Okay, the Videosift protest spawned a counter-protest, so they're back (and not stripped because they are the ones who identified them as worthy of posting). I happily accept videos from other sources, so feel free to submit them.

Umm, farmers don't work by the clock, they go to work when the sun comes up and quit when it goes down, no matter what time it is.

Hah! You win the internet today!


I'm all for ending the switching of clocks and sticking to one time. I like the extra hour of daylight during day light saving time, but I think we should keep standard time, where noon is the time when the sun is at its highest point and instead move "standard" business hours back one hour. One place I worked at I had worked from 7am to 3:30pm. I loved those hours because when I got off work there was plenty of daylight left to get shit done. At first I hated the shorter lunch break, but it didn't take long to get used to it and eventually grew to like it. I didn't need an hour to eat lunch and it meant getting off work half an hour earlier.

I've always hated hour lunches when I worked corporate. I'd much rather be getting out of work early. In hospitality you don't really have mandated breaks - regardless of what the law says - and just take a break when you can and go go go the rest of the time. You usually just take 5 minutes between the 6 and 8 seatings, scarf down whatever, take a leak, have a smoke, get back to it. I acutally prefer that because A) it makes the day fly by B) at least as far as restos are concerned it means you're making money and that's always good. Sitting around twiddling your thumbs in that industry is a bad thing.
