I have just started a new job. It is 'orrible 'orrible 'orrible. They made me get up at half five this morning to be in on time for a FIFTEEN HOUR shift.

with my youth frittering away in this depressing fashion, i say praise be to them what tamper with time! Without them, I wouldn't have been able to stay up till HALF ELEVEN last night. yeah!

Yah, that's a major improvement. I get really depressed when I wake up and it's still dark outside--I just want to stay in bed and eat cookies all day.

I didn't get home until almost 2pm last night (my date went very well, if anyone is interested), and with the awareness that I need to be up for work tomorrow, being able to get close to eight hours and still get up at 9am was very convenient. We should stop doing that spring forward bit, and just have this going back stuff, but do it every weekend! A perfect idea!

I really don't understand people's (eg Jess's) problem with getting up early. I am currently awake at 3.05am, which would suck if uni didn't start at 2.15pm tomorrow! Plus it's just a screening of Run Lola Run! :)

The only thing I don't like is that it gets dark so early! It seems to cast a pall over everything, making things kind of gloomy. I really can't complain about an extra hour of sleep, though.

One of my colleagues says he gets up at 4am every day. He is a sikh, and apparently he praised for a a few hours every morning. I try to resist pointing and giggling, in a largely unsuccessful attempt to pretend respect for a person's religion.

we went ON daylight savings at the start of october which was interesting for me 'cause it actually meant i got to get up later, sort of. my son wakes at 5-6am, so im used to that but with daylight savings it was 7am woohoo i even felt like we had slept in! haha.

Daylight savings really sucked last night, because I stayed up till midnight so I could call my friend in Indiana, but instead of being 7am like it usually is there when I call, it was only 6am. My friend said that she though it was Satan calling.

wow, The Wikipedia features so many interesting and potentially untrue facts about this fascist lie of a proletariat yoke

A 2008 study found that although male suicide rates rise in the weeks after the spring transition, the relationship weakened greatly after adjusting for season.[75] A 2008 Swedish study found that heart attacks were significantly more common the first three weekdays after the spring transition, and significantly less common the first weekday after the autumn transition.[76] The government of Kazakhstan cited health complications due to clock shifts as a reason for abolishing DST in 2005.[77]

In the mid-1980s, Clorox (parent of Kingsford Charcoal) and 7-Eleven provided the primary funding for the Daylight Saving Time Coalition behind the 1987 extension to U.S. DST, and both Idaho senators voted for it based on the premise that during DST fast-food restaurants sell more French fries, which are made from Idaho potatoes;[3] in 2005, the Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association and the National Association of Convenience Stores successfully lobbied for the 2007 extension to U.S. DST.[72]

Daylight saving has caused controversy since it began.[1] Winston Churchill argued that it enlarges "the opportunities for the pursuit of health and happiness among the millions of people who live in this country".[86] Robertson Davies, however, detected "the bony, blue-fingered hand of Puritanism, eager to push people into bed earlier, and get them up earlier, to make them healthy, wealthy and wise in spite of themselves",[87] and wags have dubbed it "Daylight Slaving Time".[88]

oh you melodramatic wags

Mr. Que, Monday, 15 March 2010 18:28 (seven years ago) Permalink

In principle yes, but my first DST morning and the pleasure I derived from it was grounded in the fact that my flight home last night was late, too late for the last bus and the taxi queue was long and cabs few. Ended up with less than five hours sleep last night and the alarm woke me up to dark grey misery.

More of a pittsburgh problem. In general DST means awake to see the sunrise for the next month or so and my living room has east facing windows which makes me happy.

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Monday, 15 March 2010 18:34 (seven years ago) Permalink

I took advantage of DST a coupla years ago to sleep in and show up for work an hour late & real faux-apologetic, knowing that my supervisor would be amused at my boneheadedness (and that I'd work late to make up for it)! It worked jsut like I planned, but it's not something I'd dare repeat.

Also, it may be light later, but it WAS light on my way to work and now it will be dark for another month.

Urgh. I thought I'd split the difference by going to bed half an hour earlier than usual (or half an hour later by summer time), got my 8 hours, don't remember any trouble sleeping... so why do I feel like a zombie with a fuck-off headache today? Would not have booked a driving lesson for 10:30am if I'd remembered at time of booking that clocks would change last night.

