I have always thought this whole concept of setting clocks forward/back was just plain stupid.
Yep, no reason for this shinanagins.
It's a stupid practice that should have been stopped decades ago. What is this 1850?
I hate driving to work in the dark.
But guys, WE GET AN EXTRA HOUR OF SLEEP!!!!
I like standard time & so does my internal clock. The change of seasons from summer to fall messes me up and then when the time changes it gets even worse. By the time we go from fall to winter, I'm pretty much a basket case.
The whole time thing is fucking stupid. They should just leave the fucker at the same time all year.
Changing ONE fucking hour on the clock doesn't save energy or money.
The only thing that should change should be when you go do shit, on your own if you are wanting more daylight.
When I worked for the state not only did the time change but our hours changed between summer and winter. So we'd just show up to work earlier and get off earlier or we would show up later and leave later depending on what transition.
I don't worry with changing my clocks, they are atomic clocks that set themselves and change when NORAD switches over for daylight savings.
I prefer the hours for the Winter. It fucks me up swtiching back during the Spring because I have my sleep patterns down and it also fucks with bowel movements because you've got that on a schedule as well and everything is thrown off. I don't fucking like it.
We're basically the same Sam, except I'm more of a summer person. I had a shrink once tell me to move to Australia for the winter since our winter is their summer. Not the brightest of shrinks which is why I found another.
It's on a fucking weekend. I go to bed when I want on the weekend, and get up when I want. Honestly, that's not much different than during the week - but I digress, it's still a bunch of bunk.
I like daylight savings time. My leeches set their clocks by it.
I don't consider it an extra hour of sleep, more of an extra hour of darkness to sleep in. That's one of the things that bugs me about summer. Coming home late and going to bed at 4 a.m., then damn before you know it, there's the sun coming up. If I remember the whole daylight savings time, was started I believe during the First World War. So yeah, I think its time to retire it.
And then what do we do?
Earth-time is just silly. Mars is better.
I'm a night-owl. Therefore, anything that makes daylight go away faster is alright with me.
Do you mean you like daylight savings time better? After the clocks are turned back, it'll be standard time.
I cant stand this time of year before the time changes how much energy are you saving when you have to turn on you lights in the morning. By the time you get home you have to use the lights either way. Street lights are alway on so there is no saving there.
My work hours change from 10-7 to 9-6 during the winter. That is kind of nice, for a little bit, but I definatley prefer the summer time change.
Good thing I noticed . . . my alarm clock, which is supposedly set by the atomic clock signal, set itself back an hour this morning. If I hadn't noticed, I'd have been an hour late for work tomorrow.
