DST: Thank the Golf Lobby for today’s extra hour

..and thank blame the Barbecue, Baseball, and Candy Lobbies, too!

When daylight saving was first enacted, golf ball sales skyrocketed. One additional month of daylight saving was worth $200 million in added golf clubs sales and greens fees.

The barbecue industry said it was worth $100 million in additional sales of grills and charcoal briquettes.

Before Lighted stadiums made night games standard, the Baseball industry also exerted strong influence for Congress to enact Daylight Saving Time.

In 2005, the candy lobby, successfully lobbied for extending DST from six to eight months, thereby covering Halloween, reasoning that an extra hour of evening light would benefit the juvenile extortion racket (aka: ‘trick-or-treat’) thus positively impact sales.

MatterNetBenz.gif

Matternet, Mercedes-Benz, and Swiss online-shop, siroop, have teamed up to deliver coffee and other products to your front door.

Earlier this week the city of Zurich hosted a test. For this demonstration, the drone successfully flew and landed on it destination, the roof of a Mercedes-Benz van.

How will it work in practice?

The drone reads the destination information using a QR code on the package, then flies the goods to the receiver directly using onboard GPS. Moving at speeds of 43 mph(70 km) and with a range of 12 miles (20 km) it will delivery it’s goods (up to 4.5 lbs) directly to the consumer.

Cheers!
