Why Is Daylight Saving Time Still A Thing? ‘Last Week Tonight With John Oliver’ Investigates.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver has asked “how is this still a thing?” regarding the Miss America Pageant and Sports Illustrated‘s Swimsuit Issue. Now they pose the question about the infuriating reason we all had to reprogram the clocks on our microwaves while groggy from one less hour of sleep: f*cking daylight saving time. What good is this? Who benefits? Some people would say it’s for the farmers, but Last Week Tonight is here to point out that it doesn’t benefit them, either. And more importantly, cows are morons.

Last Week Tonight also delved into the history of daylight savings, teaching us who to thank for our fatigue this morning: Kaiser Wilhelm and his little arm. That’s right, we can blame the Germans for the increase in car accidents, workplace injuries, and heart attacks this week.

If we’re going to be stuck with this stupid tradition, can we at least follow the suggestion below to make it a little more convenient for ourselves? This is America, damn it!
