Once a year, it is possible to take a five minutes break that last more than an hour, it is the night many countries turn forward the clocks (Daylight saving time DST) one whole hour.
I like the Daylight Saving Time, days, mostly because the strange feeling, that the clock that normally dictates time with no mercy, suddenly acts differently and magically skip an hour, until the autumn clock make it double strange by skipping an hour back.
Originally the concept was thought to save energy, and was implemented many places around the energy crises in the nineteen-seventies, as it would be daylight for an hour longer in the evening, and so people would use less electrical lightning, but other experts say it means more to the amount of outdoor activities we do, our health, and even shopping patterns. Others have tried to estimated the amount of loss due to the turbulence when confused people show up at the wrong places at the wrong time.
(Just updated the text, first version was wrong, now it is right, and I just lost two hours… In spring it is an hour forward, of-course… have to turn the clock forward… so much for that break… bet I am not the only one 🙂
