There is no extra hour of daylight. It's a scam. Each day has X number of hours of daylight. Changing the clock does nothing but mess up everyone's circadian rhythms. What's-his-name hates threading. I hate daylight savings time!

Bill Lee 7 years, 2 months ago

Deec is almost right. DST doesn't increase the amount of daylight, it just shifts the time of it. Summer days do have more daylight than winter days do, however. I like to spend the extra hours of summer daylight scopin' babes.

George Vernon Hudson came up with the idea of Daylight Savings Time in 1895. It has been used in different forms by countries worldwide since then. I blame the extra hour of daylight for global warming, earthquakes and hurricanes. God Hates DST!!

Be at the baseball/softball field longer. Last night before 7, the boys could barely see people. Next week at 7, I'm sure will be MUCH better.

For people working a regular daylight job who also enjoy working and playing outdoors, it is the greatest day of the year. For those not so inclined, it has no real effect other than adjusting their circadian rhythm somewhat and griping about a loss of sleep. The original purpose of DST is inconsequential, but the impact on our social lives is huge. Yahoo!

Do we really have to keep growing vegetables to help defeat the Kaiser?

It's not hard you just need the proper tools. Start with a hammer and chisel to open the case and gain access to the drive. Then use a small to medium pry bar to remove the old hdd. To install the new one, take your hammer and gently, gently pound that sucka in. . . . . . . Sorry...I've been misinformed...ignore my advice. But I've a question...why do you need more daylight to do that?

Something tells me Sue needs to adjust her priorities!

Okaaaay. So, what about children standing in the dark at 7:00am, or earlier, waiting for the school bus in the Fall?

I used to hate walking to my 7:30 am KU class in the dark before it was time to change back to standard time.

DST does not increase the number of light hours. It enables conservation of energy as it allows daytime ran business' to utilize hours naturally lit by the sun and not waste energy. It just messes up our natural internal clocks and causes us to readjust our daily life schedule!

I love the change. I hate to come home after work in the dark. It makes me feel like the day is over. I would like it all year long.

I don't know. Probably eat more. And poop more. I have a pooping problem. I poop too much.

My old grandpappy always said "First liar never stands a chance!" So much for relying on a google search.

Alright, tomatogrower, catch of the day! What would do me? I told the doc recently, if I was given the choice of a lobster dinner or sex I may have to think about it. He said if I hesitate at all I better choose the lobster . . .

I'm hoping that this time switch will fool the baby into sleeping in a little later. Then maybe I'll be able to get a little more done in the morning before he wakes up. That or I'll at least have 30 minutes to myself with my coffee and

I know the sun is going to go down later today. Could someone come inside long enough to fix the headline on this story?
