It has rained and rained and rained this week. Haven't seen blue sky since last week. Plus, I was sick.

What I'm saying is, that extra hour of daylight in the evening is going to be like a prison break.

I dislike it, because it is the advent of a punishing six months of summer

It's not for another two weeks in Europe. So that means the deluge of complaints and queries that accompanies LA getting into the office is just going to hit me at 4pm instead of 5pm.

Springbreak is an hour shorter.

It's extra confusing this year because I'm traveling between Austin, Indianapolis, and Chicago. Keeping track of the various time zones is a nightmare.

The phones at work have been an hour early all week. We use the cutting edge technology of 2004, apparently.

Who do I talk to about never going back to standard time after the DST change this year?

DST is superior in every way.
Standard is dumb and it sucks.

Supercreditor (Dr Morbius), Saturday, 11 March 2017 14:01 (nine months ago) Permalink

I'll say this: With the way this year has already been going, DST likely won't feel so disruptive this time around.

pplains, Saturday, 11 March 2017 16:12 (nine months ago) Permalink

the only thing good about DST is that it prevents the sky getting light at 4am in june

The thing I'm proudest of Dubya for doing as president is lengthening the period of time the US is under DST each year.

If jobs were 7-3 rather than 9-5, would many care for DST?

Sanpaku, Saturday, 11 March 2017 23:30 (nine months ago) Permalink

granted: not many are 9-5 anymore.

i can never understand? which time is "standard" and why

assawoman bay (harbl), Sunday, 12 March 2017 01:52 (eight months ago) Permalink

i can't figure out which one is normal. all i want to do is sleep all the time so i just treat each transition as i am entering a new period of hell.

assawoman bay (harbl), Sunday, 12 March 2017 01:54 (eight months ago) Permalink

Standard now somehow exists for less than 50% of the year in most places, so I don't even know what's standard about it anymore.

time classic

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.
