My extreme laziness has finally paid off and not changing any of the clocks in my apt the last time this happened means that I didn't have to do shit this time around.

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

I told a friend to meet me for brunch today at 11 am, and of course, he calls 45 minutes ago to tell me he didn't reprogram his alarm clock. Ugh.

Arsebiscuits truly are the worst things about daylight savings, can't wait to avoid them when I move to Arizona.

dark mornings > > > > dark evenings

Mr. Que, Monday, 15 March 2010 18:28 (eight 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.

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Monday, 15 March 2010 18:31 (eight years ago) Permalink

sounds like a taxi problem, not a DST problem

Mr. Que, Monday, 15 March 2010 18:32 (eight years ago) Permalink

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 (eight 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.

Oh weird, DST isnt ending here for another month almost.

Which now i think on it seems odd because I'm sure it *used* to end on the march long weekend - which is today - so I dunno.

I honestly have no idea what people's qualms are about losing one hour of sleep. It's light out later!

EDB, Sunday, 13 March 2011 15:06 (seven years ago) Permalink

I get up at 6 AM, now my body is going to think I am getting up at 5 AM for about the next week. It was really unpleasant last year, first time I was on this new schedule. Since there is no reason for this time change that I can fathom, I tend to resent it.

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

DS is due to end here in a couple weeks and I will be sad, for that is the beginning of shitty, dark, shitful winter grim.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Tuesday, 13 March 2018 05:52 (three months ago) Permalink

Here's what I don't like:

• Switching from one to the other.

• Switching in March while it's still winter.

pplains, Tuesday, 13 March 2018 14:41 (three months ago) Permalink

seriously having to get up while it's still dark is the most depressing thing and totally ruins my mood for the entire day and an extra hour of light in the evening is not nearly enough to compensate for the torture I have to endure each morning trying to wake up early enough to get my kids ready for school/daycare on time.

I mean, it'll be ok in a month or so but still

silverfish, Tuesday, 13 March 2018 15:37 (three months ago) Permalink

Yesterday morning I was standing on the platform waiting for my morning train and noticing several unfamiliar faces and thought, these poor bastards forgot to change their clocks. And then I looked at my phone (AKA my alarm clock) which had failed to automatically change the time like it was supposed to have done. Who's the poor bastard now, I was forced to ask myself. Who's the poor bastard now.

I mean, maybe they should move the big change to April? What would that hurt?

That's neither here nor there. I'm just mad that the line in "Celebrated Summer" about how sometime in April they add another hour isn't going to be relevant anymore.
