Well at least they did shorten it. I would think that is the first step to eliminating it.

Have you ever lived somewhere that doesn't do the time change? It is a pain in the butt to figure out what time a show is on when all you are given is the east coast time. Or try to remember if you are on the same time as the zone next to you or not. It was nice not having to change but you still had to pay attention to it in regards to the rest of the country.

From Wiki: The practice is controversial. Adding daylight to afternoons benefits retailing, sports, and other activities that exploit sunlight after working hours,but causes problems for farming, entertainment and other occupations tied to the sun. Traffic fatalities are reduced when there is extra afternoon daylight; its effect on health and crime is less clear. Although an early goal of DST was to reduce evening usage of incandescent lighting, formerly a primary use of electricity, modern heating and cooling usage patterns greatly differ, and research about how DST currently affects energy use is limited and often contradictory.

Description

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/8/8c/Machine_elf_imp.jpg/200px-Machine_elf_imp.jpg (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Machine_elf_imp.jpg)
At about minute or two of a DMT trip, according to McKenna, one may burst through a chrysanthemum (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chrysanthemum)-like mandala, and find:
There's a whole bunch of entities waiting on the other side, saying "How wonderful that you're here! You come so rarely! We're so delighted to see you!"
They're like jewelled self-dribbling basketballs and there are many of them and they come pounding toward you and they will stop in front of you and vibrate, but then they do a very disconcerting thing, which is they jump into your body and then they jump back out again and the whole thing is going on in a high-speed mode where you're being presented with thousands of details per second and you can't get a hold on [them ...] and these things are saying "Don't give in to astonishment", which is exactly what you want to do. You want to go nuts with how crazy this is, and they say "Don't do that. Pay attention to what we're doing".
What they're doing is making objects with their voices, singing structures into existence. They offer things to you, saying "Look at this! Look at this!" and as your attention goes towards these objects you realise that what you're being shown is impossible. It's not simply intricate, beautiful and hard to manufacture, it's impossible to make these things. The nearest analogy would be the Fabergé eggs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faberg%C3%A9_egg), but these things are like the toys that are scattered around the nursery inside a U.F.O., celestial toys, and the toys themselves appear to be somehow alive and can sing other objects into existence, so what's happening is this proliferation of elf gifts, which are moving around singing, and they are saying "Do what we are doing" and they are very insistent, and they say "Do it! Do it! Do it!" and you feel like a bubble inside your body beginning to move up toward your mouth, and when it comes out it isn't sound, it's vision. You discover that you can pump "stuff" out of your mouth by singing, and they're urging you to do this. They say "That's it! That's it! Keep doing it!".
We're now at minute 4.5 [of the trip] and you speak in a kind of glossolalia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glossolalia). There is a spontaneous outpouring of syntax unaccompanied by what is normally called "meaning". After a minute or so of this the whole thing begins to collapse in on itself and they begin to physically move away from you. Usually their final shot is that they wave goodbye and say "Deja vu! Deja vu!".

Or, just leave it DST all year. It's the changing that I don't like.

It was nice living in the Philippines ... the only change we had to make was adjusting our thinking of what time it was back here.

How so? Most farmers I know don't like it. They go by the sun and not by the clock, anyway!!!

One of the arguments for going back to standard time is because kids have to go to school in the dark. Seems like schools could just change their schedule.

As I said above ... just keep it the same all year. I'm okay with either.

FWIW, I live in the extreme western part of the Eastern Time Zone, so from December to March kids are going to school in the dark DST or Standard. Conversely, they all have daylight after school.
Go two hours or so and get into the extreme eastern part of the Central Time Zone and it's exactly the opposite. It's a lose-lose situation, Standard or DST.
