Time Change

  1. i guess that this has been discussed but if so i missed it, also missed the news when the legislation passed but it seems that DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME is getting a boost
    suppose to start 3 weeks earlier and end 1 week later..i really, really don't like the one week later because this makes holloween trick or treating too late into the night...it will get dark later and then by the time they go out and come back, put candy away it will be late for school kids

    daylight savings time has been likened to making a blanket longer by cutting six inches off one end and sewing on to the other end

    i wonder if this will mess up my puter???

    Also I think it is not a good idea to keep Daylight time so late because some kids will be going to school in the dark.

    Yes it just might mess up your computer. Microsoft has a patch or you can just turn off automatic updates.

    Frankly I wish they'd just leave the time alone. It made sense (?) in the past century but now we have flashlights, streetlights and headlights. Why not just spend time worrying about something that really matters.

    Well, I'm just happy I live in Az and don't have to deal with that whole 'time change' thing...

    I personally think that Daylight Savings Time should be abolished, as it contributes nothing but inconvenience and havoc to the lives of numerous people.

    :yeahthat:

    Kind of ironic how standard time is anything but, any more.

    I'm not happy my kids are going to be back to waiting for the bus before the sun comes up, either

    At least night shift won't have to work a 13+ hour shift like they do in the fall; of course they'll have to find a way to make up that hour. . .
