I don't know whether to laugh or cry!

I'm a research biologist at the EPA and just forwarded this to some of my co-workers. Should make for some interesting conversation at our next meeting. Our education system really needs improvement, especially in science and math, but, unfortunately, schools can't teach common sense!

But then, just think, an extra hour of daylight each day means an extra hour of sailing before dropping the hook and enjoying a sundowner!

Cheers!

April fools 15 days late?

Nobody, even those living in rural Arkansas, are that dense, or are they????

Naw, it's a total put on. Must be, has to be. I sure hope it is!!

So global warming is that easy to fix? Just move our clocks back a couple of hours? What's all the fuss about then?

I remember a bumper sticker from the 60's or so, that read..."Question Authority". Then later on it was "Question Reality". I think after reading this, it should be "Question Stupidity"!!!

As a matter of fact I don't like daylight saving either. I find the extra hour of sunlight is fading my curtains....