(PS I love having nice long, light evenings so summer time is fine by me really but the change is a jolt)

New research shows that springing ahead for daylight saving time may do more to our bodies than a triple shot of espresso can fix.

When we set our clocks forward for daylight savings, some researchers say the disruption in circadian rhythms and minor sleep deprivation is enough to trigger some people to have a heart attack.

my sleep schedule is always fucked up anyway, so it doesn't really matter to me. i am v. much against the principle of losing hours of sleep, tho

Daylight savings really confused the heck out of me this time. I was on a road trip with my family from Texas to LA with stops along the way in Arizona and Las Vegas. We were trying to hit these locations at particular times, but with DST, time zone changes, and the fact that Arizona does not observe DST, we kept getting extremely confused about what time it was at any given point and what time it would be at our destinations. I'm looking forward to staying in one time zone now that I'm on my way home.

Just now got it to where we all get up with daylight outside. Won't happen for another month or so after the time change.

Also, this is going just going to put the sun lower in the sky on my commute, meaning I'll more time to be blinded by it as I travel east.

DST is an important milestone for us with extreme seasonal depression. It's something to look forward to, it gives us hope.

Since Sunday I've felt a marked change for the better. I had an immediate improvement in my outlook and I've been doing things I want/need to do each evening and day instead of barely hanging on. A lot of important and fun shit has gone undone since December.

a girl with colitis (Je55e), Wednesday, 11 March 2015 12:09 (two years ago) Permalink

I would be all for making DST the year-round standard. Standard time is needlessly difficult, especially for those of us on the very eastern edge of a time zone. Sunset at 4:15 is bad and if it's cloudy, it can get fully dark by 3:30. That's really hard for me.

Every evening this week has been active and felt like blessings. Like a reprieve.

TBPF, DST coincides with the weather going from 0/teens w/ blistering wind to 40s (57° today!!). Decent weather would make me the early dark feel more benign.

I've been waking up (without an alarm) at 6:30 every day this week instead of 7:30-8. I credit the remission of the long winter depression.

Time zones approximate 15° orange slices of the globe. Under normal, non-DLS time, if you're at 0°, 15°, 30°, 45°, 60° (etc) longitude, at the center of each abstract time zone, the sun is most directly overhead at local noon.

DLS shifts an hour from morning to the evening, and was lobbied for by ice cream vendors and the like who benefited from more hours of post-labor sunlit leisure.

Beginning tomorrow, this sign in Indiana will be wrong again for the next eight months.

the law should be that civil twilight should never start before 5:30 pm (in Chicago at least) and if Trump could make that happen, then he has my vote in 2020

I hate 4:15 sunset (and on full darkness at 3:00 pm on cloudy days)

when do you like your daylight?

Je55e, Sunday, 12 March 2017 04:41 (eight months ago) Permalink

between 10 and 4 will do, thanks

back in the day i used to play pickup basketball after work, for which daylight is useful, but now let us plunge this planet in eternal darkness imo

I hear you. I've been averse to the concept of craving daylight. I used to think it was a sign of being a simp.

I'm the opposite: the pain of the loss of an hour is offset by the coming of 4 blessed months when it won't be below 0°C in the daytime, for the most part.

And for us, it used to not be so much of a problem back when we fell back in mid-October. But for the last week, I've been waking up the kids while the streetlights outside are still turned on.

Between that, 80º weather and World Series that don't finish until November, I've been feeling pretty discombobulated already. Lord knows how I'll feel tomorrow.

But also keep in mind that tonight will be magical for one reason.

The Central Time Zone will fall back at 2 a.m. In other words, the clock will go from 0159 to 0100.

Since the Mountain Time Zone won't fall back until 2 a.m., it will also be 0100 in those areas. So the contiguous states will really only have three time zones for 59 minutes.

Which also means that the time in portions of Oregon (a state on the West Coast) and portions of Florida (a state on the East Coast) will be the same.

Seeing how DST is now seven months of the year, I think it should be called Standard Time. We could rename current Standard Time to something like Darkness Redistribution Time.

Totally selfish, I know, but I don't care what time the sun comes up because I work from home, but I hate it getting pitch black outside at 5pm because that only leaves the weekend for me to do shit in my yard. Fuck s standard time.

I appreciate more light in the morning, being an early riser, but then it goes away quickly anyway. Annoying.
