    Time to save some daylight! I looked at my computer clock weird when it read 3:01, I was like, "What the hell, where did the time go? Oh yeah..." [​IMG]

    In this day and age, all this clock falling back and springing forwards must stop. Wish I lived in a state where it didn't change, as there is no need to.

    "We" did the clock turning thing a week ago: at least that's one area where we're ahead.....

    I think it does serve a purpose: significant amounts of energy can be saved if it becomes dark an hour later.

    Another benefit is in the fall when mornings are very dark for the kiddies standing at the bus stop.

    Ugh, falling back is so much easier than spring forward.[​IMG]

    Also, obviously, it gives you time to do something outside after work during the summer.

    Count me in as another who is happy we move the clocks ahead in the Spring. I love the fact, that in the middle of Summer here in Ohio, it's about 10:00pm before it's dark.

    It get darks later but it is also dark longer in the morning, its like the glass is half full or half empty, all the same.

    When I used to play golf after work during the week when the twilight rates kicked in, it was possible to finish an entire round before the sun set during daylight savings time.

    Except that a lot more people are up and about doing stuff at 8pm than at 5am. So the glass is more like 70% full, 30% empty [​IMG]

    They should just leave the time at Daylight Savings year-round- I absolutely loathe time-changes. Monday's going to be hell for me!
    I've got a movie theatre trailer on one of Catcom's TV Commercials DVDs (it includes a few other non-movie trailers as well) from around the 1950's saying to vote for a proposal to stop changing the time- I wonder what happened to it?

    Living in the great state of Indiana( [​IMG] ) we don't change our clocks.
    We were on Eastern time. When the others "Spring Ahead" 1 hour we are stuck living in Central time zone.
    Pretty stupid if you ask me. Now "Prime-Time TV" starts at 7pm.
