Ban Daylight Saving Time! Who’s With Me?

Sorry, I’m too tired to write a proper blog this morning. Can someone please explain to me why we still have Daylight Saving Time? How does this save light? Don’t tell me it’s for the farmers so they can work later in the fields. Real farmers go to bed when it gets dark and get up when it’s light (or before).

Changing the clock messes with our circadian rhythms, and it puts us on the highway half asleep. Stats show that car accidents increase. Oh, and if you’re a parent like me, tell me how you explain daylight savings to a preschooler? Never mind, I’m too sleepy to care. I’m starting a movement. Who’s with me?

Ban Daylight Saving Time!

I’m taking a stand. Though if you don’t mind, I’ll take it lying down. 😉

    I’m with you, Michael!

    My 14 year old says this morning, “Mom if I ever become President, I’m going to make Daylight Savings Time illegal!”

    Now, that’s a worthy law!

    I am STILL exhausted! After 4 days of confusion, the Missus and I have finally updated ever clock in the house and both cars. Ugh! I’m with you. Ban daylight saving time!!!

    I have a straightforward solution. Why not split the difference. There is an advantage to DST (more evening light), and advantage to winter time (No dark mornings).

    Why don’t we just split the difference. set EST = GMT – 4:30 for the rest of time.

    I acknowledge the inconvenience of being half-hour from EU time zones. But who cares
    .. half an hour hardly makes a difference, and the best part is we stick to it year round.

    Let people start showing up to work early automatically in the summer, and come in late in
    the winter. Humans are not ROBOTS!!!

      I’ve always gotten confused when countries are off by 30 minutes, but I’m quite willing to split the difference if it get’s me 30 more minutes of sleep. :)
