...and yet my electricity rates are going up because conservation "has led to reduced revenue streams." Thank you local utility company.

It's a movie trailer about daylight savings/leap forward. Only the characters are deeply affected by the time change: heading out to brunch and hour late and not being able to order off the menu, determining the time of death for someone, and other shenanigans. There's guns and a rocket launcher, some lab romance, all the crazy things that happen after the time change.

Why cook bacon discussion:

"Because it taste far better cooked than it does raw? I mean, I can appreciate something like steak tartar, but gnawing on a big hunk of raw bacon fat sounds pretty unpleasant."

Covered parking leads to crashing into the garage door or walls
