Eight little-known facts about Daylight Saving Time, which begins Sunday, March 9:

8. The extra “S” in Daylight Savings Time is silent. Also, non-existent (except in Utah).

7. In addition to smoke alarms, DST is also a good time to check batteries in adult “massage” devices (especially in Utah).

6. Germany was the first country to implement Daylight Saving Time. Ponder that.

5. DST wasn’t created by a malevolent Time Lord. Related: Doctor Who is fiction.

4. Opting out of Daylight Saving Time is the only redeemable quality of Arizona.

3. The Utah legislature will do nothing about DST until someone proves it allows more time for alcohol consumption and/or free thinking.

2. Something about 4:20 … what the hell was it?

1. Anti-DSTers have an answer to “Spring Forward, Fall Back”: “Summer Over It.”
