    Don't forget to set your clocks back one hour before you go to bed tonight.

    I love gaining an hour of sleep. :)

    (Except for those in AZ and HI)

    You are beginning to post like me, you love hate. ;)

    Is that a love hate relationship you have with daylight savings time?

    I guess I need to read better. ;)

    I edited my first post because I thought we lost an hour of sleep. I did have "I hate loosing an hour of sleep." Then Aaron corrected me.

    I knew what you meant, but I had to jack with you a little bit. I am terrible about not proof reading my post.

    That ok, we all make mistakes! :rofl2:


    The common way on how I remember is:

    Fall Back - Gain an hour of sleep :)
    Spring Forward - Loose an hour of sleep :(

    I think we should eliminate DST altogether. We should follow in Arizona and Hawaii's footsteps and throw a big middle finger at DST...then kick it in the nuts. :D

    I agree, when I use to live in other cities. I use to hate to move all my clocks couple of times a year.

    A rep point for anyone that knows who invented Daylight Savings Time
     
  14. Ben Franklin discussed it a long, long time ago. Obviously it took a while before the idea caught on.

    NOOOOOO! I have a friend in AZ that hates DST. After years, I still don't understand it, but I've never lived there, and she hasn't lived in a place with DST.

    And last night we got home from NYC after 2AM, didn't sleep till 5:30 or so. Extra hour??? Where? lol

    :peace:

    Heard an interesting study... the morning after clocks are turned back, numbers of heart attacks drop significantly. Morning after moving forward, numbers of heart attacks jump.

    blyons200 These pretzels are making me thirsty.

    I think we should move the clocks ahead one hour and then leave it there.
