    Why do kids need to be at school at 7:00am?

    Let them go at 8:00am.

    I deleted that post because I couldn't verify what I posted upon searching.

    As for people seeing the sun on their way to work/school, that is of little consequence. Especially when its only for 1/3 of the year.

    How we account for the passage of time doesn't concern me. It's when we run out of it that I'll get worried.

    I think we should get rid of it.I lived in Korea for a year and it did not bother me that they did not go forward or back a year.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Set it ahead and leave it.

    If a business does need to stick closer to solar time the computers can handle the difference a lot cheaper than the whole country bouncing back and forth.

    Just get rid of it, it makes no sense in an industrial era. Personally, just about every clock in the house switches automatically so setting times is a virtual non-issue, but there's still no reason for it.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    We should abolish it cause I was busy writing a paper and the clock suddenly jumped an hour forward. Man was I pissed.
