Daylight savings time in the USA causes all kinds of health and mental problems for lots of humans, the whole damn thing should be eradicated. The whole concept of time should be eliminated as well.

Works perfectly here in Aussie, and it's only unpopular in the knuckle-dragger parts of 'the deep nawf'.

? "There knuckles almost reach the ground!"

More than that, real research done here shows that the benefits far outweigh the slight downside - for some people - of the first week of DST and the first week back on ST.

my usual forced wake up time @ 4am will be really 3am.

nothing is getting done tomorrow, I'll warm my seat in my office, but don't expect me to be productive :)

 

One positive, you can play tennis an hour later before it gets dark. You've got that going for you^, posted on March 12, 2017 at 22:13:30

1:30am have to be up in an hour and a half :(

 

But, that would involve exercise, which he doesn't do., posted on March 12, 2017 at 23:06:48

why are you still up posting at 1:30? You're wake up is likely to be forced if you're not asleep before 10:00 p.m. at the latest.

Because it's all everyone elses / someone elses but HIS, fault.

severe insomnia, caused by the system I was born into,

to counter-act Timbo's thoughts, I didn't come up with this whole matrix you want me to believe is my fault.

An extra hour of daylight in the evening is useful. An extra hour in the morning, not so much.

That's a good, positive outlook, FenderLover, one I try to have too, when my weekend to work falls on a spring forward weekend.

But it's the fall back change, which makes for a thirteen hour night for us, that I don't enjoy. For some reason that one extra hour feels like ten extra.

Quite frankly, I always laugh a little when I hear the news reports of how disruptive the time change is to people's frail psyches. Not because I don't believe that it isn't, but to what degree? Try our schedule of working a couple of twelve hour days, having a few days off (unless there's mandatory overtime, of course), then switching to three twelve hour nights. We get 48 hours to sleep that off (or 24 if made to work overtime), and we're back on days for a couple more. The rotation continues like that, twelve hour shifts, days to nights, and back to days, all in the same week, week after week. Their theory is that your Circadian rhythms never adjust, and that this is somehow better for us.

Losing or gaining one hour every six months seems like a barefoot walk in the park by comparison. Just trying to give you a bit of perspective there, Bullet. I wouldn't want your job's stress, or the stress of living in New York City. Nobody I know has it easy.

The first three words that open the book The Road Less Traveled are "Live is difficult". Happier people are aware of that. They don't expect things to be easy.

I need to re-read that book. It's been a long time.

Hang in there, bullet.

In my youth, I struggled with this, and finally got it right: It's Daylight Saving Time, not Daylight Savings Time.

Still, I wonder where all that "saved" daylight goes. Do we earn interest on it? Do we get a tax deduction for saving it? Do we all have a government account which keeps track of how much daylight we've saved?

:)

Have they been falsely inflated? Are they real or "fake"?

The top two rating agencies have them at AAA+

Everything is fine with it, should it collapse my brother is currently shorting it.

Y'all think this is funny. But, have you thought about all the people who don't have a Daylight Saving Account (DSA)? What are they gonna do when they get old, and have no daylight saved?

From what I hear the new replacement plan "The American Daylight Plan" will be better than the one it replaces, however the latest info suggests the plan won't start saving for some time, hopefully before 2018.
