I hear on the local news that the next time we set our clocks to "spring forward", we will actually fall back again for the first time. Is this true? Why? Wont it kill summer?

what?

I know they are extending DST by 2 weeks on each end... so We'll fall back 2 weeks latter than normal and spring forward 2 weeks sooner than normal.

but they arn't switching them as far as I know.

If I understood the brodcast right, they said we wont spring forward at all this spring. Insted, we will fall back another hour in the spring.

Actually, its 3 weeks earlier in the Spring (now late winter) and 1 week in the Fall.

Hope there is a patch for Windows. It's gonna screw everything up.

My head hurts!

Forward, back, forward back. When I'm appointed king, I'm going to have everyone set their clocks one half hour in between the two and do away with DST all together.

I thought the rumour was in 2008 we would stay on Standard time no more daylight time?
Link Posted: 10/30/2006 6:49:50 AM EST
If I ever aquire god-like powers, Im just gonna extend daytime itself alltogether.

If we do fall back another hour in the spring... will that make it dawn in June at 4:am? Or will it be daylight in June at like 10:00pm?

If my questions dont make sense forgive me. I just came off midnight shift and Im trying to stay up all day. I just finished watching back to back episodes of Charmed on TNT and now Im on ARFCOM til my girls come back on again this evening on TNT.
I went trout fishing for a little bit this AM at day brake but didnt get a nibble and it was fucking cold on the creek bank.
I know Im rambling but damn... I dont know what else to do.
I remember laying in a fox whole once , durning AT with the ANG... I remember being so damn tired. The weight of the kevlar was pulling my face down. I remember looking at a blade of grass a few feet in fron of me and the damn thing moved twords me. It seemed to ZOOM in and out. One second it was ten feet away, the next it was right up in my face. All I could do was giggle. Im not quite that tired right now, but Im getting close.

All this math hurts my head....

Does anyone actually LIKE daylight savings time?

I have never met a person who did. Neither did my late father.

We made sort of a hobby out of trying to find if anyone was actually in favor of changing time forwards and backwards, forwards and backwards. Never met a living soul who favored it.

Now some folks like the idea of keeping things in the "summer" configuration, and that kind of makes sense.

But all the readjustment to the different times? Does ANYone like the way it's set up?

I like being duped into getting an extra hour of sleep.

What is their reasoning for changing it? If they're going to do anything with it, they should just get rid of it.

It makes some sense in terms of energy savings I guess, but I've never found anyone happy about it either.
