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

    Yes, time zones are invented. Just like daylight savings time. Look at your clock. At the time of this writing, it says "7:03pm" in my time zone. It could say "8:03pm" or "4:36am," this has absolutely no bearing on the earth's rotation or orbit around the sun. The only reason we make these adjustments is because for some reason humanity has decided it's really important that the sun rises somewhere in the mid "AM" range and sets sometime in the mid "PM" range. I guess it's just too weird for us to have to wake up at "4pm" to go work in the morning.

    Daylight savings time adjustments go forward an hour in the spring, and back an hour in the fall. The net effect per year is... zero. All of these things are purely arbitrary changes and have no relevance whatsoever to leap years or leap seconds.

    I don't think this is something that should be done at the state level. It would be chaotic and problematic to have half of the states in the same time zone with different times. As far as the idea of implementing it at the national level; I'm unsure. I like having extra light at night, but I don't like the idea of it still being dark at 8am in the winter.
    I'm pretty sure this is done at the county level, if not at the state level.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    I give up, but the bottom line it doesn't matter one iota if FLorida stays on the same time all year around or switches to DST in March and back ST in October. Regardless of the time, the sun will come up in the morning and go down in the evening.
    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.

    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.
    Who said I wasn't a pilot myself?

    All I'm saying is time will drop if one comes up with their "own" idea of time...At least time will drop with an idea like this.


    Everyone opposed to what I'm saying is missing an hour - hence the whole purpose of DLST.

    The state of Florida is no different than anywhere else in the world and the simple fact we turn our clocks back and forward twice a year don't make the state of Florida any more special, and it certainly doesn't "save time" or "preserve time."

    This issue is so far beyond the understanding and education of the majority here that I have absolutely no desire to argue with the remedial who believe what they're talking about...

    I'd need to point complex math to prove what I have been saying all along - but no one here could understand the math/proof.

    People should just go about their business and enjoy their time on earth instead of arguing with someone who does understand time and relevance.

    Why inject a day every so often to make up for slack when you could just always update it year round with the magic of computers? The new system is much better after cry babies get over the loss of nostalgia.

    Nobody is "missing" an hour. Time isn't dropped, or not dropped, based on our arbitrary setting of clocks, and observing or failing to observe DST does not make a particular location gradually become more and more offset from everyone else.

    Florida would never become 12 hours offset from Alabama if this law were implemented. I'm not sure how else to help you grasp this.

    Time travel is possible - but it's not "time travel" more like "dimensional jumping." The logistics for a human to survive such a "jump" are impossible presently - not to mention a retrieval.

    Fine, I'm wrong and every clock you don't use in your house is "broken" despite you bought those said clocks and they haven't been touched..

    Yeah the rest of the world changes their clocks twice a year - Florida wants to change theirs once... It doesn't take a genius to figure out that problem.
