Actually it's not random. Because a day is a bit more than 24 hours actually in a whole year it makes up about an hour two times. And every four years there gets to be enough to create about another day. Something like that.

I think they're talking about daylight savings time.(Tell me if that's what you were talking about, I'm not sure-)

OK, I guess Imma have to explain all of this. So in march, they turn the clocks forward so we don't have to see the sun go down so flipping early each night. Why, you may ask? Well, there's many reasons. For example, oh, is that an APPLE you're eating? Well, where the heck did it come from? Farmers. They do a heck of a lot to help all of us, and they're the primary reason (i think) for this. When we turn the clocks forward, they get an extra hour to plant and harvest. Sure, that seems like a small amount, but it's in effect for like 3 months at the LEAST. 90 days x 1 hour, that's 90 hours of work they get to help support us. Still looks like a little? Over 50% of farmers work 10-14 hours a day.
So thats 5-9 extra days of work they get to support us and themselves. Plus, all of you who have a curfew of sunset (i mean, I'm not allowed out alone :')) get an extra hour to go outside. They don't just give an extra hour and not take it back. At the END of Daylight Savings Time, in November, at 2:00 A.M., they turn the clocks BACK, thereby giving us back our sleep. By the way, Memester, that thing you said? That's for leap years. Basically, One year is equal to 365 days and 1/4. And if you know math, 1/4 x 4 = 1. So every 4 years, they tack another day onto February to compensate.
I mean, even though daylight savings is helpful, it still causes problems. Yesterday I forgot it was daylight savings and I lived the whole day an hour behind the rest of the US.
Wow that was long, hope I helped.

I didn’t read the whole thing because I’m lazy, but I applaud you for writing all of that for us who are too lazy to figure it out ourselves

In other words, we do it for the farmers because they get up at dawn and go to bed at dusk no matter the time.

The clock in my house is 48 years old

Truthfully I think it's always been pretty stupid too, regardless of changing the time on your clock there's still the same amount of time in a day, you're only giving yourself the illusion of having more time/daylight, but with that being said I'm sure there would be drastic consequences for stopping it now after doing it for so long. If farmer's been setting they're daily schedules to daylight savings for 50 years that gets them up an hour earlier everyday for half of the year, meaning if you change it now all that food he/she/they processed, or harvested in that day (xHalf the year) is gonna not get harvested/processed, in turn less food is going to make it to suppliers in turn less food is gonna make it to your mouth.

Sry for the rant👆
