I hate it. Makes the evenings darker. The date we do it changed a few years ago. Supposed to save us energy or some BS. Instead it costs companies billions to recode computer programs to make that change. Problems persist still. Lets just readjust in spring and leave it there.

It always throws me off. I spend a lot of time outdoors and get used to knowing what time it is by the light. Instead of gradual changes, they change it by an hour. Its not even 7PM and i'm ready to go to bed. I woke up at 5:40am and had the feeling I was running behind all day. i hate it.

I don't love it or hate it. I just wish they'd pick a time and stick with it.

Move it half a fucking hour and leave it the FUCK alone.

It wasn't so bad until congress fucked around with it and made it longer.

No it doesn't. It makes them brighter.

You do realize that we just changed back to standard time now, right?

No problem with leaving the nationwide *time* constant (allowing for zones of course), but changing local school starting/closing times to seasonally adjust for daylight conditions. I say split the difference and meet each hour halfway and call it good.

Eventually businesses and such would adjust to seasonal times if they so desired, but it would be their choice, not some nationally mandated invented hour.

Kill it with fire. No more DST please.

Hate it

During standard time, if I go straight from work to the range, I can get in maybe 40 minutes of range time after work. Now, it's almost pitch ass dark when I leave work
Link Posted: 11/2/2009 2:04:35 PM EST
I love it, I wish they'd just keep the DST time all year round.

In the summer, who honestly minds that extra hour of daylight? Are you guys in a mood to go to bed earlier?

That alone makes it worth it to me. I do wish it was standardized so there's no "some in/some out", but I fucking LOVE the extra sunshine.
Link Posted: 11/2/2009 2:04:40 PM EST
For the haters- why don't we just have one national time since it's so hard for you to adjust a few clocks?

WE ARE NOW ON STANDARD TIME.

DST is also known as "summer time" (I believe the European time zones that use DST refer to it as such officially.)

I can't get over the sheer arrogance of the federal government thinking it can control time.

I think what he was referring to was that when we change to standard time in the fall, it suddenly gets darker and hour earlier.

Being from Indiana, I was used to not changing our clocks.... then the stupids in the Statehouse changed their minds and voted for DST, I absolutely hate it. Not to mention it has been proven to actually WASTE money, not save it.

Daylight savings time SUCKS ASS. It needs to be ended. Permanently. Either it's standard time all the time, or daylight savings time all the time, but pick one time and leave it alone.

Get up an hour earlier. Voila.

Yep, this. It doesn't save anything.

It's fucking retarded. Keep DST and stop dicking with clocks twice a year.

Go fuck yourself, G.V. Hudson.

Maybe I'm looking at it like a simpleton but it gave me an extra hour to sleep this week so I'm happy.

My schedule doesn't change by the season, nor do my working hours. I enjoy, therefore that extra bit of daytime. Sorry, I do and no amount of "I hate it" will make it less enjoyable. I dig it.

I like it better than Standard time.

The time remaining consistent throughout the year has absolutely zero effect on my (or your) opportunity to enjoy the summer.

Well, on the bright side, it was almost light when I went for my run this morning.

On the other hand, it's almost dark no (4:25 PM)

It's bad because it confuses the farm animals. I mean, they don't really know what's going on without the roosters to tell them.

Would rather have the light in the evenings than in the mornings.

Pick a time and stick to it...case closed.

The winter timing is actually the correct time. In the summer is when it's an hour off.

FWIW, i love it in the fall because I get an extra hour of sleep, I hate it in the spring because I lose an hour of sleep.

But overall, I'd rather we just did away with it.
Link Posted: 11/2/2009 2:30:16 PM EST
Do not like......After work cannot do anything outdoors or hunt but for an hour or slightly more.More time for chores in rural areas too.As for school kids no big deal as they got the lights on in schools whether daylight or not anyway and as far as savings little or none as what lights are used in the dark now will get used in the morning..leave it alone every spring and fall

Scratch my vote then, I didn't realize now is standard time....

Give me the extra sunlight! Coming home from work and barely being able to take the dog out before dark sucks.

Ever notice how you feel out of sorts for a week or so when the time changes, especially "springing ahead" in springtime? The effect on your body is the same as jet lag, takes maybe ten days to adjust to it. As for me, I'm no fan of daylight savings time. The sun should be south at noon, not at 1pm.

Actually, the sun is due south at noon just four times a year(disregarding DST). At risk of actually LEARNING something, check out the equation of time. Along that line, ever wonder what the figure 8 on a globe or map means? You can learn about it here (it's got the word 'anal' in it, maybe that'll pique your curiosity).

It has it's upsides. Driving in the morning is okay now since I don't need headlights or high beams. I can see the school kids in the morning that walk on the side of the road just in case one falls into the road (it happens a lot in FL). However, it's dark at 6pm.

I was confused on what the OP was actually asking.. I personally love DST - I hate it getting dark at 430 to 5 now.. Those poor alaskans - I dont see how they handle winter..

We should stay on Daylight Savings Time.

There's no reason to live in a world were it gets dark at 6pm.


EDIT: Poll fail since nobody realizes what DST is.
