  • We "spring forward" and so lose an hour, not gain one.
    • You know, I've asked that question in several places (online, and in the analog world), and I keep getting the same misunderstanding.

      I don't mean an hour gained one time, during the transition. I mean the alleged hour we gain every day during the period of daylight saving time. Allegedly we're all getting another hour of daylight. What are you going to do with it? If we're not actually getting that hour in any tangible way, we might want to reconsider whether the costs of the transition are worth it.

      • "If daylight savings is so good, why not go on it year-round?"

        And before you think that was a joke, that's exactly what some of our proud lawmakers want to do. How... misunderstood.

        • I'd prefer it to the current system, especially today when I'm finally seeing what it's like to internally change the offset I apply to my watch. (I went onto UTC just before the last time change.)

          My dad's always thought going to DST year round would be great, but probably somewhere between my reasoning and that lawmakers.

          I don't care what the standard is. I just don't want it to change twice a year! :)
