So when sunshine go away today he don't feel much like dancing?

Florida: Striving to be Arizona.

This ought to really confuse the old folks in that section of the Panhandle that's already in the next time zone.
 
2013-02-12 02:02:15 PM
In this day and age it really makes absolutely no sense to move between the two.  We should just stay on day light savings time and be done with it.

Florida is pretty far west and close to the Central Time Zone. They should just put the entire state in Central Zone and be done with it.

I wish California would stay on DST year 'round. The change-over farks me up for a week each time.
 
2013-02-12 02:03:45 PM
Dammit; here I was all ready to criticize Subby for making light of Seasonal Affective Disorder, only to find out that this seems to actually be what's going through the lawmaker's head.

Get up an hour later, farktard!

Daylight Savings is as useless and outdated a concept as the metric system.

Bucking for a STUPID tag.

The sun shines the same amount of time no matter what the clock says.
 
2013-02-12 02:05:43 PM
It's the way it should be all the time.  It's inane we're still using this ridiculous time change system. It's much nicer (and more useful) when it stays daylight later.
 
2013-02-12 02:05:55 PM
I hate the idea of DST.

In fact, if I were World Emperor I'd just tell everyone to switch to using GMT regardless of their locale.  If the sun rises at 2:30am in your locale then you get up and go to work at 3:30am (or whatever).  But 2:30am would be 2:30am no matter where you were.

while his rationale is stupid, his goal is noble.

seriously, we haven't been an agrarian society for over 100 years. enough of this clock changing horseshiat.
 
2013-02-12 02:06:26 PM
Whatever his reasoning, his desired result is laudable.  Daylight Savings is effing stupid

/Still bitter about Indiana finally giving in and joining DST

Daylight savings time is stoopid; the amount of daylight is fixed, and the number of the hour is arbitrary. That said, I'd like to go on daylight savings time all the time just to avoid the pointless inefficiency of "s

Yeah - the lose-an-hour \ gain-an-hour thing just screws everything up. I've always wondered why we don't just set the clocks back 1/2 hour... and leave them the hell alone.

If you're gonna do that, screw a.m./p.m.  Just go with a 24 hour clock.

Whatever the machinations of his mind, his end is commendable. fark daylight savings time.

Oh look, a thread full of people who don't understand why daylight savings time exists.

Hero tag should have trumped Florida tag.

Who's the farktard now?!?

Get up an hour earlier, finish work earlier and, hey presto, you have an extra hour to be outside at the end of the day.

It would be the most effective energy policy our government has passed in recent memory!

We should all switch to Metric time.

Pick one or the other and stay with that time.  I farking hate time changes, the older I get the harder it is to deal with them.

Kyosuke: Oh look, a thread full of people who don't understand why daylight savings time exists.


Oh look, a thread full of people who think there's an "s" in "daylight saving time".

/Yes, I know "saving" starts with an "s".  I mean ANOTHER "s".
 
2013-02-12 02:13:09 PM
How many farktards are going to add an S to the end of "Saving" in this thread?
 
2013-02-12 02:13:38 PM
Farmers can farm their fields around the setting of the sun and the rising.. Hey wait they do that already. Its just the rest of us that actually run by the clock.

GET RID OF IT ALREADY!

Early riser...  Give me standard time, all the time.

The current time in the East is 5:93.

But won't the extra hour of sunlight contribute to global warming?

The dark isn't nearly as bad as the 22 1/2 of daylight in June.  Thank dog for blackout curtains.

I wonder if he realizes that on the Winter Solstice Miami already has more hours of sunlight than the rest of the country? 10:31 hours, compared to 9:26 in DC and 9:04 in Boston.

I was around when they implemented it and I thought (rightfully so) that grown ups were always farking up a good thing.
I never thought I would live long enough to see a grow up pull his head out of his ass and actually challenge the masses of asses and say, bullshiat. this silliness has gone on long enough.
 
2013-02-12 02:19:13 PM
As much as I like to make fun of the state I was raised in I think getting rid of changing the clock twice a year is a damn fine idea.

I_Can't_Believe_it's_not_Boutros: But won't the extra hour of sunlight contribute to global warming?


Everyone knows that's not a real thing.  But if it were, we could just add another hour of darkness to balance it out.  25 hours in a day would be better anyway - then I wouldn't be stuck with partial bottles of 5-Hour Energy.
 
2013-02-12 02:20:44 PM
The parents whining about their kids having to be out at 8am for school and it still being dark cracked me up. Millions of canadian kids do it every day in the winter...
 
2013-02-12 02:22:39 PM
Here are your choices, folks:

No daylight saving(s) time: Sun comes up at a god-awful early hour in the summer, goes down before your are ready.

Permanent daylight saving(s) time: Winter sun comes up late, so you get to drive to work in the dark while your children stand around at a dark cold bus stop.

It makes sense if you put some thought into it.

Or you can just whine about the time changes.

You were in Germany in 1916?

I enjoy the change and would prefer that we adjust our clocks by 30 minuets quarterly.

In a service industry based state, sunlight in the evenings makes more sense than in the mornings. I know I would rather work as the sun raises and get 9 holes in after work in January.
