Is this screwing up anybody's schedule? It's a couple weeks early this year. Our school's system hasn't changed over yet so nearly everything done with timers/timing is done manually.

The government controls time. literally!:scared:

Apart from some webcomics appearing an hour later than usual, no. My Schedules fine.

I dislike Daylight Savings Time. Because really, in this day and age, what purpose does it have?

Farming. It's all about the Farmers and how they have an extra hour of life to do Farmer stuff. I hate it though, I can't get my sleep patterns right again >.< But it does have a good thing coming from it though for ppl like me who like to play sports outside in the evening, a good game of ball get's one more hour woot!*dances*

yea, but now it doesn't matter if its night time are not if they work considering our technology allows to somehow "magically" illuminate dark areas (lights). so daylight is no longer required...

x.X Originally it was so people back when Benny Franklin was alive could save on candles and stuff.

So what's the use now? It only saves like 1% of the power in California.

It's a huge pain in the butt. I know that when we get back to school, the bell system is going to be really messed up, and a ton of people are going to be late for school because the time will probably be earlier than real-life time.

One percent of the power my state consumes is a monsterous amount. We import more oil than any other state, and saving energy and thus oil in the process is a big help.

You would think with our modern tech we could resolve the issue of having to turn back the clocks .. asses the actual time & stop following an old system that is faulted .. this whole Christian based time set up is dated, from a time when the church denied the reality that the earth was round .. time for a change ..
