Pointless Time Change

I found that hour that someone stole from me in the spring.

I do not see the point in daylight saving time. There are numerous justifications for requiring us to change our clocks around, but I don’t think the reasons are very compelling. I suggest that we do away with the daylight saving altogether. I suppose I could move to Arizona, Hawai’i, or one of 77 counties in Indiana.


  • i liked my extra hour's sleep today. I went to a ramen restaurant a couple of weeks ago in the east village. it was very good, even though it's hard to eat with chopsticks. by the way, did you hear about all of manhattan smelling like syrup and waffles??

  • I read about that in the Saturday New York Times. Were you able to get to the bottom of that mysterious aroma?

  • no, it remains a mystery. i never even smelled it. i guess i'm in a safer area of manhattan that is not prone to syrupy smells.

  • I hate daylight savings time in the Spring. I love it in the Fall.

    But, I agree with you. It's stupid. It's not like anyone farms anymore....

  • It wasn't even supported by the farmers. The farmers hated it. It was the merchants that pushed for it.

  • I think we should just set the clocks back an hour twice a year. Screw setting it forward.

  • My inlaws live in one of the counties in Indiana that doesn't do Daylight savings. They can't stand it.

  • Why do the in-laws not like foregoing the inconvenience of the time change? Is it because they are an hour different from the rest of the country for half the year?
