Daylight Saving Time is good for one thing: fostering community among co-workers who come in on Monday to get nothing done besides complaining about Daylight Saving Time. On Last Week Tonight, John Oliver examined the real reason we all give up an hour of sleep: fuel conservation for energy-starved Germans during World War I. I guess it worked out so well that Germany's enemies adopted it after making her sign the Versailles Treaty, guaranteeing WWII with a combination of harsh economic punishment and sleep deprivation. Thanks Obama Kaiser Wilhelm.


Meanwhile, in 2015 2016, this doesn't save any energy because it means people work in buildings that need air conditioning for more of the summer daylight hours.
