As a current Indiana resident I can safely assure you that God hates Indiana and it's for many a more reasons than day-light savings.

DST is dumb. Arizona is lucky.

God's just grumpy from the DST-lag.

Who wouldn't smite a few people this morning, if given the chance?

This is actually god's way of punishing Indiana for letting homosexuals live.

/ok, wrong Indiana, but still...

God 'tests' white Christians.

God 'punishes' everyone else.

Having moved to Indiana from Maryland 12 years ago, I have to say it was weird getting used to DST again.

Oh, and yeah the hail was less-than-pleasant.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to reset The Universe ahead one hour?

As a grumpy Hooiser acclimating to DST I would indeed smite more than a few people this morning if given half the chance.

Too bad so many of them keep failing.

I'm a Hoosier, and I'm pretty sure DST is ruining my life. Sooooooo tired....

I have to say, being from Michigan, I'm sick of everyone here at Purdue biatching about the time change. I'm not sure what is worse; the people who complain about having to be vast majority of everybody else, or the people who can't figure out how to set their clocks. Best question all week "wait, so if I have a meeting scheduled for 9, I have to go at 10 now, right?" Followed by "Wait? Is it daylight savings time or something?"

/boiler up anyway
//then go back to michigan for the unemployment

If this saves so much daylight, why don't we just stay on the fcuking thing all year?

/Idiots.

Mr. Clarence Butterworth [TotalFark]

Only effeminate communists are against Daylight Saving Time.

Clearly, you have never visited Indiana. I can assure you that the DST opposition, just like everything else here, consists mainly of overweight middle-class red-state white folk.

The storm hit TN too - i wonder if God is protesting the new UFIA highway sponsorship by FARK

He was just slightly miffed at the White Sox hanging their World Series banner, and pelted them with much smaller hailstones.

It would be too dark, too late in the morning in the winter. Lots of people wouldn't like that, since they'd never see the sun.

They could get up later, or just not be pussies about it?

Drove home 2.5 hours in the storm last night from west lafayette to south bend. missed the hail thank god. I think it was stated best in a thread a couple days ago by i don't remember who...

"Indiana: Moving the clocks forward, but still in the dark."

"thousands of fans departed a free John Mellencamp concert"

When I used to live in IN that was very common even in good weather.

It's a shame no leadership in Indiana will setup and put the whole state on the same time. Seems someone ran for office based on that promise, but now seems to have forgotten it.
 
2006-04-03 11:05:53 AM  
God doesn't hate daylight-savings time as much as I do.
 
2006-04-03 11:09:20 AM  
As a purdue student, I hereby declare DST total crap. I had to get up an hour earlier today. So I'm going to post and take it all out on you guy.

/shakes fists
//i hate you DST and want you to die

It saves sunlight. The sun rises early and sets earlier( or later, since the days are longer).

DST is the best thing to happen to us since Benjamin Franklin.

All those who hate simply hate America.

Thanks Pat Robertson!

"And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But He loves you. He loves you, and He needs money!"

DST rocks because it doesn't get dark right away, after work.

8-bit-nintendo: "I don't know how you feel, but I'm pretty sick of church people. You know what they outght to do with churches? Tax them. If holy people are so interested in politics, government, and public policy, let them pay the price of admission like everybody else."

- George Carlin


Although I think Carlin has gotten a little too bitter in recent years for my taste, he still strikes a chord with me.

But you went to bed an hour earlier last night, right? The only time "lost" is the 2am to 3am hour on Sunday morning... so ah... what's the big farking deal?

Diogenes...

yeah, agreed.....

When his wife died that kinda made him... bitter
 
2006-04-03 11:27:24 AM  
I had to get up an hour earlier today too. The sun didn't get up an hour early, why should I?

So when is God going to punich Tenn. for our new Fark UFIA sign?

DST is dumb. Arizona is lucky.

Maine is on the leading edge, and we get pwned by it.

2006-04-03 11:29:16 AM  
I'm in northern Indiana. I thought the reasoning behind changing to DST was so the entire state could be on the same time. But nope, only half of our surronding counties. Makes a lot of farking sense. And I lost an hour this morning.

10.0.0.1: They could get up later, or just not be pussies about it?

Awesome idea. Instead of setting the clocks back an hour, let's just alter the schedule of every man, woman and child ahead an hour. The work day will be from 10-6. School starts an hour later. All your TV programs are shifted an hour. Mail gets delivered an hour later.

Good idea.

Yeah, you have to listen to his early stuff, like the "A Place For My Stuff" album - before he got completely obsessed with the Catholic Church. Back then, he was so much more wacky and had a lot more variety in his humour.

I still cannot eat lobsters and crabs. I'm sorry, but if I see some giant bug walking towards me sideways, my first thought isn't "MMM, Delicious" - my instinct is "STEP ON THAT fark! STEP ON IT BEFORE IT GETS TO THE CHILDREN!

Drasancas - DST makes it lighter in the evening, not darker. You are pwned by the time zones, not DST.

What other group would be more freaked out by those urges?
