Does anyone actually like DST?
« on: March 09, 2014, 11:02:28 AM »
Judging from my Facebook page this morning, hatred of Daylight Saving Time is pretty universal.  I'm not a fan myself -- I hate getting up when it's still dark out. 

How about y'alls?  Anyone have a positive thing to say about DST?

I doesn't bother me one way or the other, but takes a few days getting use to it.

The only positive for me, it signifies the new riding season starts. (hopefully)

DST is just trying to maximize daylight when people can use it. If we set the clocks to be 7am (sunrise) to 7pm (sunset) at the equinox and just let it roll all year long, then we'd be burning valuable daylight at 5am when most people are sleeping.

I *like* daylight saving time.  I grossly dislike changing the damn clocks twice a year and "wasting" that hour in the winter!  Let's just stay on this time, all year round, please.

I live for DST.
I'm sequestered for 10 hours a day in an office with no windows.
If it wasn't for DST I'd only see daylight on weekends.
For  93 days a year I commute in the dark. It sucks.

That sounds like a bigger problem than just Standard Time. :lol:  I can empathize, though.  I guess I did appreciate DST a lot more when I had an office job.

I like working when the clock falls back.

I get an hour of double-time OT.

AND, in the spring, when the clock goes forwards, I work 11 but get paid for 12.

Just move to AZ.  It's Mountain Standard Time, all the time.

I could give a shit about the "number" of the time.  DST doesn't change the amount of sunlight available, it just tries to modify how we perceive it.

Noon happens when the Sun is straight over head.  Anything that tries to modify that reality seems suspicious to me.

+1 and yikes, what a logistical nightmare!

DST or Starndard, I don't care.  I used to like DST becuase I could ride to later in the evening and that was a big plus when I would get home from work at 6 and wanted to go for a nice ride.  The days of going for a ride after work are long gone becuase I have other obligations now.

So today I could care less which time we're in.  I ride on weekends now so if it's in DLS time, I get to ride a little longer in the evenings.  If we're in standard time, I get to start a little sooner. 

Six of one or half dozen of the other.  Same thing.

I do dislike all the disparity it creates in the already-too-numerous timezone issues. The work I do is global these days... ugh.

It's funny though... when I see "DST", I think the financial transfer agency: http://www.dstsystems.com/

It always takes me a moment to connect the dots to the clock thing.

I thought Native Americans in AZ observed DST. 

The whole concept of DST fits a regimented society dependent on candles for illumination.

Unnecessary in the modern world.

This is partially true.  The Navajo nation makes the switch because it's a multi-state reservation. 

I've lived in Arizona since '75 so hadn't had to change until I was working in Sacramento in September of '90.  Having sunset and sunrise jump so drastically is just unnatural.  Pick a time zone and stick with it says me.

Sunrise? It was still dark out when I got to work today. NBD

But...I'll have over two hours of glorious daylight to ride home in.
I just might take the long way home.

A couple more inches tomorrow night and back down to single digits for a day or two. At least at night.


After that I'm declaring it over.  It better be since the heat will be getting turned off very soon.

Got two more inches last night.

I'm taking Friday off and riding down to Marlinton for the
weekend. So there, that should send enough positive
energy your way to ward off any jinx.
I'm officially breaking the shackles of winter.  :twofinger:

We are doomed. DOOMED!  ;D

Wut? No summer?   :-[

Summer? Do you mean July?
It's normally too hot to ride then.
First person who tells me it's too hot this year gets a fat lip.

I guess you'd get really cross if I told you it was in the 80s here in SoCal.  So I won't.

I know where you can go if you need to warm up a bit.  Plus, you won't have to reset your watch!

I don't know how it could be all that warm, since the sun don't shine there.   :lol:

I've adjusted.
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
