Quote# 27841

You may have noticed that March of this year was particularly hot. As a matter of fact, I understand that it was the hottest March since the beginning of the last century. All of the trees were fully leafed out and legions of bugs and snakes were crawling around during a time in Arkansas when, on a normal year, we might see a snowflake or two. This should come as no surprise to any reasonable person. As you know, Daylight Saving Time started almost a month early this year. You would think that members of Congress would have considered the warming effect that an extra hour of daylight would have on our climate. Or did they ? Perhaps this is another plot by a liberal Congress to make us believe that global warming is a real threat. Perhaps next time there should be serious studies performed before Congress passes laws with such far-reaching effects.

There is STILL only twenty-four hours in a day. Twelve hours of daytime/twelve of night. Congress, no matter how much they want it to be so, cannot add another hour by decree.
FYI: It was Bush's consevative congress which made daylight savings time earlier, and it still has nothing with global warming. . . Moron.

Are they really that dumb in Arkansas?

No. No way. This has to be a joke. No one could be dumb enough to think that DST is anything more than an abstract concept.

No ... surely no-one can be this dumb and use language?

So... why is it still up? The man's answering machine advised people calling to correct his understanding of DST to develop a sense of humor. It was a joke, not a genuine loonie.

So, where can I get my hands on a weather control machine?

No seriously, global warming is a REAL threat. This is NOT the time to be skeptical, unless there's bible-thumping going on.

Oh, right, so now the day's 13 hours instead of 12, so obviously it's getting hotter. Someone inform IPCC that they've overlooked that one crucial factor.

Morbo: DST DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY!!!!!!

Thx Morbo.

Ah, at least it's a joke.

And thus should be removed.

@inmate:

I'm appalled. I'm from Arkansas, and sure, I've seen some idiots, but, this guy takes the cake. Please do not judge all of just because some retard sent in a stupid letter.

Some people are just fundamentally retarted. There's nothing you can do for them.

8/17/2007 12:09:49 PM



Unfortunately, this is not a joke as claimed. Just a moron who wrote something extremely stupid and is now trying to save face by claiming it was a joke all along.

No, it's a joke. It should be deleted from the site. It's...a...JOKE!

8/19/2007 1:58:00 PM

It was a joke, a bit of satire, just google the writer's name and there's a page about this on snopes.

8/20/2007 8:52:06 PM



Funny. We can't help people in the Sahel to end the horrible draught they're suffering. We can't prevent the floodings coming from the monzons and all those tropical storms. Or even Hurrican Dean. But Democrats, God knows how, are able to influence on the climate. They're my heroes.

Yes, because Democrats CONTROL THE SUN with the clever use of clocks. Dumbass.

Satire. No one THAT stupid could write or type.

...Daylight Saving Time doesn't work that way...

Edit: Well, at east it's a relief to see that it's a joke. -_-
