I've been waiting all week for this thread. The butthurt from whiners (whether now or in the fall) is delicious.

That's nothing.....
When I was in the USAF, I flew from the US to Okinawa Japan and lost a *DAY* of my life.

When I returned years later, I never got it back. Ponder THAT.

I usually notice daylight savings time has happened when I notice the clocks on my computers don't match the clocks in my house.

I used to work night shifts on occasion while in university and I'd always love to watch the clock jump from 1:59 to 3:00 AM.

It's probably the closest I'll ever get to being a time traveller.

Probably....

I actually like when Daylight Savings Time starts because it gives me more daylight in the evening after work, which makes it easier to go out for a bike ride or a nice evening walk. I don't really get any "extra" daylight, but I like moving it to a time of the day when I can actually do something with it, as opposed to having extra daylight in the morning when all I'm doing is going to work.

/Nothing is better than those long summer days where the sun doesn't set until after 9 PM at my latitude.

I lose about an hour a year waiting for farkin' HuffPo links to load.  'Long-running scripts' are not an issue with other sites.  Reminds me of old websites that were overloaded with graphics, using dial-up.

The longest week of my life was a 6 hour flight delay at LAX. As a people watcher it was interesting from a sociological point of view.

No, this isn't a smart clock. It was set to DST when we moved into the house and there it has remained.

/Only notice it twice a year, when switching from "heat" to "cool" and vice versa
//Won't be switching to "cool" until farking July at this pace

This.  Remember on July 4th just as the fireworks went off on the River (around 9:20 in the evening) I could look up in the sky and there was still daylight on the horizon.

How I feel when I have to remember to change all the clocks in my house for no reason:

i1.ytimg.com

Seriously, why do we do this to ourselves? Auto accidents and heart attacks go up next week.

Oh, and ol' W. made sure to add a month of it every year so we're out of sync with the other fools who do observe it.

DST is a lie perpetuated by a bunch of fatuous, weak-livered dunderheads.
 
2014-03-07 12:06:17 PM  
I'm not exactly sure how I feel about DST.
I think it's useless, but I cannot deny that there must be something to it.  And this is why...

I seem to be on a very tightly regulated sleep schedule.  I get up at the same time every day.  6:00AM.  This without an alarm clock...  I just wake up.  As we've been getting closer to DST, I've been waking up closer and closer to 5:00AM.  Which means that once DST kicks in, I will be right back at my normal 6:00AM.

And, yes, when we went off DST 6 months ago, I was waking closer an closer to 7:00AM.
 
2014-03-07 12:15:11 PM  
But I'm still using that extra hour:(

But, heart attacks and auto accidents go down in the fall when daylight savings ends. So it all evens out.

I've drafted a script and faxed it in an email to my agent...stay tuned.
 
2014-03-07 12:47:48 PM  
Just wanted to do a little public service!
So this Sunday is when you reset your clocks one hour. And if you ever get confused, just remember this handy little saying: When you trip you fall forward, but when you are surprised, you spring back! That will help you always remember which way to move your clock.
Hope this helps.

The modern concept of which was proposed by some dink in New Zealand so he could spend more time collecting bugs.

Ben Franklin had the concept down better and earlier - an entirely satirical notion that governments should regulate time itself for the betterment of its people.

Than you M&M Mars! (The one and only reason we still fark with the clocks twice per year).

So the acquisition of the Huffington Post was worth it after all.
