Out of the Blue

Daylight saving time begins overnight in this area, another sure sign of the impending spring. As I've said before, I'm a fan of DST, as I like the later sunsets, but like everyone, I hate losing the hour of sleep. And I've finally figured out a fix for this! When DST ends, we can still "fall back" overnight and gain an hour of sleep. But for when DST begins in spring, we should lose the hour in the middle of the day on a weekday, cutting it out of the work week. It may work out the same in the end, but I think everyone would feel better about losing one of the worst hours of the week, let's say 3:00-4:00 pm on Wednesday, rather than an overnight hour on the weekend. Not bad, right? Who's with me?

Yeah, Hoop. But we can fix one of those, not the other.

We should get rid of the whole fucking DST bullshit to begin with. It serves no purpose whatsoever, but at the same time studies seem to indicate that it leads to a high point in medical issues.

But yeah, "losing" the hour on a Wednesday would be much, much better.

No, lose the standard time! Keep daylight saving time! http://aqfl.net/node/5466 for my old poll.

I'm glad we're losing the hour on the weekend though. Don't think I could do work with an hour less of sleep, I'm already cutting it too close as it is.

I prefer the cold. Though in CA, that means just the occasional shower, not debilitating ice and snow.

Beautiful day today up here in Hogtown. First in a week or two and the last for at least another week according to the 7 day forecast. I'm so ready for winter to be done, man! If I had the money and time I'd head out to the Kalahari desert right now and just bake on a rock with the lizards.
