half of our clocks set themselves somehow and the others don't. I looked hard at one clock that was set to 11 am Eastern Time and pretty much passed out again.

It's one hour, stop complaining people! I honestly never heard anyone really bitch about this more than in a passing comment until reading ILX yesterday. I completely fail to see how extra post work daylight doesn't totally negate losing one hour of sleep. It was light until almost seven - so awesome!

New research shows that springing ahead for daylight saving time may do more to our bodies than a triple shot of espresso can fix.

When we set our clocks forward for daylight savings, some researchers say the disruption in circadian rhythms and minor sleep deprivation is enough to trigger some people to have a heart attack.

my sleep schedule is always fucked up anyway, so it doesn't really matter to me. i am v. much against the principle of losing hours of sleep, tho

Guys spring equinox is in 9 friggin' days, you'll get your morning daylight back soon enough. What's important is that a) it's nice enough for me to start biking to work again, in March, in Cleveland; and b) I won't be biking home in pitch darkness.

Colbert suggested last night that it's all a plot by Obama to steal time from him and redistribute it among poor people.

my heart is warmed by the prospect of longer evenings though.

Daylight savings really confused the heck out of me this time. I was on a road trip with my family from Texas to LA with stops along the way in Arizona and Las Vegas. We were trying to hit these locations at particular times, but with DST, time zone changes, and the fact that Arizona does not observe DST, we kept getting extremely confused about what time it was at any given point and what time it would be at our destinations. I'm looking forward to staying in one time zone now that I'm on my way home.

Just flew back & Europe & I gotta admit it's nice to have one fewer hour to adjust to.

still think switching for dst is dumb though

eleven months pass...

1st half of March seems a bit too early to be starting this thing.

No kidding.

Just now got it to where we all get up with daylight outside. Won't happen for another month or so after the time change.

Also, this is going just going to put the sun lower in the sky on my commute, meaning I'll more time to be blinded by it as I travel east.

ONE OR THE OTHER, I DON'T CARE. JUST NOT BOTH, AND CERTAINLY NOT NINE MONTHS OF ONE AND THREE MONTHS OF THE OTHER.

I'm just so glad I don't live in Indiana. They're on Daylight with the rest of us now and yet, from what I've read, everything's still fucked up over there.

you people who would take an hour of sleep over an hour of sun are anathema to me

I was on this train last year of bemoaning daylight savings

circle back to me the day it starts, I may have changed my position having lost an hour of precious sleep

When I think about how in July, sunrise starts at 5:30 am which would usually be 4:30 am, I'm willing to sacrifice one day in the spring to get a decent rest for six hours during the summer.

And when I say "sacrifice one day in the spring," I mean one day in late April, not freakin' March.

Had me going for a moment there. I thought both my phone and my computer would try to update and wasn't sure if they had.
Over here it's the last weekend in March , not this weekend.

Maybe the nurses were friendlier since their shift last night was an hour less?
