    I have the solution to all of our energy problems (personally I don't have any and drilling and refining would be the real answer).

    Let's all turn our clocks back one hour come 3-13-11. Then, we can turn them ahead one hour once past the equinox and near the solstice. :D

    lets get rid of daylight saving time altogether. its got to cost a few million in productivity just re setting clocks twice a year and the government pays farmers NOT to farm anyway.

    Wait...better idea. we'll use bloombergs anti-gun bus to run on a huge tread mill to create power. His whole movement is about spinning wheels aimlessly, so lets make it useful.

    Not only that, but I am concerned about all of the lost time work by the early birds. 6am start is now 5am. You know they won't do anything during the first hour for at least 5 or 6 months. :eek:

    Cool that you get the joke, but daylight saving has nothing to do with farmers and never did. In theory, it reduces the use of electricity. In originality, it reduced the amount of lamp oil consumed per annum. Farmers have never cared what time it was; sun up to sun down is their clock. :cool:

    I suggest the "Eco Wheel"

    [​IMG]

    We set up thousands of these around the Country. Then we round up the anti coal, oil, gas and nuclear power eco freaks. They can then voluntarily (or not) perform their non polluting, free range, holistic, patchouli stinking duty.

    We could call it the "Jogging for Juice" project.

    If they don't want us to have power our way, fine. But we're going to have power one way or another. ;)

    right right conservation and what not. Thanks for sobering up what was about to become a complete nonsense thread... i was having fun :p

    how about a complete switch to renewable energy like wind, solar, fusion and tidal so the whole conservation argument becomes a moot point

    I'm all for daylight saving time. We're saving daylight instead of burning it, woo hoo. But why quit saving it in the winter? We need it worse then. I say let's spring ahead tonight and then QUIT. Stop forking around with my life. I'm saving your damn daylight, leave me alone. Find something else to harass me about, I realize harassing me is your job, you're the government, I'm just the poor schlub that pays your salary, but I am FREAKING SICK OF YOU MESSING UP MY SLEEP PATTERNS TWICE A YEAR! Thank you.

    If we didn't change the clocks, how would I ever remember to change the batteries in my smoke detectors.;)

    Is that what I have been hearing for the last 2 months? I thought it was just the biological entity living in my head.

    Let's all move to Arizona. Back to Arizona for some of us. Besides, it's the most gun friendly state in the union anyway.
