    No, this is the one that sucks because it takes daylight away from the evening time and makes it get dark super early just so we can have a little more light in the morning when no one cares.

    Daylight time >>>>>>>>>>> Standard time

    Latitude, how does it work?

    Time zone effects are amplified further toward the poles, at least cancelling out any actual longitudinal difference, IMO

    I'd wager I've already said this before, but this weekend, a state on the west coast and a state on the east coast will be in the same time zone.

    Pensacola, Florida is in the Central time zone. Malheur County, Oregon, is in the Mountain zone.

    At 3:00 a.m. Sunday, Pensacola will fall back to 2 a.m.... which is what time it will be there in eastern Oregon.

    A move to permanent daylight saving time (staying on summer hours all year with no time shifts) is sometimes advocated and is currently implemented in some jurisdictions such as Argentina, Belarus, Saskatchewan, Iceland, Kyrgyzstan, Malaysia, Morocco, Namibia, Singapore, Turkey, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.

    I thought everyone falls back to 2 a.m., but yeah, maybe they never make it 2 a.m. in the first place.

    The clocks change at 2 a.m. DST – which is still a little confusing, if one's trying to get it down to the second.

    So like, you're watching the Weather Channel to see it happen live in real time. Does it go 01:59:59, 02:00:00, 01:00:01? Remember, it changes at 2 a.m., not 1:59.

    I heard fall back at two, and thought fall back to two. Which, by the example above, is the only time repeated during the long night.

    Trying to figure this out (not sure if I succeeded,) I learned that while the U.S. changes from time zone to time zone, like we're all doing the wave from coast to coast, the European Union changes all of their clocks at the same exact moment, whether they're at GMT 0, +1 or +2.

    Farmers were actually looking for a way to sell 0.12% more food by making one day feel extra long and in need of a fourth meal that day.

    No more clock changes in South Carolina? Bill approved to adopt daylight saving year-round
    South Carolina is one step closer to doing away with the time changes associated with daylight saving time.

    South Carolina is one step closer to doing away with the time changes associated with daylight saving time.

    Lawmakers are answering those cries to stop rolling back the clocks.

    A bill that would observe daylight saving time as the state's standard time is now on the way to the governor's desk.

    The proposal passed unanimously in the Senate. In the House, almost a dozen lawmakers voted against the measure.

    But even lawmakers on board with the change are aware of the concerns of how to implement it.

    Even though the General Assembly voted in favor of the bill, Congress would first have to give permission to do away with the time change before it can go into effect.

    Pretty sure I've posted this before but next Monday (Monday immediately after DST) is on average the day with the highest number of fatal traffic incidents of the year.

    End this nonsense already, it costs more energy during DST and more people die.
