    THE TIME CHANGE - Split the hour in half and call it a day - Anyone else dislike it ?

    Anyone else dreading the time change ?

    I think every year it gets more irritating to "adjust".

    The only time I liked the change is when it was Fall and I was in a bar. :P

    Anyone else ?

    Hate it. I was around when this began and still don't like it, nor understand why we're still doing it.

    They said it was for the farmers...who don't necessarily live by the clock anyway.

    What kills me is the fact I have to sit inside or burn more juice (electricity) just to continue doing things.

    Which brings to mind that it is / was a "conspiracy" amongst the electric Co's.

    I have never one time, had an extra hour of sleep on the night when we were expected to set the clocks back. It never fails, either a battery in a smoke detector goes off in the middle of the night or my phone rings and it's a wrong number!

    said it was stupid for years, believe it was just to see if they could manipulate people into doing something and they did and do

    I like it. I was around when it was passed into law (1966) but was too young to remember life with out it.

    I like that the extra daylight we enjoy during the summer months is shifted (via clock) to sync up with most peoples schedules.

    I would hate having the sun rise at 4:40 AM and set at 7:30 in June. My wake/sleep cycle is tied to my job as it is with most people. I typically sleep until 5:30 and I'd be sleeping through the first hour of daylight.

    It was done to give more daylight to the active part of the day in both summer and winter. Spring forward gives us more daylight in evenings which saves some energy as dont have to turn on the lights earlier, on fall back it gives more light in the mornings. The further north you are the more affect it has, along equator there is no need as daylight varies very little, constant 12 hours of light day, 12 hours of darkness in the night.

    In Philippines on Jan 1 sun rises at 6:30am and sets at 5:30pm.
    In Minot ND it rises at 08:28 and sets at 05:05 PM

    In philippines on June 1st sun rises at 5:30am and sets at 6:30pm
    In Minot ND on June 1 sun rises at 6am and sets at about 930pm

    It's' just an hour. 1/24th of a day. Don't bother me at all. Up before the sun rises and back home when it sets. I mean there is only so much daylight in winter and I'm catching all of it regardless of how the clock is set.
