Edited on Sat Mar-07-09 07:27 PM by IntravenousDemilo
To be frank, I see no sense in it, in this 24/7 world. Once we've moved our clocks forward tonight, we should leave them there.

Indiana, Arizona, Hawaii, and my home province of Saskatchewan have gotten along just fine without the pointless "innovation" of Daylight Saving Time.


ETA: It has just come to my attention that Indiana succumbed a few years ago to DST. So more rot has set in...

Dear God. Another night with less than adequate sleep.

3. It blows.
I just wish all states used it or all states didn't. This crap of some changing and some not makes life damn confusing because I have relatives in all time zones. Who's two hours and who's the same now? Drives me nuts.

4. I don't wait until the end of the day to change the time.
As soon as I got up this morning, I changed all our clocks ahead. It really helps with the 'jet-lag' effect of losing that hour.
