Yes! Gaining the hour in the autumn is always welcomed!

I also liked how it brought in nicer sunsets at the time....but that's just me.

Lose an hour!!!!
I wish they'd stop this crap! All the studies point out it doesn't save any energy and it actually costs money because of the conflicts that arise from the time change....

Dammmed you DICK, dammed you! ( Actually I think it was an act of congress, but blame Nixon for it.)

The original poster should clarify their statement, as the date mentioned for DST only affects North America, Europe and many other areas have different dates, and of course many countries don't use DST at all.

first daylight savings doesn't effect the number of hours in the day therefore no actual energy saving should happen and all it means is everything happens 1 hour earlier.

where i live it would be pointless to add daylight savings as no real benefit is achieved from it
unless it was in winter where you have less daylight hours in the day


Daylight Saving Time was established before electric lighting was a thing. It is largely irrelevant to modern society.


No, not true...though it was originally suggested in the late 1700's by Benjamin Franklin, I believe...It wasn't actually used until during the first World War, and "electric lighting" was invented by then. Actually the U.S. wasn't even the first country to enact Day Light saving time, it was actually adopted in Europe first, and then the U.S followed suit.


I wasn't meaning it wasn't invented. While the commercialization of light bulbs was a slow progression, it was around 1910 that they saw a price drop that would make them much more accessible. It was in 1916 that DST was first utilized (1918 for US). I don't think that was enough time for it to become widespread across the whole of society, especially compared to today.

It was rather spontaneously implemented, not the most considerate logic possible. We've had much time since then to apply better science around it and find it has minimal scientific justification. Especially in this era where you can walk great distances in the dark and still have plenty of light to be safe. It does not suit this era of commuting work.

Eh, you get used to it just like everyone else. The only thing that gets me is that I'll sometimes flip flop in my head when daylight savings is (like, think we're pacific time in winter instead of in summer). It's actually kind of nice that we only have to worry about it when calling someone out of state. And I don't have cable or satellite so I wouldn't know if it causes problems. I'd assume they stick with whatever time zone they're based out of which likely means it's affected by DST unless it's a local channel like news or something.

Officially there is no "S" on the word "Saving". Who knew? I've been saying "Savings" my whole life.

Odd that neither TV Tokyo or Studio Pierrot have bothered to deny those "rumors".

Oh by the way, why are Bleach and Naruto the only shows affected by this?

I never understood the concept of gaining or losing an hour. At the end of the day, we still get 24 hours in the day.
