Dayline (in)Sanity Time
« on: October 25, 2009, 07:58:13 am »
Once again we've entered Daylight inSanity Time, that magical time of the year between when all the old hard-automated DST clocks do their thing, and when the -new- DST automated clocks do their thing.  When congress just arbitrarily moved, instead of abolishing, this stupid hour shift in time is when I lost faith in congress ever doing anything smart...

Why couldn't they just make us have time without this insanity, I don't care if they stupidly make 8am sunrise, as long as that time doesn't shift over the year.  Everything else will adjust more naturally (like work hours from 10am to 7pm)...

Do you have your weekends wrong...? I thought we went out of DST this year next Sunday, on November 1st.

Edit:
Here's some news sources to back up this claim:

Edit 2:
And here's a screenshot of the clock page from my computer:

Actually Mr_Mustash I just checked my calendar and you are quite correct! Daylight Savings Time ends Sunday, November 1st.
