F Daylight Savings Time
 
[IMG]http://t.qkme.me/3si8cs.jpg[/IMG]

Seriously this is crap. We have to move the clocks back for 8 months and only get it to move forward for 4. Am I the only one that sees a problem with this picture?

Originally we were to suppose to move the clocks back in April but our amazing congress decided to move it up.

[quote]But in 2007, Congress adjusted daylight saving time to begin three weeks earlier and end one week later, a move they hoped would help save energy. At the time, they pointed to the fact that longer daylight in the evening hours reduced the need to turn on lights in homes at night.

1% reduction in energy usage, 3% drop in productivity. hmmmmmmmm. Economic recession or Energy savings?

[quote]Matthew Uhles with the Clayton Sleep Institute talks about it. According to the SleepBetter.org, moving the clock ahead one hour each spring inflicts nearly half a billion dollars ($434 million) in total losses on the U.S. economy.

Lost sleep has a cost, studies have shown, that missing hour of sleep has both physiological and psychological effects effects that can lead to an increase in workplace injury, cyberloafing and even heart attacks.

One day that will be rewarded later in the year is no big deal. I'm glad that it won't be dark when I get off work. F Standard time. Daylight savings FTW.

Im with you. I hate gettin off work and its dark. its depressing. When i get home I like it get outside for awhile walking the dog or running at the track or park.

Some Like it dark early, some don't. Honestly for me it really doesn't matter that much, I just don't like losing sleep lol

Yup, any studies about the losses with depression like Chico said? SUPER rough getting home in the dark. Makes you not want to do anything.

We like it.
My wife doesnt have to drive home in the dark and theres more time to get yard work done.
More time outside in the daylight is a good thing.

Is one hour of sleep that big of a deal? I love having the extra day light and made use of the extra day light to play some corn hole and have a few beers.

Not sure if the 2 offset percent for percent or dollar for dollar. Id be tempted to put money on a 1% decrease in engery is more than half a billion.

The hard months for me are May and June when the sun comes up before 6am. Little kids don't read clocks so when the sun is up is time to get up.

Imagine how horrible it would be if not for DLST. You would be woken up by your little kids a little before 5am. each morning.



Also, something neat i found out last year is that the increaing daylight we experience each year is asymmetrical. I cant remember the exact explaination, but if anyone here gets up early, youll notice the amount of day light increases moreso in the evening then it does in the morning.

I think this is trying to explain it:

But i just chalk it up to the fact that Day Man is Fighter of The Night Man.
