@blueveinedthrobber,
Sorry to correct you.
The length of the day and night does not change with daylight savings time.
Where I live the day by natur gets to be about 10 minutes longer over two days.
March 29nd the day is 12hours and 56 minutes and the night is 11hours and 38 minutes
March 30 is daylight saving time day
March 31st the day is 13hours and 5 minutes and the night is 10 hours and 55 minutes.

This is a lie.

The number of hours of daylight is almost exactly the same to day as it was yesterday. Changing what the clock says is just a cruel trick. There is no real "extra hour of daylight". The only thing that is real is that I was robbed of an hour of sleep that I won't get back for 6 months.

Daylight savings time is a hoax.... nothing is being saved.

Wait.

Is it true what some are saying here, that we don't actually get an extra hour, making a total of 25 in a day?

Well that sucks.

@maxdancona,
you didn't lose an hour of sleep. The clock just said something different when you woke up. Unless of course you're one of those unlucky schmucks who has to set a clock to get up for work and that..... well that;s just poor life decisions and there's no one to blame but yourself.

@blueveinedthrobber,
One of the greatest joys I've had for the last few months is that except for a few days here and there I have slept until my eyes opened on their own accord.

Bliss.

@blueveinedthrobber,
The time when I am most set to go has long been something like 4:00 pm. Finally ready to kick. Best for painting, best for design ideas, best for cooking, best for cleaning my swath. My personal clock.

I assume the rest of us differ, but that's me.
As said before, I like light, and more at times I'm ticking.

I wish thay 'd stop jiggling the time around.
I don t like re-setting my clocks n watches.

There is a bill in the Legislature of Florida
to keep it the same. I 'm gonna lobby for it.

@OmSigDAVID,
In the spring it is easy to set the clocks
In the fall it is a nuisance, so I always let one clock tick away the same way all year around.
We are warned not to be in the sun at noon. Noon is between 12 and one. With daylight saving time people look at their watch and stay out of the sun between 11 and 12

I trust everyone has recovered from the life changing trauma of jiggling the clocks around and will take the next several months to gird their loins for it happening again in the Fall. The horror, it never ends.
