olddinosaur: Bucking for a STUPID tag.The sun shines the same amount of time no matter what the clock says.
kidgenius: 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.
abfalter: 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.
Wellon Dowd: Get up an hour later, farktard!
doubled99: Daylight Savings is as useless and outdated a concept as the metric system.
Kyosuke: Oh look, a thread full of people who don't understand why daylight savings time exists.
CheekyMonkey: doubled99: Daylight Savings is as useless and outdated a concept as the metric system.We should all switch to Metric time.
inner ted: the pacific n.w. laughsand we don't even have it as bad as say alaskait's actually staying light past 4pm lately/just like every year, but it's still nice3
Charles_Nelson_Reilly: ...pring forward, fall back."/ I had a premature launch there.
I_Can't_Believe_it's_not_Boutros: But won't the extra hour of sunlight contribute to global warming?
CheekyMonkey: 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.
vudukungfu: 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.
Louisiana_Sitar_Club: I enjoy the change and would prefer that we adjust our clocks by 30 minuets quarterly.
