    Yeah, but isn't worth it to protect insanity by the masses?

    Hawaii. That seems today's best answer, for all questions.

    That, and a hammock made of very, very good calzones.

    Much easier waking up in or near daylight than having it delayed.

    I think they should move it back like 3 hours. It would be dark until 9-10 am and light until like 8 pm. That would be a plus for 9 to 5 ers.

    To be fair, it's more like having a short blanket and choosing between keeping your toes or shoulders warm, and complaining whenever you shift the blanket.

    Is that in response to the long-term neighbor's project, or snapping at the dogs? Can't hear the neighbor unless I'm outside. The dogs push my buttons. I wouldn't have anything but Border Collies and I wouldn't recommend them to anyone.

    Everything about this has probably been said except this. My initials are DST so I like everything to be DST.

    I was talking about the neighbors rattling around out there until midnight. Border Collies? Only one I ever had (briefly) I still have a scar on my hand from! Gave her to a cowgirl, I told her she would bite, she said that's alright, I'm looking for a dog like that!

    I know I'm sorta treading on the thought processes of Mr. Nojazzhere, but I think my new plan is both avant-garde and possibly brilliant. Let move the clocks ahead 14 hours! That way everyone who's been working the graveyard shift for years, will get to work in the daylight! Do it for the little people!

    It probably would.

    Americans work a lot of hours. 5 months of the year, they're either going to work in darkness or working into darkness before they knock off for the day. They really don't need to do both. What should be done is to give them a block of daylight big enough to actually do something in full sunlight, before or after the work day. They'd get more Vitamin D, more exercise, and their health would IMO improve long term. Their cars and trucks would be in better order, and their fences would get fixed and their kids would get to play catch with them. And the weekend then doesn't have to be 100% Chore City.

    That’s what happens when you go to normal time it goes dark at 5
    Obviously the impact on the darkness will be greater the farther up north you are

    Probably the darkest hour of my employment life was spent hauling LPG gas plant to plant up and down the state of California. There is some kind of tank demurrage system that I was not privileged to know about that demanded the trucks be on the road, the weather, date, time of year, or anything else on earth did not alter their being on the road, all of the time! You did not have a fixed schedule you went when you were called, and came back in when you were in that no man's land between dead tired, and dead. Poor planning necessitated my taking the job, I told them up front that when I got a chunk of money that I had coming, I was out of there. The company thought I was just trash talking. When I got the money, I took two weeks off and quit! That money changed my life for the better in many ways.

    As an aside, the electronic log book at least until they figure out a way around it precludes LPG drivers from working those kinds of hours now. I worked 640 hours in the course of two months one summer. I lived thirty five miles from my work place. I didn't have much time to rest, eat, or do much of anything else during that period. When you work that kind of schedule time ceases to have any meaning, it's either daylight or dark and you don't give a damn one way or the other.
