If we did it year round the sun wouldn't rise until like 9am during the heart of winter.  I'd hate that.  

Waaaaaaaaahhhhhh....

I do disagree with the time loss occurring at 2am on a Sunday.  How about 2pm on a Friday?  That'd work.

Scott, I'm getting the feeling that you're not fond of DST, is that about right?

Yeah, it's way better that the sun rises at 8, when I'm at work, and sets at 4:30.... when I'm at work.

Basically already the case here even with the shift back to standard time (up 8:50 down 16:38 jan 1st). And of course even worse further North. Could do with DST year round, light at evening is so much more useful for me.

Seems like you're jumping to conclusions here.

If we didn't have the DST switch then we wouldn't get these threads, so yeah, it needs to stay!

this thread always brings a smile to my face.

 

Please Scott for the sake of all our sanity never do shift work.  however as someone who's personal clock changes by 8 hours ever week, I'm just going to laugh at your 1 hour adjustment.   You have it easy.

I didn't truly start hating daylight savings until the first time it turned a 12 hour shift into a 13 hour shift.

Scott - have another kid and then a random shift in one hour means nothing to your sleep schedule.  Stop trying to bully everyone else into your belief....

I learned (reminded) about DST this weekend and immediately came here looking for this post.

I am not disappoint. Thank you, Scot. :cheers:

I figure my annual fit over the stupidity of DST also helps people remember it's coming.  

I still remember the idiots talking about how "we're getting an extra hour of sunlight".  No we're not.  DST does nothing to how long we will have the sun visible in the sky.  Morons:

Except people are talking about the amount of sunlight they experience during non-work hours, usually in the evening.  On Monday evening, I have an extra hour of daylight to walk the dog, to allow the kids to play outdoors, to go to the park, etc.  Instead of these activities ending around 6pm, they'll end around 7pm.  More time with the sunlight in the evenings.  That's obviously what people mean when they talk about extra hour of sunlight.
