More stress, more heart attacks, more car accidents... jet lag for a solid week
Fucking thing sucks.
I just realized that today was the last 'regular' Sunday until the week AFTER fucking Halloween.....
Why the fuck do we put up with this nonsense? Let's stop this bullshit already.
Can walk my dog at 7pm...ok with it.
Try living in NY for the six months we don't have it
I can't wait
And where's my happy birthday??
So why not just leave it that way year round? Changing the damn clocks back and forth is lunacy.
Because someone wants me to still go to work in the dark.
its pure bullshit..... there is no need for this shit anymore...
Industrialized societies generally follow a clock-based schedule for daily activities that do not change throughout the course of the year. The time of day that individuals begin and end work or school, and the coordination of mass transit, for example, usually remain constant year-round. In contrast, anagrarian society's daily routines for work and personal conduct are more likely governed by the length of daylight hours and by solar time, which change seasonally because of the Earth's axial tilt. North and south of the tropics daylight lasts longer in summer and shorter in winter, the effect becoming greater as one moves away from the tropics.
By synchronously resetting all clocks in a region to one hour ahead of Standard Time (one hour "fast"), individuals who follow such a year-round schedule will wake an hour earlier than they would have otherwise; they will begin and complete daily work routines an hour earlier, and they will have available to them an extra hour of daylight after their workday activities. However, they will have one less hour of daylight at the start of each day, making the policy less practical during winter.
While the times of sunrise and sunset change at roughly equal rates as the seasons change, proponents of Daylight Saving Time argue that most people prefer a greater increase in daylight hours after the typical "nine-to-five" workday. Supporters have also argued that DST decreases energy consumption by reducing the need for lighting and heating, but the actual effect on overall energy use is heavily disputed.
The manipulation of time at higher latitudes (for example Iceland, Nunavut or Alaska) has little impact on daily life, because the length of day and night changes more extremely throughout the seasons (in comparison to other latitudes), and thus sunrise and sunset times are significantly out of sync with standard working hours regardless of manipulations of the clock. DST is also of little use for locations near the equator, because these regions see only a small variation in daylight in the course of the year.
you go to hell and you die
I'm so glad that an hour doesn't fuck my day up at all. If it did I would probably be bitching and moaning like you guys.
That'd help my tan, just like day light savings!
i live in San Diego.. its sunny here all year long... we don't need this bullshit
all it does is kill people... you can't wait for what the time change?
You're quite the buzzkill tonight aren't you?
More healthy vitamin E daylight, less gloom at 5PM. If it were up to me, we' d have DST all year round.
I like when it stays light 'til 8:00 at night. What's the problem?
i like to think its a year round buzzkill.... happy birthday!
feel free to ignore mine in a few weeks
i own a gun and i will use my rights to defend myself against getting up one hour later...
