Comments on Sunday 7 April 2002:
Hurry up, I haven't got all day. I still have 23 hours of it, but some sod stole an hour this morning. Daylight savings, tosh. Daylight robbery, more like. [23:54]

Grrr... daylight savings. Most hated of all spring occurances (especially to those who work on Sundays). Except for allergies, and bugs, and too much sun..... remind me why I like Spring again???

I've never understood the savings bit, does it go into some global trust account or something? Do we get the daylight back? Maybe we can trade it in for some nice starry nights. Or maybe a toaster!

RavenBlack
That sounds good. Free frisbee with every three daylights. I think I'll trade them all in, and start a frisbee shop.

Iglibu (which rhymes with Eperdu)
Free frisbee! Wee!
Eh..I think we should all just go according to the Aztec Calender...but then again, they sacrficed virgins on particular days...stupid imbeciles.

Nik
"Do we get the daylight back?" Er, yes. That's rather the point. DST shifts the day around to maximise the amount of sun that sits within a normal working day.

Not that I agree with it. Bloody horrible concept.

Nik
"within a normal working day" - well, not quite what I meant. But it's good for farmers. Farmers! I ask you.

Basically, it is a trick to get us all to go to work an hour earlier, so we will go home an hour earlier and go to bed an hour earlier, thus turning off the light an hour earlier. It also means that we turn the lights on an hour earlier in the morning...

Tabbie
Or, if I leave my daylight in my daylight savings account, do I get interest? Like if I leave it all there, do I get to live an extra 20 years? I wonder how many people (not night people) would live in perpetual darkness to extend their own lives?

TribbleHunter
We don't have daylight savings time in Arizona. We just switch between Mountain and Pacific time. :-D You could do the same, but I'm not so sure your employer would appreciate it...

whatever
i spent my whole sunday in bed, suffering from a hurge hangover. is that of any interest ? huh ?

whatever
and i'm not trying to hide my e-mail though. i'm just experimenting (i'm not sure this verb really exists or makes sense in english) this billboard for the first time. (well i quite sure this sentence doesn't make no sense in english but this time my e-mail's not hidden, i don't expect answers or whatever but i'm that kind of guy who's got nothing to hide while downloading some crazy mp3 from brainwashed.com/vvm, so...)

Arizona really need to observe DST during the summer between April and October. To assure that they'll have a good taste of having daylight/twilight later in the evening if the government allow to use DST which means still on the MST. However, since Arizona do not observe DST which means they are on California time (PST) will get dark early and California will still have daylight a little while longer. If Arizonas were smart enough, they can tell the local government to move the clock 1 hour foward and still be on MST, not on PST. The Indian Reservation do observe daylight savings is on MST and the rest of the state is on PST. You may want to check on www.sunrisesunset.com and most of USA have daylight after 8pm. Best if the people in the state of Arizona to persuade the government or vote.

John Doe
Advantages daylight savings for Amtrak, Airlines, Freight trains, other transportations, sports including Arizona Diamondbacks.

Farmers hate daylight savings!
