Fall back as 'Last Week Tonight' asks 'how is this still a thing?'

I've become increasingly skeptical about the benefits of Daylight Saving Time since I first mentioned in on this blog in 2012.  I'm not alone, as two-and-one-half years ago, Last Week Tonight asked Daylight Saving Time - How Is This Still A Thing?

Daylight saving time doesn’t actually benefit anyone. Strangely, it’s still a thing!
All of that applies most strongly to springing ahead, not falling back, but falling back has its own perils.  The Skit Guys demonstrate one of them in Left Behind! Daylight Savings Reminder.

The life of Henry Lovegood was simple. There was a routine and Henry loved routines. Wake up. Shower. Prepare breakfast. Read a bit. Drive to Church. Until it wasn’t. Watch as Henry Lovegood’s life is turned upside down by forgetting to set his clocks back one hour.
Don't be Henry.  Fall back so you don't get left behind.
