    Hey guys, why do you think DST is for farmers? It's a product of industrialized society and has no agrarian benefits, and farmers generally oppose it. Its major purposes are energy conservation and so people workng inside during the day have more time to enjoy lesure and retail opportunities in the daylight after getting off work.

    Many of us heard, at some point in elementary school, that DST was developed because of farming. The idea that more daylight means more time in the field for farmers continues to get airtime on the occasional local news report and in state legislatures — “Farmers wanted it because it extends hours of working in the field,” Texas state Rep. Dan Flynn offered after filing a bill that would abolish DST. Even Michael Downing, who wrote a book about DST, has said that before researching the subject, “I always thought we did it for the farmers.”

    In fact, the inverse is true. “The farmers were the reason we never had a peacetime daylight saving time until 1966,” Downing told National Geographic. “They had a powerful lobby and were against it vociferously.” The lost hour of morning light meant they had to rush to get their crops to market. Dairy farmers were particularly flummoxed: Cows adjust to schedule shifts rather poorly, apparently.

    Daylight saving time, in this or any other country, was never adopted to benefit farmers; it was first proposed by William Willett to the British Parliament in 1907 as a way to take full advantage of the day’s light. Germany was the first country to implement it, and the United States took up the practice upon entering World War I, hypothetically to save energy. How did farmers end up being the mythical source of DST? Downing suggests that because they were such vocal opponents, “they became associated into the popular image of daylight-saving and it got inverted on them. It was just bad luck.”

    How old are we getting that 1 hour difference in wakey wakey time causes such a stir? I am probably on the older end of the spectrum here but my schedule is never so rigid that an hour will make or break my week.

    This is through dumbest fucking argument in this thread.

    It isn't like we'd just remove 1 of 2 days of DLST. We'd remove them both and then it would be light outside a normal amount depending on the earth's tilt. Fuck it getting dark at 5pm on the other half of the year

    Daylight savings allows for light later in the day. If they were both removed and we used standard time all year it would still be dark early in the winter and it would also be darker earlier in the summer. How hard is that to understand?
