    When told the reason for daylight savings time the Old Indian said, "Only the government would believe that you could cut a foot off the top of a blanket, sew it to the bottom, and have a longer blanket."

    We're just falling back to "standard time", so this really is "regular time"

    Furthermore, despite losing an hour when they "spring ahead", most people applaud and welcome the longer summertime evenings....well, guess what folks...that IS "daylight savings time".

    I don't mind the Fall Back weekend because I get an extra hour of sleep.

    What I don't like is having to give it back in the Spring!! :?

    Just leave the time alone - lets "fall back" or "spring forward" - and keep it there. I'm just tired of the time changes and the adjustment....

    I don't find it so difficult to be flexible.

    You all seem so rigid when you think it's such a big problem. :? :P

    An extra hour of drinking is always welcome by me.

    But yeah the early darkness sucks.

    I know it is going to be dark but I really am looking forward to that extra hour of sleep. Haven't got much all week, been dragging my sorry carcass out of bed to study at 5:30am.

    On the NBS news tonight, Brian Williams said there will one more hour of darkness to deal with this weekend as we set the clocks back. One more hour of darkness? Does the earth shift on its axis 1/24th of a day this weekend???

    this blows. i don't mind the shorter days, but like rick said, i'd much rather go to work in the dark vs. drive home in it. at least i'm not in canada or alaska

    I generally hate the time changings, but I have found it's been easier for me to get up out of bed in the morning lately when my alarm clock goes off. Of course, that just means before the time change I was hitting snooze for about an hour before getting out of bed. :fp: :lol:

    Dark and cold in the morning.... dark and cold in the evening. :(

    well at least after 11 days of rain and cloudy gray, we finally have some sunshine today.
