Daylight Saving Time
 
OK, I think daylight saving time is a bunch of crap.:mad: Does anybody really think its a good thing?

It was only good back in Ben Franklins day when it saved on lamp oil, that is it, no other purpose.

And it wasn't even useful then, either. The working people just got up at sunrise and went to bed at sunset no matter what.

I believe it had something to do with war time.

History & info - Daylight Saving Time, early adoption, U.S. law

Also, it provides light during the times children are walking/riding their bikes to school in the morning. I could take it or leave it, really. I get depressed when it gets dark at 1630. :(

You will be one hour early. I suggest you just 'forget' changing the clocks in the Spring where it will benefit you. ;)

I'm one of those who wakes up at the same time every regardless of the clock or the sun. Right now it is at 0230, 0330, 0430 and 0530. I usually give up and get out of bed around 0600.

In all honesty I don't see why we don't go to a "global time" like Zulu or Greenwich Mean Time. More people work off the global clock these days than the local clock. It is only a number to me.

If anything the time change makes me less productive while trying to adjust to it than anything else. I suspect that this is the more common sentiment.

I say keep-it all year long...it gets dark at 5:00pm with-out it......

Indeed, just a reminder to those who reside in the states that follow Daylights Savings time to set your clock back 1 hour on Sunday...and a 100 years if your a Republican. ;) :D

That all depends on whether you set your clock an hour forward or backwards...:confused:
