Daylight Savings Time

Recommended Posts

nobody even told me...

i saw the time was about 1:30am last night and decided its time to go to bed. so i get off the computer and go brush my teeth and get my music and whatnot, then as i get in bed i see my alarm clock reads 2:40 something and i'm like WTH!?!??? what was i doing for an hour?? then i checked my cellphone and saw the time was actually 1:40 and remembered daylight saving time.

why can't they just leave the d**n clocks alone... >:(

Its good so the kids don't have to wait for the bus or walk to school in the dark.  I don't mind it for that reason.

Here's an interesting trivia question:  What was the first country to adopt daylight savings time and why?

USA.

Because we wanted to be complex, and be different? :-?

It's Germany though, during the war iirc

I think that's right. Did you know that off of the top of your head?

If so, that's pretty impressive.

I thought it originated to help out farmers in some way. Don't remember how it helped/helps them, or if this is even true.

Too lazy to google it.

Germany did it in WWI for 2 reasons: 

1. To save coal and

2. To gain a military edge.

Obviously #2 didn't work.  ;)

I heard that it gave farmers more time to tend to their crops, but I really have no idea.

When I was working on my undergrad, I was a student in southern Indiana. Portions of the state do not recognize DST...that got a little weird. Well, that and the whole dry Sunday thing.

I remember trying to secure some beverages for the first Packer game of the season, and we had to drive with a legal foreign exchange student waaay into KY for suds. That sucked, as I felt pretty crappy about wasting Tsuyoshi's morning.
