Well, it is Donald Trump time. The president lies so many times a day that his total has reached the 8,000 mark. POTUS as been trying to reshape reality into what he wants people to believe, and lies are a useful tool toward that end. Speaking of the end, the man sitting in the Oval Office may be trying to change time, but hopefully not the end of time. See what you think.
Here is Trump. See Trump welcome Tim Cook. Watch Trump say “Tim Apple.” Run Tim, run:
‘At a recent round table meeting of business executives, & long after formally introducing Tim Cook of Apple, I quickly referred to Tim + Apple as Tim/Apple as an easy way to save time & words. The Fake News was disparagingly all over this, & it became yet another bad Trump story!’
Back to time now. The president said that he liked daylight savings time so much he wanted to keep it forever. The people who implemented this circadian rhythms-shattering move said that they did it, because they did not want children walking to school in the dark and/or to save energy. Since when did politicians want to save energy?
In actuality, they forced daylight savings time onto everyone (with a very few exceptions) to provide more shopping time to customers. Does Trump know that? If anything, the U.S. should go back to real time. He tweeted:
‘Making Daylight Saving Time permanent is O.K. with me!’
A journal, BMC Biology, published a study in 2007 about individuals’ sleeping and wakefulness patterns. They wanted to see how daylight savings time affected people for eight weeks around the time shifts, according to Live Science.
The study was dismal. It found “people never fully adjust:”
‘…researchers found people never fully adjust their circadian rhythms to the hour shift associated with daylight saving time (or, as it is known in Europe, summer time). Springing ahead by an hour, however, was most difficult for night owls — people prone to wake up and go to sleep late, they found.’
