there has been some talk of colonizing the faroes

the summer light would be okay there

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)

when do you like your daylight?

Je55e, Sunday, 12 March 2017 04:41 (one year ago) Permalink

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

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.

What does the resumption of standard time mean to me? The bar opens an hour earlier.

And for us, it used to not be so much of a problem back when we fell back in mid-October. But for the last week, I've been waking up the kids while the streetlights outside are still turned on.

Between that, 80º weather and World Series that don't finish until November, I've been feeling pretty discombobulated already. Lord knows how I'll feel tomorrow.

pplains, Sunday, 5 November 2017 03:17 (four months ago) Permalink

But also keep in mind that tonight will be magical for one reason.

The Central Time Zone will fall back at 2 a.m. In other words, the clock will go from 0159 to 0100.

Since the Mountain Time Zone won't fall back until 2 a.m., it will also be 0100 in those areas. So the contiguous states will really only have three time zones for 59 minutes.

Which also means that the time in portions of Oregon (a state on the West Coast) and portions of Florida (a state on the East Coast) will be the same.

Seeing how DST is now seven months of the year, I think it should be called Standard Time. We could rename current Standard Time to something like Darkness Redistribution Time.

Totally selfish, I know, but I don't care what time the sun comes up because I work from home, but I hate it getting pitch black outside at 5pm because that only leaves the weekend for me to do shit in my yard. Fuck s standard time.

I appreciate more light in the morning, being an early riser, but then it goes away quickly anyway. Annoying.

Twitter was complaining about how this is happening during the SEC Basketball Tournament, and I was all oh you see now why this is happening too early?

For the first time in years I don't have to go to work in the morning on the first day of the time change.

I stayed up just to celebrate

Magically seeing 1:59 turn to 3:00 was kind of amazing

Like i felt i was really in the 21st c or on drugs, can’t really tell, but with much subtler side effects that my mind grew paranoid of the longer i dwelled on the fast forwarding of time

If you suffer at all from seasonal affective disorder today is reason to celebrate.

the internet, 11th march, 2018: where british people read american posts about changing the clocks and american people read british posts about mother's day and everyone thinks "oh shit, was that today? i forgot"

(uk clocks change 25th march and mother's day outside the uk & ireland is the 13th may, relax everyone)

Yeah, this is the three weeks where we wonder if our family in Australia is either 15 or 17 hours apart... or how about 16?

yeah it's the shit. even losing an hour this weekend, which I usually dread, was welcome since the 24 straight hours I needed to be at the hospital ended up only being 23. sorry haters d:]

DS is due to end here in a couple weeks and I will be sad, for that is the beginning of shitty, dark, shitful winter grim.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Tuesday, 13 March 2018 05:52 (six days ago) Permalink

Here's what I don't like:

• Switching from one to the other.

• Switching in March while it's still winter.

pplains, Tuesday, 13 March 2018 14:41 (six days ago) Permalink

seriously having to get up while it's still dark is the most depressing thing and totally ruins my mood for the entire day and an extra hour of light in the evening is not nearly enough to compensate for the torture I have to endure each morning trying to wake up early enough to get my kids ready for school/daycare on time.

I mean, it'll be ok in a month or so but still

Yesterday morning I was standing on the platform waiting for my morning train and noticing several unfamiliar faces and thought, these poor bastards forgot to change their clocks. And then I looked at my phone (AKA my alarm clock) which had failed to automatically change the time like it was supposed to have done. Who's the poor bastard now, I was forced to ask myself. Who's the poor bastard now.
