falling back, get ready for night to begin at frickin 5pm. This daylight savings shit started to save energy for WWI? yeah that makes sense 100 years later... Wiggy isn't even awake after 8pm "The Standard Time Act was passed in 1918, which officially established time zones and incorporated daylight saving months into federal law. This was during World War I, when national efforts were made to conserve materials for the war effort. It was believed that if daytime hours could correspond better with natural light, fewer tasks would need to be done at night. Homes would need to use less energy to stay lit."
