When are we just going to get rid of Daylight Savings Time???

[rant]
The whole concept is annoying.  It certainly doesn't "save" any daylight, it just moves some from morning until evening making Mondays that much more fun to get up for! 
 
The only reasoning I ever heard had to do with farmers, which is nonsense.  Then they extend it to a much large portion of the year - why?
 
Just pick one of the two times and stick with it!

DST is very confusing if you are in AZ, as they are the only state that doesn't observe it.

Silence is so accurate

You don't give it away. It's on loan till next fall.
 
At least they didn't delete the time zone to your East moving your day up 1 hour so that DST is actually 2 hours off like they did for us (remember Yukon time?). On the "brighter" side, we're now 1 hour closer to the rest of the world.
 
When I worked nights I'd get to see the sun rise around 6AM this time of year only to set the clock ahead and wait 1 week to see it rise again at 6AM. It felt like going back in time and reliving that week. Depressing. But not for long. After Equinox we gain over 7 min. a day until the Solstice when the "sun never sets" (true DST midnight here is 2AM).
 
Even so, to me it makes absolutely no difference what time "they" say it is... I'll still be 5 min. late.

Indiana decided to go to DST 10-15 years ago. We did just fine without it for the last 185 years before that. The governor gave some BS story of why it was a great thing. To me, it's still just BS....

craigb for Time Zone Czar!!
 
I remember sometimes being on three time zones at the same time.  Local, Port and GMT - each being a reference for different activities/systems.  We also did 6 on, 12 off for months at a time.  That's how I ended up with gray ears

I'd rather keep DST all year round.
Living in Canada, i appreciate the extra daylight in the summer evenings when I can make use of it.  In the winter it's only light when I'm at work, and too cold to enjoy anything outside anyway.

It does indeed work well for those closer to the poles. It was of course, as mentioned, mostly for agricultural purposes but these days it serves an actually pretty good unintended purposes. Less car accidents due to higher visibility during after work traffic. I read somewhere that if it was removed the estimated extra motor vehicle accidents would rise not unsignificantly.
 
Extra time for kids (and adults) to get some extra vitamin D is likely a pretty good side benefit as well.
 
On a related topic... I was wondering why I felt so exhausted today seeing as how I got up at my usual "sleep in" hour (which is 9am and has infuriatingly been occurring more often than I like these days). Totes forgot about the time change. Is good though because hopefully I'll be tired enough to actually pass out at my desired "old lady" bedtime.

I'm a little concerned that I'm somehow expected to play a role in saving daylight. I don't recall signing up for that. I'm reasonably certain that I have no such qualifications. I mean, for years I've been trying (and failing) to convince people that there's a giant ball of fire in the sky. No, really, there is. It's out there almost every day. Everybody just ignores it and pretends that it's "Normal" or something. It's just not natural.
 
Now, I'm expected to help save daylight? Unless the whole idea is to fail miserably and have a convenient scapegoat to blame for the entire mess, I can't th...

The guys in the UK and some of out here in the Pacific Northwest lately might think that giant ball of fire is a myth since we don't see it.

I must be one of those rare people who has absolutely zero opinion on the pros and cons of daylight saving. I invariably hear about it the night when you're supposed to adjust your clocks, or sometimes the news completely bypasses me and since my phone updates its time automatically, and I use my phone to wake me up, I don't even have to know about it. I may feel a little more tired than usual for the first half hour of the morning, but the feeling passes and then daylight saving is my new reality and I just work with it.
