    This is a reminder that when you set your clocks back this weekend to change the batteries in your smoke detectors.

    I better not wake up an hour late for football. 1 hour late means I'm behind 2 beers.

    Hide your clocks, hide your batteries, cause they're changing every watch out there.

    I don't need to change any batteries, since I have an all-natural smoke detector. However, it's probably about time for me to put a new canary in the cage and throw out the skeleton of the old one, so I'll do that this weekend when the time changes.

    One time when I was watching tv, the clock(on the tv screen) said it was gonna turn 2, turned 1 immediately after, one of the many times I thought I actually time traveled.

    I don't know why they make use change the clock after Halloween, It's kinda pointless for Kids to wait another hour till it's dark enoughy to Trick or Treet.

    I hate it. I don't like it when it gets dark at 4:30 in the afternoon. You feel like you lose a lot of the day when that happens. I prefer mid-summer better when it's still day-light around 8:30 in the evening. You feel like you get a lot more done.
    I'd rather get up in the dark, then have it get dark at 5PM.
