Retronaut: Couple Refuse To Put Clocks Back

Read this interesting little article about a couple who refuse to let our modern arbitrary manipulation of time rule their lives, by ignoring the human invention of daylight savings, and how it seems to really work for them.

I find this fascinating, I have always found the way we change the clocks a bit ridiculous. It's as if we think we somehow own time and can do what we will with it. When you're a kid, you think changing the clocks somehow changes the time, but it really only changes time as we know it. Time goes its own way regardless.
