I hate Day Light Saving Time (not “Savings”). It messes with my internal clock. I usually get up around 5:30 am. Now it’s 6:30, and I’ve lost an hour of solace, silence, and solitude.
In the fall, we should set our timepieces back 30 minutes and leave them there.
But here is a good outcome of Daylight Saving Time that’s going to make it a little easier for me to take. I’m only sorry that a Volvo SUV got blown to bits as well:
“Police believe a device may have exploded in Dublin on Sunday because a gangster forget about the Daylight Saving Time change.
“A blundering bomber was being hunted last night after a powerful device he attached to a car exploded in his face.
“The injured criminal fled the scene in Dublin ‘dripping in blood’ on Sunday night after the device went off early.
“It had been attached to a Volvo SUV belonging to a local businessman.
“One of the theories is the suspect forgot about the clocks changing.
“A source said: ‘It would appear that the bomber got his timings wrong. It could be a case where he didn’t put his watch forward on Sunday [at 1am] and the timer went off too soon.’
“Irish police are investigating if he got his timings wrong after planting the high-grade explosives under an SUV on Long Lane in Dublin’s South Inner City.
“Neighbours reported hearing a huge blast at around 11pm on Sunday near the old Meath Hospital.”
“The man was then seen stumbling from the scene and getting into a taxi on the junction of New Street and Clanbrassil Street.”
