    Daylight Saving Time: ‘Fall back’ continues despite questions about benefits
    POSTED 8:56 PM, OCTOBER 31, 2015, BY CNN WIRE

    DENVER — Ready or not, Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday.
    Loved by some, loathed by many, our biannual clock twirling ritual has wide-ranging and often surprising implications.

    From energy use to our very health, here’s a look at some of the mythology and facts surrounding DST.

    It doesn’t seem to be a huge energy saver

    One of the most commonly offered rationales for Daylight Saving Time (yes, it’s “Saving,” not “Savings”) is the presumption that by extending summer daylight later into the evening, Americans would use less energy.

    It was the reason Congress used in enacting Daylight Saving Time during World War I and again after the United States joined WW II, according to author David Prerau.

    Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to hold true.

    A 2008 U.S. Department of Energy study reported Daylight Saving Time reduces annual energy use by about 0.03%. And a study that same year from the University of California-Santa Barbara found it might even increase energy consumption.

    I hate it with a passion. I've screwed myself so many times by either showing up early or late to work. I always forget.

    Thank goodness I seen this thread. Just changed all of my clocks.

    it's stupid but I like it. I need little milestones throughout my year and this is one i'm used to and look forward to.

    I don't get people whose systems and routines apparently can't handle the change. an hour shouldn't be fucking you up that badly.
