Daylight Savings Time ends this weekend

So remember to set your clocks back one hour before going to bed on Saturday evening.
This is one of the best weekends of the year. Of course, rather than getting an extra hour of sleep, we'll just stay up an extra hour on Saturday night.

Ever wonder where DST originated? According to this article - link - it started with some guy in England who wanted to play golf after work. It eventually caught on in the US during WWI, as an attempt to burn less coal during the evening hours.
