    I understand the simplistic and IMO, remedial point everyone here is making but you don't understand mine.

    Your point that Florida would eventually become 12 hours offset from everyone else? No, we understand that. It's just not true.

    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.
    LOL, Okay, time is simple, 24 hours in a day, 365 days in a year with the exception of leap year which I suppose means there are 365 1/4 days in the actual year. Rather Florida stays on daylight savings time for the whole year or switches back and forth between standard and daylight saving will not change the 24 hour clock or the 365 1/4 day year. All it means is during the summer all states in the eastern time zone will be on the same time, during winter when every other state falls back an hour, Florida will be an hour ahead and on the same time as the central time zone on to return to Eastern time when all other states in the eastern time zone spring forward an hour in spring.

    But I agree with you, one ought to enjoy his time on earth while he is here. Perhaps we can continue this conversation in our next life.
    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.

    DST is about as useless and outdated as a union. Would be nice if they would just pick 1 time and stick with it.

    I personally hate it especially living in the northeast. Friggin sun goes down at 430pm. Sucks. Probably explains why everyone is such douchebags up this way.

    If your clock said 630pm or "lemon tart o clock" would it make you less of a douchebag?

    Not sure what you're asking. The reference is simple, people are happier when exposed to some sun. Sun sets at rises around 7am sets a 430pm in the NE. Most people are work during these hours. Therefore, you go to work in the dark, you get home in the dark. Not really a hard concept to grasp. If the time was 530pm, people would get some exposure at the close of their day.
