Farmers get enough from government subsidizing and they need to mess with our time too.

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.

I've fixed the server. Northern hemisphere dwellers who hadn't changed there settings yet shouldn't have to. Everyone else though.

The hour goes forward in the autumn and back in the spring - it's easy to remember with the rhyme "Fall Forward, Spring Back".

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.

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.

I stayed up just to celebrate

Magically seeing 1:59 turn to 3:00 was kind of amazing

Like i felt i was really in the 21st c or on drugs, can’t really tell, but with much subtler side effects that my mind grew paranoid of the longer i dwelled on the fast forwarding of time

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 (eleven 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 (eleven 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 (eleven 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.

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.
