It's daylight saving time again. I'm sure you've already changed whichever clocks don't change themselves, but make sure you also change your smoke alarm batteries, your personal assistant, and your Secretary of State.

You down with DST? No. Also, now I'm a single issue voter. This is my issue. I'll vote for the candidate most likely to end time changes. I don't care if a state picks Daylight or Standard. Just pick one and stick with it.

Okay, when something this stupid continues long after people want it to end and any justification for is gone, there is usually a reason. That reason is always money.  So where is the money in DST?

Oh, so you're the enlightened one?  No difference between EST and DST?  If you choose one over the other, you're clearly part of the problem!

Well, one is Eastern Standard time. The other is Daylight Saving Time. And you know, I would be perfectly happy with Eastern Standard time... for the whole country. That's what they do in China: One Time Zone to Rule Them All!. Or we could just bite the bullet and go GMT world wide!

Here's something I thought was funny: Many of you are aware that we've stopped including content that came from offsite in the Fark NotNewsletter in favor of highlighting original comments that came from Fark. This includes things like memes, image macros, and tweets (there are exceptions if the memes/macros were made by a Farker for the thread or they are used in original ways). It's nothing against these comments - we all enjoy them! - it's just that we want to highlight Fark content in the NNL.

So anyway, there's one tweet that would have been in both the "smart" and "funny" categories for PolTab. It's this comment from DijitalDharma. Funny thing is that the tweet is from a Farker, ffish. Nobody in the thread mentioned this, so I'm not sure if they knew he's a Farker.

I am opposed to DST on scientific grounds.  An extra hour of daylight every evening will speed up global warming.  For the sake of our children, we MUST end DST's threat to the environment!

texdent: Not all us can live in Arizona


Arizona residents suffer the effects of DST, just in other ways.  If you work with coworkers in other states, appointments in your calendar can shift by an hour.  If you have friends or family in other states, you have to update your mental notes as to when it is now too late to call.

It would be nice if everyone eliminated DST.  The only other change I'd suggest is moving part of New England from Eastern (UTC-5) to Atlantic (UTC-4) time.  Conservative option would be to set the boundary at the western edge of Maine.  The aggressive option would be to set it along the NH/VT border, cutting thru MA just west of Worcester, and then along the CT/RI border.  They're too far east to be in a UTC-5 zone.

That is an awesome comment. I pass over the politics threads for TFD, though, because we already have a whole politics section. Also things we have covered on non-TF, because I want to highlight TFD-specific stuff. I'm open to reconsidering that if most people want them included instead.
