    Yeah wasn't the original purpose of DST originally created by Benjamin Franklin to assist farmers who needed an extra hour in the day?

    Unless farmer today still need DST I see little reason to keep it at all.

    According to the farmers I grew up around, DST is an evil affliction put upon them by the governor to confuse them when they go into town

    Well then by all means DST is essentially worthless, it should be phased out then.

    I understand why, working at a nursery. When it's winter, night falls earlier, so you need to set the time back so that you aren't working in the dark.

    I like more daylight in the evening, morning people are wierdos, go back to bed!

    The way I remember if you lose an hours sleep or gain an hour, is winters coming you get an extra hour sleep to soften the blow, summers coming you lose an hour in payment for the warm weather.

    I hate it. I wish they would stop it. It serves no purpose and only confuses things, especially when not all states observe it. It's especially torturous in the fall when you speed up the process and its dark before you leave work.
    Type 6w5 sp/so/sx I think..I have not fully explored this and just discovered it.

    I'm annoyed that it went from being light when I left for work to now being dark when I leave

    I personally think that it's archaic and pointless, like most aspects of our time system.

    It doesn't MATTER what you call the hours, "moving time" in order to extend daylight later into the day is rather silly.

    In fact, read this thread:

    http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...tric-time.html

    No one agreed with me, though.

    On top of that, I prefer less light in the evening, anyway... I love seeing the city at night.

    I would be comfortable with 24-hour time as well.

    This. I'd be miserable no matter how dark it was if I had to get up super early in the morning. I'd much rather have the extra hour of light at night. I am much more easily depressed when it gets dark between 5 and 6. I EXPECT mornings to be depressing.

    Why not operate with the sun, rather than against it? The problem is we place more emphasis on the numbers, on the symbolic representations of time, rather than the real cause of a significant determining factor for when we decide to do things. It is a bit amusing that we would come to this solution. It gives us a sense of control over time, I suppose. We like to be in control. It is good to be in control.
