So..... will you guys irrationally hate me and wish death on me if I say that I actually like Day Light Saving?


No

You're not the one who is responsible for implementing the nonsense, for actually making the rest of us to go along with it

I really like DST, the sky's bright till almost 11 PM during July.
Or you could move to Saskatchewan no DST there.

I like the time change....I love that when I come home from work I have plenty of daylight to go hiking, BQing, etc... Plus the time change rings in the warmer months or sets the tone for winter. For me it is all about family time and the more light means we can be out longer. It is awesome when it is daylight almost until 2200hrs. You are right some countries don't change...Most depressing to live in Germany and go to work in the dark and come home in the dark!

No I'll just wait until my local government to come to its senses and pass the legislation to end it.

Ask how many people around the forums want light at 11 at night when it's not even night

To me, everyone who wants the light can do it at their own time- Go to work at their own time, get off work at their own time (I'm sure the bosses can make allowance for going one hour early if you come in one hour early too)

Don't need to drag the rest of us into the personal routine

Still remember when DST was first used in Arizona. Nothing like having the sun shining at 8:30 at night. Listening to the kids outside playing, while my mom was making me go to bed since school was the next day.

Thank all the powers to be that it was done away with here.

While you're at it go ahead and abolish the Imperial system of measurement. I hate it with a passion (and I'm an American), it causes so much unnecessary overhead, especially when buying stuff internationally.

I think it causes more confusion and stress, for sure.

Anyway, I forgot to change my clock back, which is my first alarm, so I didn't wake up until my phone went off, resulting in me being twenty minutes late for work. Ha.

So abandon time zones and stick to solar time.


You're gonna sell sundial alarm clocks to everyone, and hook up all the subway trains to track the sun?


No, that wouldn't work.
What would work is using the sundial as the standard to set other clocks to and keep one train running in a circle around each town.


That wouldn't work either... That sundial is going to have longer hours in the summer and shorter hours in the winter... just repeating the same DST nonsense except adjusting the clocks even more often. This is not even mentioning making people work longer in the summer... you may think of prolonging people's daily air-conditioned nightmares in the summertime as a "good idea" but I don't... and what about making people who live in the southern latitudes have a longer workday? What about TV shows that have to have precise lengths?


I don't see the problem.
The time should be based on the earth's rotation and position in it's orbit around the sun, if any of that happens to be inconvenient then that's too bad.

I could but I don't see how it's any more relevant than my question that you refuse to answer.
