Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Messes Up Daylight Saving Time

Rob Ford just can't catch a break. The scandal-plagued Toronto mayor tweeted out what should have been a harmless update Saturday night reminding his followers to prepare their clocks and smoke alarms for daylight saving time. Unfortunately, Ford made one small mistake: he told people to turn their clocks back rather than forward.   He tweeted: "Daylight Saving Time starts this evening, turn your clocks back and change batteries in smoke alarms." The original tweet was up for roughly 30 minutes before it was deleted and replaced with one worded correctly.

SPEAKING OF DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME:

Feeling a bit tired today? Experts say it could take some of us up to two weeks to recover from the effects of our shifted clocks.
