I understand the reason for daylight saving so why can't we just keep it there for the whole year...who doesn't like extra daylight .... not all places adhere to the clock changes...I think it is an unnecessary evil ...JMHO

I feel so much more rested now that I got that extra hour of sleep I lost in the Spring.

Don't you know its really a conspiracy to get all clock items with internet connectivity, so you don't have to run around twice a year, desyncing all the clocks you synced. Analog clocks are still the best, right twice a day no matter what!

Daylight savings makes as much sense as the .09 on the cost of a gallon of fuel

Another example of forward thinking. You can cut a foot off of a blanket and sew it on the other end to make the blanket longer????

Does this mean with shorter days we get winter over with sooner? There is only 24 hours in each day. Shorter days?

Look at the bright side of winter,

- curbs are softer
- easier to turn car around
- look like a professional drifter
- less road construction
- shed 10 lbs instantly every time you come in. A dieters delight.
- no mowing lawn
- when I've much less salt...
