On Sunday, March 11, 2018, roughly 327 million Americans will reluctantly participate in an age-old tradition of time travel. Daylight Saving Time 2018 (DST), also known incorrectly as "Daylight Savings Time," will take place at 2 a.m. on Sunday. When the clock strikes, all 327 million of us will "spring forward" to 3 a.m., losing one hour of sleep.

There are a few things to know about Daylight Saving Time. First, not all Americans adjust their clocks. According to History.com, Hawaii, Arizona, and U.S. territories do not observe DST. Europe may in fact end daylight saving. As The Independent reports, Finland called to end the practice last month, along with French MEP Karima Deli. Deli said, "Studies that show an increase in road accidents or sleep trouble during the time change must be taken seriously.”


Our founding father Benjamin Franklin is often credited with implementing Daylight Saving Time. Funny thing is, the story comes from a satirical essay he wrote while in France, after the summer sun woke him up earlier than he expected. According to History.com, a cranky Ben Franklin proposed to the Parisians that waking up at dawn would save them money on candles.

Let us remember we are talking about the difference of a single hour. Clearly, we all take our sleep very seriously. On Monday morning, we will search the depths of the Internet for memes to help us unleash our angst over the historic tradition. Which is probably why you're here. Here are a few funny memes to get you through Daylight Saving Time 2018.

Former Vice President and current 2020 Presidential candidate Joe Biden erupted at a man during an Iowa town hall who accused him of actively working to get his son Hunter a board position on the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings. Biden called the man a "damn liar" before challenging him to pushups.

Republicans seized on the moment as an opportunity to discredit Biden as a candidate, but Fox and Friends cohost Ainsley Earhardt's reaction may be the most deluded yet.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has repeatedly made clear that, after President Donald Trump solicited Ukrainian leaders to announce investigations that personally benefitted him, the decision to launch impeachment proceedings wasn't a political maneuver, but a constitutional mandate.

The move came after years of Trump's supporters, as well as some critics, insisted that impeachment would be political suicide for the Democrats.

Since shortly after the inquiry's announcement in September, support for impeachment outweighed its oppositon as more revelations surfaced of Trump's dealings with Ukraine, but his 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale attempted to show that Pelosi's move to impeach would lose Democrats their House majority.

The House Judiciary Committee, in its public impeachment hearing against President Donald Trump on Wednesday, consulted four constitutional scholars for greater insight to the legal implications of the President's Ukraine scandal—and whether they merit impeachment.

Three witnesses, called by Democrats, each made compelling arguments for the articles of impeachment with which Trump could be charged.

George Washington University professor Jonathan Turley—invited by Republicans—was the lone dissenter.
