Springbreak is an hour shorter.

It's extra confusing this year because I'm traveling between Austin, Indianapolis, and Chicago. Keeping track of the various time zones is a nightmare.

The phones at work have been an hour early all week. We use the cutting edge technology of 2004, apparently.

at least those of us in the Northeast will be able to see the foot of snow for an extra hour on Tuesday.

Who do I talk to about never going back to standard time after the DST change this year?

DST is superior in every way.
Standard is dumb and it sucks.

Truer words have never been said.

also i get to get up in the dark to go to my doctor appointments again

Supercreditor (Dr Morbius), Saturday, 11 March 2017 14:01 (two years ago) link

I'll say this: With the way this year has already been going, DST likely won't feel so disruptive this time around.

pplains, Saturday, 11 March 2017 16:12 (two years ago) link

the only thing good about DST is that it prevents the sky getting light at 4am in june

The thing I'm proudest of Dubya for doing as president is lengthening the period of time the US is under DST each year.

tokyo rosemary, Saturday, 11 March 2017 22:58 (two years ago) link

If jobs were 7-3 rather than 9-5, would many care for DST?

Sanpaku, Saturday, 11 March 2017 23:30 (two years ago) link

granted: not many are 9-5 anymore.

all daylight savings means to me is that soon it will never not be 100 degrees for like, 6 months or some shit and i hate it

Yoni Loves Chocha (VegemiteGrrl), Sunday, 12 March 2017 01:36 (two years ago) link

i can never understand? which time is "standard" and why

assawoman bay (harbl), Sunday, 12 March 2017 01:52 (two years ago) link

i can't figure out which one is normal. all i want to do is sleep all the time so i just treat each transition as i am entering a new period of hell.

assawoman bay (harbl), Sunday, 12 March 2017 01:54 (two years ago) link

Standard now somehow exists for less than 50% of the year in most places, so I don't even know what's standard about it anymore.

Ⓓⓡ. (Johnny Fever), Sunday, 12 March 2017 02:17 (two years ago) link

time classic

j., Sunday, 12 March 2017 02:35 (two years ago) link

Time zones approximate 15° orange slices of the globe. Under normal, non-DLS time, if you're at 0°, 15°, 30°, 45°, 60° (etc) longitude, at the center of each abstract time zone, the sun is most directly overhead at local noon.

DLS shifts an hour from morning to the evening, and was lobbied for by ice cream vendors and the like who benefited from more hours of post-labor sunlit leisure.

there has been some talk of colonizing the faroes

the summer light would be okay there

mookieproof, Sunday, 12 March 2017 04:06 (two years ago) link

the law should be that civil twilight should never start before 5:30 pm (in Chicago at least) and if Trump could make that happen, then he has my vote in 2020

I hate 4:15 sunset (and on full darkness at 3:00 pm on cloudy days)

Je55e, Sunday, 12 March 2017 04:09 (two years ago) link

i've got some uncivil twilight for u

mookieproof, Sunday, 12 March 2017 04:19 (two years ago) link

when do you like your daylight?

Je55e, Sunday, 12 March 2017 04:41 (two years ago) link

between 10 and 4 will do, thanks

back in the day i used to play pickup basketball after work, for which daylight is useful, but now let us plunge this planet in eternal darkness imo

mookieproof, Sunday, 12 March 2017 04:49 (two years ago) link

I hear you. I've been averse to the concept of craving daylight. I used to think it was a sign of being a simp.

I'm the opposite: the pain of the loss of an hour is offset by the coming of 4 blessed months when it won't be below 0°C in the daytime, for the most part.

hardcore dilettante, Sunday, 12 March 2017 05:42 (two years ago) link

granted: not many are 9-5 anymore.

Just us normals who refuse to do anything else. (it's in the Bible)
