    Eliminate Daylight Savings Time?

    Several states are discussing it, even started bills in their State legislature.
    https://www.govtrack.us/states/al/bi...7ac59888/hb266

    What do you think? Do we still need DST? Or is it a relic of the past that needs to go?

    Re: Eliminate Daylight Savings Time?

    i hate clock switching. not observing this nonsense is one of the few things my state did right, until our idiot governor forced it on us.

    here's my solution :

    spring forward, and never fall back. then all of those who so desperately need that "extra hour" of daylight after work get it all year long. falling back for a few months is pointless and annoying.

    if we need DST, make it permanent.

    Absolutely get rid of it. I am NOT a morning person, so an extra hour of sunlight early in the morning while I'm sleeping does me absolutely zero good. I'd rather have that hour in the evening.

    What sucks about living in Germany in the winter is with daylight's savings time, you leave for work in the dark and come home in the dark, you missed the entire daylight period at work.

    Re: Eliminate Daylight Savings Time?

    I have absolutely no issue with it or without it. It's just one of those things that doesn't matter to me. I've lived in states that did it and at least one state that didn't. It did not significantly effect my life. The only thing was remembering that the time difference was 5 hours during half the year and 6 hours for the other.

    Re: Eliminate Daylight Savings Time?

    I love DST. I don't know why, but I like the way that it mixes things up. By the wintertime, I'm looking forward to nightfall coming early because it is just another part of the end of the year, which I love. By spring, I love springing forward, because it lets me know that spring is here.

    Guess I can't be pleased, huh?

    I said yes, even though bagel with tomato and bacon would have been my choice, had it been an option.

    The time changes serve little purpose these days and if anything harm the internal clocks that people establish when they stick to a standard sleep/wake regimen.

    I'll bet if the TV networks chose to eliminate adherence to the time change, it would end pretty soon.
