    Since Daylight Savings Time is canceled out every November it does not add or subtract hours from the year and thus IN NO WAY SHAPE OR FORM would cause clocks to read 3PM when its completely dark outside for example. Every March an hour is added every November an hour is subtracted, thus there is no net change.

    neither state gains or loses any time.
    Fine, then try it and see what happens.

    I guess that's why they've changed never when a country has decided to change them right?

    Also explains why they so often follow borders are similarly reasonable lines, what a coincidence right? I guess China is really lucky or unlucky depending on how you look at it that the stars, moons, planets and gravity decided to put the whole country into one timezone, but somehow it magically lined up with their modern borders



    Also there's only one moon, not moons.

    Here is a time zone map, if you can read it, if not here is the URL,

    WorldTimeZone - Current time around the World and standard time zones map of the world- 12 format

    you will notice that quite a few countries choose their own time.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    No, a Leap Year is not about "control" - there is no "about" of it!

    A Leap Year only exists to make up for lost time on "our" calender.

    Tell me why we need to add an extra day if we don't lose time?

    Daylight savings time has absolutely nothing to do with sunlight - that would be about as ignorant as saying Columbus sailed the Atlantic to prove the Earth was round.

    I call that delusional...

    I wouldn't say they "choose" their own - more like they "invent" their own - but none of that changes reality.

    Honestly I would call that Whole language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia induced authoritarian dictatorship craziness.

    10 pages almost exclusively of trolling, I wonder if this is a site record?

    I could care less if Florida want's to exercise their Tenth Amendment rights but the watches of the Citizens of Florida will slow - or at least appear to slow.

    I've already done this "time" experiment - that is how I know I'm right.

    Yet you praise me in other threads....

    Nice fly boy... By the way, Chimps can fly airplanes these days so such a title of "Pilot" isn't that all impressive.

    We have leap years and leap seconds because one revolution around the sun doesn't actually come out to be exactly 365 days.

    But that is not at all related to daylight savings time. Daylight savings time is purely an arbitrary adjustment of clocks within the normal 24 hour cycle. There are places, even in the US, that have never adjusted for daylight savings time, and yet haven't "lost time." Because daylight savings time is not an adjustment for orbital mechanics, it is purely, 100% arbitrary.

    Mr.Nick. I'm a pilot. We operate in "zulu" time. It never has changed from daylight savings time, yet the conversion from zulu to local remains the same as it was when I started flying 13 years ago.
