  • Has everyone survived? Please report in!

    Expecting lots of casualties.

    Fingers worn down to the bone from holding in "Time" while pressing "Fast"...

    Tennis elbow from rotating the little black dial on the back of the wall clock...

    Posttraumatic stress disorder from taking on the C H M buttons in the car...

      Anyone know how to adjust a sun dial?

            I'm just happy that you golf-lovin', little leage'lovin', yard work lovin' and suntan-lovin' folks are so thrilled by "artificial time."
            My father-in-law was hospitalized yesterday and my wife told her mother that she'd be over to take her to the hospital to see him. My wife made the mistake of mentioning that the time would change today so he mother needed to "adjust" her clocks. Well, this put even more panic into an 81 years old that had enough panic on her plate.
            I'm sure that other senior citizens have similar feelings toward this silly time manipulation.
            Not effing with our clocks worked for over 30 years and it could work today.
            Thanks for you "time."
            Oh, and most of "time manipulators" are always "right."
            Have a very blessed day!

              I always get a kick out of the people who claim how silly this is. Problem is, it was needed to keep us in sync with the rest of the country. We spent time in 2 different time zones, which creates confusion in many different ways.

                So, we were out of "sync" for all those years?
                How in the world did we survive? And how does a city like Chicago survive in a different time zone?
                Have a very blessed day!

                    Chicago is on the same time RELATIVE to the rest of the country all year long. They are always an hour behind New York and 2 hours ahead of Los Angeles. Most of Indiana was on the same time as New York in the winter months and the same time as Chicago in the summer months.

                    One problem was TV. A show like American Idol that had the live results show at 8:30 eastern time was shown in Indy at 8:30, but it really was aired at 7:30 and the local tv station had to tape it and broadcast rebroadcast it. Same with the NBC nightly news, etc. However, when it came to sports, and they advertised from the network level, Monday night football, at 9:00, in Indy, the game started at 8:00 until the rest of the country changed their time in the fall and then it was 9:00.

                    You see, in Chicago, they know automatically that they are an hour behind eastern time. Add to it, nobody knew what time it was in Indiana, it was something that needed to be done.

                      Unfortunately, I took a nap yesterdat---I know...really bad day to do it.
                      Even after the arduous task of resetting clocks at my Dads,
                      I still didn't get to sleep until 3:00 a.m.

                      Yeah, I feel great...
                      ...Honey, where do we keep the fridge?

                              As I said in the other thread, I'm not loving the idea of losing 2% of my weekend.

                              Although physically changing my clocks feels like an exercise in futility, that was never at the core of my argument against this nonsense.

                              BTW, I see a lot of people (including in this thread) who say that Indiana needed to observe DST to keep up with "everybody else." Well, that's an argument in itself. However, it does nothing whatsover to support the concept of DST.

                              It was a roughly 50-50 split for Hoosiers, and a lot of the argument surrounded the idea of keeping up with "everybody else." But if you polled all Americans who currently observe DST, I would be very interested in seeing the results.
                              No weather forecasts are ever guaranteed, even if confidence level is high. Even a 99% probability will miss 1% of the time. That's the best anybody can do when predicting highly complex events.
