Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Daylight Saving Time - How Is This Still a Thing???

Any talk of humans being purely rational beings, or relying on "evidence-based decision-making" becomes ridiculously absurd after you watch this and realize that we (a good portion of humans on the globe) participate in a ritual called "Daylight Savings Time" that beyond being odd and inconvenient has actually been proven somewhat DANGEROUS and DETRIMENTAL... and we're still doing it! It's a habit that goes largely unquestioned (what happened to the "the unexamined life... yada yada yada"), serves no apparent purpose, and provides no apparent benefit (except for another thing to bitch about to colleagues at work or school).
