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?

pplains, Saturday, 10 March 2018 23:48 (one year ago) link

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.

Just letting you know.

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

F# A# (∞), Sunday, 11 March 2018 10:39 (one year ago) link

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)

a passing spacecadet, Sunday, 11 March 2018 16:15 (one year ago) link

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?

Still dont understand why ppl hate DST. Whats not to love about sunlight til 9pm in summer? Blessed days. I love it.

some goth you are

mookieproof, Tuesday, 13 March 2018 02:23 (one year ago) link

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 (one year ago) link

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 (one year ago) link

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

silverfish, Tuesday, 13 March 2018 15:37 (one year ago) link

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.

I mean, maybe they should move the big change to April? What would that hurt?

pplains, Tuesday, 13 March 2018 17:18 (one year ago) link

it used to be in april (and the same date as in europe) until this

this has been the easiest adjustment of my life tbh

(Didn't you read this post of mine that I made 13 years ago?)

That's neither here nor there. I'm just mad that the line in "Celebrated Summer" about how sometime in April they add another hour isn't going to be relevant anymore.

the greatest day of the year, finally some respite from the suffocating darkness of winter

heinrich boll weevil (Hadrian VIII), Saturday, 9 March 2019 15:34 (six months ago) link

real question: do you guys sleep so consistently from nigh to night that a single hour is that big a deal?

I get an hour less sleep on any random weeknight

tbh, getting our early-rising pets re-situated is more of a hassle than our own schedules
