I'm never sure when we "enter" DST. Sounds like we entered it this weekend, but I never understood how it was determined that we enter it in the spring and leave it in the fall. What exactly is the savings that we get, anyway?

I often see the song named "Ma Na Ma Na," even. I think the Phenomena was just a common mis-hearing of the words.

The horseradish thing (which is smart!) reminds me of a biochem-major friend of mine, who reported that in one lab, the goal was to synthesize the chemical that has the strong scent of bananas (and is generally the artificial flavor used for bananas). Problem was that once a single group in the lab got a positive result, everyone else had no idea whether they did, because the room commenced to reek of banana, as did their labcoats for hours afterwards.

Lex, you could probably wikipedia some of the details, but the basic idea is giving us more sunlight in the evening.
At some point it was considered to be some kind of energy savings, but I think the new consensus is that it does cost money/energy.

That's an alarm you don't want to set off while cooking.
Which happens ridiculously often to me since I moved into the new place.

I wouldn't mind DST except my old S1 TiVo is out of sync for an hour. As to whether it accomplishes anything (other than headaches), I'm not sure.
