Arizona doesn't.

Honestly, DST is a retarded idea.

supposedly the fact that people are awake earlier saves energy or some such thing... but yes it is retarded.

OK, so say I went out and killed a bunch of people between now at 2am, it's cool because at 2am it would get erased from time. Right?

I've got a list written in lipstick and 24 minutes to finish it. BRB.

I always wind up working on these weekends.

Oh well, at least the computers and phones around here set themselves.

And, my new Casio Atomic Watch will also set itself! w00t!

There goes my budget for the week. Stupid me forgot about the end of DST, and I have eleven guys working now until 4AM. That means I'm going to have to pay each of them an extra hour I didn't plan on. Doh!z

The truly retarded aspect of it is that so many people are so completely sold on the concept.

In reality, DST should be the other way around - days get shorter in winter, and longer in summer. Wouldn't it be nice to make them more even?

All that phoney bullshit about how "Longer days offer longer planting times" or "There's more light so it's more energy efficient" or "It makes the streets safe for kids." All typical liberal "change our perception of reality so that we can feel better about something" bullshit.

Really DST is a dopey-fuck idea, and it has been robbing me of sleep every friggin' summer since I was born.


At the back of the Daylight Saving scheme I detect the bony, blue-fingered hand of Puritanism, eager to push people into bed earlier, and get them up earlier, to make them healthy, wealthy and wise in spite of themselves." (Robertson Davies, The Diary of Samuel Marchbanks, 1947, XIX, Sunday.)

Wasn't Indiana kindof bizarre in that some of their counties changed, and some didn't? I seem to recall changing my watch several times on a trip from Cincinatti to Indianapolis.

I knew it. It's Bushes fault!

Daylight Saving Time Extended

On Monday August 8, 2005 President Bush signed into law a broad energy bill (Energy Policy Act of 2005) that will extend Daylight Saving Time by four weeks in 2007. The provisions of the bill call for Daylight Saving Time to begin three weeks earlier on the second Sunday in March and end one week later on the first Sunday in November. Currently Daylight Saving Time starts on the first Sunday in April and ends on the last Sunday in October.

In 2007 when the provisions take effect Daylight Saving Time will begin on March 11 and end on November 4, 2007.

"Hey, did you oversleep"?

"No, werent we going to meet at 0800"?

"Yes, its 0815"

"No, its 0715, you forgot to set your clocks back didnt you"?

"Oh shit"
