All this going all over the house resetting clocks is driving me nuts, Personally that idiot should have never been introduced to a clock, let alone daylight savings time.

That's one of the least irritating things he has screwed up,I'm alot more pissed off over having to buy another dome

But, with an hour less dark everyday, we can pay for the dome with electricity savings.

call me a simpleton but I just do not understand the concept that DST gives us an extra hour of daytime.
As a matter of fact... it gives us NOTHING!!!!
All it does is move it from morning to evening and then back again....
Excuse me but a good alarm clock does the same thing!!!!

Splitting hairs over an hour and changing the clocks is BS. Getting on the same page as most of the country is paying off.
I disagree with DST but I do agree with playing ball if that is what it takes.
If you want to end DST call washington and have them kill it nationally so everyone can stay on the same page. I am sure they can figure out how much DST actually costs. We all know it doesn't save money or energy.

You can hang the dome on his head but do not forget to hang it also on Peterson's ass.

I will be thinking about all of you next summer when I'm outside enjoying one of many summertime activities at 9PM. I love DST. I used to argue with the anti-DST people but what's the point, I'm too busy enjoying it
Link Posted: 11/5/2007 3:32:18 AM EDT
I don't really mind it at all. I especially like the late daylight nights when we change back.

People that say that don't have kids. Try to tell them that it is bed time when it is still light outside The thing that pisses me off about DST is that wonderful hour of sleep that I lost. I swear I was jet lagged for 6 months.

You're right, I don't have kids. But people in the other 48 States somehow manage to get their kids to bed. What's not to like about having an extra hour of daylight? And also, it's not very convenient when the rest of the country is on DST and Indiana isn't - but then again, most of the hillbillies in Indiana could care less.
Link Posted: 11/5/2007 1:03:08 PM EDT
Fucking Pussies, I lived in North Dakota as a kid and we all loved DLS in the summer, adults included. It got lighter earlier and stayed light even later then it does down here. Of course winter days were much shorter too.

I still go up there around end of June (longest day of the year) for an annual fishing trip.

All that aside, it is a global economy and we were not even in sync with our own country. All my career I have had to deal with people in all time zones. MAJOR CLUSTER FUCK, none of them could ever remember what time zone we were in on any given day, you had to do it for them. Don't miss that at all.

Dude.....The comment was in jest. Don't be so pissy. Did you not see the smilies?
Link Posted: 11/5/2007 2:37:07 PM EDT
Get the satellite clocks. They do it on there own without complaining. But seriously, back when this was being proposed, long before Mitch was in, I heard a local state trooper on the radio here in Fort Wayne indicating that it would cut crime because bag guys like to work in the dark, and it would get dark later, Duh?
Link Posted: 11/5/2007 2:45:58 PM EDT
Gee Now that's funny right there.
National headlines:
DST cuts crime by 16.4% because the sun stays up later and the crooks have to go to bed whuile it's still light outside!!!!

DST gives us one extra useful hour every day and I love it!
Thank you Mitch!

Our governor did not invent DST, folks. Besides, I really do not see it as such huge of a deal.

I have lived in many places in the world and Indiana is the only place I have seen that did not have DST. I found that odd.

Now, I have three kids, but still enjoy DST; main reason being that there still light for me to work on extra projects after the kids go to bed.

If you're jet-lagged from an hour time change, you need to travel more.
Link Posted: 11/5/2007 7:05:16 PM EDT
I don't like it.

I would rather have that hour of daylight in the morning instead of having it be daylight past 9:30pm.
Link Posted: 11/6/2007 4:48:37 AM EDT
Wow don't you people have to reset your clock when the power surges. I have to reset mine at least once a month here in Indy.

Not only does the US have DST but so does allot of the rest of the world. Are we really so stupid in this state that it is that hard to change a clock twice a year.

While we are at it why don't we insist the there are only 10 inches in a foot. I know the rest of the world say's it is 12 but 10 is much easier.
Link Posted: 11/6/2007 5:10:34 AM EDT
It's not the DST that bothers me down here in Evansville. It's the fact that we're ALWAYS on a different time than the rest of the state now. I don't understand why we can't be on the same time as the rest of Indiana. It occasionally messes with us with us when I meet with friends to go hunting at 6:00 and it gets messed up- Was that your time or my time?

Central? Hell no brother, you want to be as far west in your time zone as possible, that gives you the latest sun light possible in the evening.
Link Posted: 11/6/2007 11:38:07 AM EDT
I like being in Central as much as everybody complains. It makes since I live in Eville that the nearest big cities are Nashville (2 hrs) and St. Louis (2 1/2) and their both on Central.

Mitch Daniels thought he could get everyone to play along and all he did was make it worse.

Thats why I say DITCH MITCH!

You must have some easy life-if the worst thing you have to do is to change the time on a few clocks. I wish my life were so.

We are on CST in the Evansville area..I believe we are the only part of the state that is.

This thread is obviously full of late sleepers who prefer that it stays dark for an additional hour every morning.
Link Posted: 11/10/2007 6:07:45 AM EDT
I think leaving it up to the individual counties to decide what zone they want to be in was the biggest mistake. Indiana is in Central Time Zone, the line is between us and Ohio. Why do we have to run on Ohio time? What makes them so special?

Liked it better before, when it was 8:00 pm then it was 8:00 pm all year long.

I bought me a different truck a few months ago. All was well with my new (used) truck...Until DST expired this year. I don't know how to set the clock on this truck. It will just have to be an hour off till spring.

I've been on DST my whole life, 31 yrs on the East coast and 20 here in the NW corner. Every car I've owned with a clock has been right only six months out of the year.

Tell me about it. Having to get up at 4:30am and going to sleep at 8:30-9:00 and there's kids running around and screaming outside until 10:00. Oh well, waking them up on the Harley when I left in the morning made it a little better.

And then there's living right on the time zone line. Switching back and forth throughout the day fucking blows.

I love DST! That extra hour of daylight keeps me outside and off the couch longer after work. More daylight time for fishing and grilling out, the important things!

Well to all of you golfers and lovers of DST time what about the rest of us ,the people that work 2nd and 3rd shifts , it does squat for us , TV shows are over when we get home ,its either dark or the middle of the morning, we get Letterman ,infomercials or Ophra, no golf , grass is too wet to mow and less time to spend with our family, and it saves money? How?
Tell what is the difference for Eastern Standard Time and Central Daylight Savings Time?
If you work in Indy and do business In Shitcago you used to be on the same time in the summer and now you're an hour ahead, and that helped what?

You've brought up an interesting point. It would be nice if employers would adjust the start/stop times of each shift
