Determined to confuse young minds just before spring break, the folks over at NIST pushed all the clocks ahead by an hour last night in a semi-annual tradition known as Daylight Saving Time.
We now know that the energy-saving aspirations of the March-November shift were bunk, but at least children now can trick-or-treat in daylight in the Fall.
What does this mean for all of us too old to storm around the neighborhood as Pikachu? One less hour to study for midterms.
Ready, set, panic.
