10 Most Creative Things to Do With Your Extra Daylight Savings Hour

Thanks to Daylight Saving Time we gain one more glorious hour in our day. Now of course you can sleep for those extra 60 seconds, but we've found 10 much more creative uses for your precious time.

In one hour, you can ....

... Board a plane in Los Angeles, California, and be sipping margaritas in the hot son of Tijuana, Mexico. The flight clocks in at 45 minutes so you even have time to check your luggage (but good luck trying to find a direct flight).

... Attend six Las Vegas weddings. According to the famous Little White Wedding Chapel, ceremonies last about 10 minutes each. We're guessing that annulments might take a smidge longer.

... Ride Space Mountain at Disney World in Orlando, Florida, 24 times. That's a whole lot of loops, twists and drops, so bring a barf bag.

... Get super soft, fancy hands by giving yourself a One Minute Manicure 60 times.

... Nicki Minaj's Anaconda video about 12.423 times. That's 12.423 times the gravity defying twerking that's already mesmerized our nation.

... Brew 20 pots of delicious, fancy French press coffee -- if you're brewing at three minutes a pot.

... Make 360 Totinos Pizza Rolls (if you cook the recommended six at a time). Don't forget to let each batch cool for the necessary two minutes, lest you get piping hot cheese all over your face.

... Roast a 4-lb. chicken in the Ronco Rotisserie, which is a great use of your excess hour because, as Ron Popeil tells us, you just 'set it and forget it!'

... Use your time to get fit and run 27.44 miles, if you happen to be as fast as Usain Bolt in his prime.

... Achieve the coveted 8-Minute Abs seven-and-a-half times. At that rate, you'll have 45-pack abs).

Now, we know these are 10 fantastic uses of your time, but let's be honest ... you'll probably spend your extra hour snoozing away. Slackers.

Maybe you need energy for your extra 3600 seconds. In that amount of time you can brew 20 pots of delicious, fancy french press coffee if you’re brewing at 3 minutes a pot.

One more hour could make you hungry. So you can make 360 Totinos Pizza Rolls -- that is if you’re cooking the recommended 6 at a time. Don’t forget to let each batch cool for the necessary 2 minutes lest you get piping hot saucy cheese scorching your chin.

If you’re really hungry you can roast a 4-lb. chicken in the Ronco Rotisserie which is a great use of your excess hour because as Ron Popeil tells us you just ‘set it and forget it!’

If you’d rather use your extra hour for healthier pursuits you can run 27.44 miles -- if you are Usain Bolt in his prime.

10 most creative things to do with your extra Daylight Saving Time hour
Benjamin Franklin essentially came up with this glorious time exchange in 1741, when he was an ambassador for Paris.Though it wasn't until World War I that Europe truly started to implement Daylight Saving Time in order to bolster their war efforts.

DST before 2007 used to fall a few days before Halloween, but since the holiday tends to come with increased accidents it was moved to the first Sunday in November, according to Acurite.

Though, some dispute that the change was made to allow Trick or Treaters to stay out longer.

Arizona and Hawaii are the only two U.S. states that don't observe Daylight Saving Time. Pro: they don't have to worry about changing their clocks. Con: they never 'gain an hour.'

When World War II came around-- saving time was fashionable again and everyone wanted to get their hands on daylight saving time. However, it was near complete confusion in the United States-- there was no uniformity. According to Live Science, "One 35-mile bus ride from Moundsville, W.Va., to Steubenville, Ohio, took riders through no less than seven different time changes."

It was officially adopted by the U.S. in 1966. 

DST can affect the time you're born-- on paper that is. A baby could be born at 1:55 a.m. during daylight saving time, with another born ten minutes later, marked as 1:05 a.m.

Freaky, huh?

We hate to be that person-- but Daylight Saving Time is not plural, though many say and spell it as such. So, if you want to be that person you can spend the day correcting all of your friends when they say "daylight savings time."
Many countries near the equator do not adjust their clocks for daylight saving. Japan and China don't observe DST at all, and Antarctica doesn't either.
