Does that mean it gets darker sooner? Because if it is, I'm not going to do it.

It doesnt really keep changing. They changed it a few years ago, although i have no idea why? They basically made the Window bigger. We used to change time in Late Oct and Mid April.

Can't we release some oil from the Strategic Oil reserves or something, and get this DST thing averted?

In a world where the lights are on 24-7, this is an excellent question. It's so pointless to do this anymore. Seriously, I'd love to see them get rid of it.

I suppose in some third world country it still has some value.

I thought we had it because we have 24-7 lights. Is there some other reason? My assumption was that we did it for energy savings so it's light when people are sitting around doing playstation and dancing to hi-fis and listening to the Green Hornet on the radio machine.

I don't understand why we started doing it to begin with. It's stupid.

Seems back before the world ran 24-7, they did it to allow for more daylight later in the day for people to be able to work later, or something like that. But nowadays, when it gets dark, the lights go on. When it's light out, the lights go off. Not saving any electricity that I can think of. It's an outdated idea as far as I can tell.

No, they just give all the money to wellfare, and call it a Farm Bill.

So why fall back? Why shouldn't we always be DST? The biggest reason for falling back that I heard is so kids aren't waiting at bus stops in the dark, which is stupid.

It's been proven that it doesn't save power and it's a hazard to people that are groggy because their internal clocks haven't caught up yet. We still do it because of inertia.

Did you ever hear the phrase "There are no stupid questions"?

You have successfully disproved that theory.

If you can easily ascertain the answer but chose not to, it's a stupid question.

My stove and microwave don't change. And I have this old school clock that hangs on the wall. Your comment is stupid.

The only ones that come to mind for me are the microwave, and the ones in my truck and van. I don't recall having to mess with the one in the wife's car so it must change automatically.

Quite a few actually. Especially since they changed it just a couple years ago and now electronics change during the wrong week.

That's a good question. We got from Daylight Savings Time to Standard Time, so it seems like you shouldn't move away from something called Standard Time. But why is it Standard Time? Is there some reason that Standard Time is Standard Time? Is it so the sun will be at its highest spot at noon?

If you'd read the thread, you'd notice that I looked up the answer immediately. Before anyone else even posted.

Your assertion that I chose not to look it up is incorrect. If you could easily research your own assertion, but chose not to, your statement is stupid.

Shit, I dont think I've ever set a microwave or range clock.

I do have one analog clock. Its in my car.

So is standard time defined so that noon is the sun's high point? I kind of think that's true, but I don't know.

DST ends this Sunday at 2 AM, don't listen to all those saying Nov. 4th



















Unless you live in the states in which case, I believe Nov. 4 is correct.

Daylight Saving Time benefits retailing, sports, and other activities that exploit sunlight

Daylight Saving Time (DST)—also summer time in most countries including in British English and European official terminology (see Terminology)—is the practice of temporarily advancing clocks during the summertime so that afternoons have more daylight and mornings have less. Typically clocks are adjusted forward one hour near the start of spring and are adjusted backward in autumn.Modern DST was first proposed in 1895 by George Vernon Hudson.Many countries have used it since then; details vary by location and change occasionally.
The practice has been both praised and criticized.Adding daylight to afternoons benefits retailing, sports, and other activities that exploit sunlight after working hours,but causes problems for farming, evening entertainment and other occupations tied to the sun.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 differ greatly, and research about how DST currently affects energy use is limited or contradictory.
DST clock shifts present other challenges. They complicate timekeeping, and can disrupt meetings, travel, billing, recordkeeping, medical devices, heavy equipment,and sleep patterns.Software can often adjust computer clocks automatically, but this can be limited and error-prone, particularly when DST protocols are changed

Although not punctual in the modern sense, ancient civilizations adjusted daily schedules to the sun more flexibly than modern DST does, often dividing daylight into twelve hours regardless of day length, so that each daylight hour was longer during summer.For example, Roman water clocks had different scales for different months of the year: at Rome's latitude the third hour from sunrise, hora tertia, started by modern standards at 09:02 solar time and lasted 44 minutes at the winter solstice, but at the summer solstice it started at 06:58 and lasted 75 minutes.After ancient times, equal-length civil hours eventually supplanted unequal, so civil time no longer varies by season. Unequal hours are still used in a few traditional settings, such as some Mount Athos monasteriesand all Jewish ceremonies.


Ummm thx Google..I think
