Default Are you pro or con about daylight savings time?

Come November 48 states will be rolling back their clocks. I think many will be surprised that many countries have tried and abandoned the idea as the following Wikipedia article shows: Daylight saving time - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (me, I don't give a rat's ass either way). So where do you stand on dst?

Who cares? Is this all you do go out and find things to bitch about?

I'm for it, here in Australia we do not have the winters like the Northen Hemisphere so the longer days with nice weather is a bonus especially when you finish work for the day and still have many hours of daylight to enjoy your self.

I would say with certainty majority of Aussies approve of it and we have had it for over 30 years.

It's what you make out of this thread. If you check my threads overall, you'll see what you stated isn't true.

Good Lord, one thing that is a constant. There is always someone, on every forum, that is ready to pounce, denounce, take the negative initiative, on almost any statement.

When you reach my age you realize that time, any time, Eastern, Western, Central, Daylight Savings, Standard, Greenwich Mean, or Mountain time, is bad time. Anything that makes you older at my age really sucks rocks!

I like daylight saving because it gives me more time to do things outside and you can still enjoy the nice summer weather in the evening..
