geophysicist Richard Gross at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.

    I wrote my Florida congressman, both R and D, about if the government had done any studies on the so called “energy saving” effects of starting and ending the time change earlier. I was shocked that I got no reply. 😮

  2. 1.8 microseconds….

    Was that peer reviewed?

    ;O)

    Hey boss, I’m sorry that I was 1.8 millionth of a second late today. My clock was messed up because of the earthquake.
