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 (eight 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 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.

there has been some talk of colonizing the faroes

the summer light would be okay there

mookieproof, Sunday, 12 March 2017 04:06 (eight months ago) Permalink

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)

i've got some uncivil twilight for u

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

mookieproof, Sunday, 12 March 2017 04:49 (eight months ago) Permalink

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.

Just us normals who refuse to do anything else. (it's in the Bible)

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.

pplains, Sunday, 5 November 2017 03:17 (two weeks ago) Permalink

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.
