You don't lose an hour during the weekend...you lose an hour at roughly 5am on Monday morning. And you miss that hour for the rest of the week.
But having sunlight until 7:30pm MORE than makes up for that slight stumbling block.
For the love of God. It's like traveling one time zone east. Do you pansies seriously complain about losing an hour of sleep when you fly from Chicago to DC?
Am I being downvoted for the dog park or washing my truck? I need to know this urgently.
If I spent three months and had acclimated my entire schedule to central time, you better believe I would be complaining when I moved back east. Other than that, every time I go an hour west I just keep my normal schedule and wake up/go to bed on eastern time.
Allowing your pipes to burst.
Do you die/spontaneously combust when you go to Europe? I can't imagine anyone between the ages of 5 and 85 having such a strong internal clock that an hour time change makes any difference at all.
What if you are responsible for caring for someone younger than 5 or older than 85?
That's what duct tape is for.
Arizona doesn't participate in DST. Who the hell do they think they are
Neither does Hawaii.
I could be pulling this completely out of my ass, but weren't we going to stop doing DST a few years ago but someone freaked out and we didn't? I thought I remembered hearing about that, no?
I used to hate DST when I had to wake up at like 5am for my old job... I felt dead for at least a week. Now that my schedule is more flexible, I absolutely love it.
When I get to Europe, I usually stay up for 36-48 hours on the front end (I can't sleep on planes) and effectively reset my internal clock. Coming back, though, I am useless for about 2 weeks.
I have horrible sleep issues, anyway, though. Thank god for prescription sleep pills.
I do the same thing going to Europe, and aside from general fatigue, I'm fine. I can't sleep on overnight flights to save my life. Oddly enough, I can easily sleep the whole time on a 2 PM flight from Chicago to Kansas City.
The way back, to me, is soooo much easier. You basically just have to stay up an extra 5 or 6 hours. At our age, that shouldn't be too much of a problem.
Then just be tired for a couple of days and sack up. Steal some soda from Chipotle if you need caffeine.
I'm just going to assume that anyone that hates DST because of the lost hour has never traveled to a different time zone.
Usually I welcome DST as well...but Sunday morning had to be up at ~6 - to get my daughter to a volleyball tournament at McDaniel College (old Western MD in Westminster).
So in effect I was waking up at 5 am on a Sunday morning FTMFL...and getting up Monday was just a bad
Can't you hate both of those?
I'm driving home and the sun is in my eyes. This sucks.
Were you posting from the left lane?
This guy didnt like DST.
Either this website doesn't exist or is not currently available.
"It is not lost on his family that he died the very day that he would have had to spring his clock forward."
Fuck this shit, I'm outta here!
I didn't read after the first paragraph, since the language was too cumbersome. I AM NOT FROM THAT LONG BEACH.
