*Grrr*

Could we just set the clocks a half hour ahead and then forget about Daylight Savings time all together?

Comments

I much prefer the weekend in the fall when we get an extra hour. If they'd shorten the length of an hour by just 22 seconds we could have an extra hour every weekend.

When told the reason for daylight savings time the Old Indian said, "Only the government would believe that you could cut a foot off the top of a blanket, sew it to the bottom, and have a longer blanket."

We have really out grown the need for the time change. I also wish we could just leave it the same.
Mum and I were talking about that last night during dinner. It makes tons of sense to do just that. In the fall, turn all clocks back 30 min and do away with Daylight Savings altogether.

Society is now pretty much 24 hours now, so there's no need to have to endure this anymore.
I agree! The whole thing is nonsense. I don't care how you slice it there are still only 24 hours in a day.

I wish we could just keep it ONE way.
Well, not exactly 24 hours a day, bit less than that, hence we need a leap day each four years for catch up again. :)
Well, in the UK, it's the Scots fault for the change of time twice a year. There's been many discussions on the rest of the UK to have their own time and when moving to BST, we stick to it and call it.

As for Scotland they could have their own switching back and forth as they're further up north and it should keep the farmers up there happy since I think it was something to do with cattle farming in needing some daylight at the right time hence the moving clocks back and forth.

Though it did get more reasons such as making sure there was daylight in the morning for kids to get into school safely. But these days most parents drive their SUV's and/or they get on the yellow school buses/coaches now.

Surprisingly that's something the UK has done, supplied bigger school buses than the US has, your school buses are tiny in comparison. XD
