Daylight savings time will leave the human body feeling “off” for at least a week. This is probably the first time setting the clocks back caused actual physical damage.

A bomber in Dublin, Ireland injured himself after his device went off too soon. Police believe he may have forgotten about the clocks changing for Daylight Saving. The suspect was seen fleeing the scene of the explosion with “blood dripping down his face” after the device planted under a Volvo SUV went off too early.

More from the International Business Times:

A senior source told the Mirror: “This certainly was a high-grade explosive used in this bomb. It wasn’t garbage stuff.

“It would appear the bomber got his timings wrong.

“It could be a case where he didn’t put his watch forward on Sunday [at 1am] and the timer went off too soon.

Police are doubtful that the bomber had terrorist ties and said the incident was likely about gang activity.

I’m no expert but I’ve got a strong feeling the other gang will win this war. Especially if they own watches that automatically set for Daylight Savings.
