    Default Daylight savings

    OK, I hate this time of year, I have problems with sleeping after the spring daylight saving change, don't know what it is but it wipes out my bio clock and it is taking longer and longer due to my age to sync back up.

    How many out there would like to see daylight savings go away???? I would, fix it in place and leave it alone, or move the clocks a half hour and leave them, in my opinion it's outmoded, it was started back in 1908, now days almost no one would really need it.

    Any others with opinions on this??

    I say do away with it. Nature adjust the amount of daylight as time goes along during the year anyway.
    Man looks in the abyss, there's nothing staring back at him. At that moment,
    man finds his character. And that is what keeps him out of the abyss.

    Time is Mans imagination, our measurement of time is minuscule to the Universe, travel at or near the speed of light and time as we measure it will almost stand still.

    Standard time year round for me. It adjusts automatically in the summer and we'd never have to screw with all our clocks twice a year, that sucks!

    When we fall back its gets dark around 5 on the shortest days.Spring forward as we just did
    sun down is around 7 but as the days get longer towards june 22 the longest days of the year
    sun down is around 8:30. Perfect for top water bass fishin and stayin out on the lake instead of sittin
    home listening to the commies that make up this once fine state!
