I like earlier dark evenings. I'm a night person.

I’m a night person, too, but I’m just beginning to feel halfway decent, and it’s getting dark now, negating my being able to get out and take a walk, etc! Lol

It’s called “Standard Time” because it’s per GMT.... Arizona stays on ST year round and they’re fine. DST is stupid.

I would rather have it dark at 4pm then when I go to work in the morning.

I know some people that it’s dark when they go in and dark when they get off. Kind of depressing! Lol

So do I. I think we're actually a majority, but there are some holdouts for dropping Daylight Saving Time and going back to just Standard Time only.

I think probably most of us would like to stop the insanity of *changing* the time, though. I saw a good piece on Mashable's Facebook page explaining why it's really a bad idea today, but I couldn't find a link for it.

I’ve read that it causes all kinds of stress, health problems, accidents, and even deaths!

Exactly! Well, maybe/probably, at least. And for little or no benefit. Your comment made me go to the Mashable web site and find a link, after all.

If you watch the video (it's just a few minutes long) be sure to read the questions on the screen. He doesn't repeat them when he addresses & answers them.

Regarding the (scary!) health-related stuff, they mention some studies but there's no way to tell how good the studies were, and whether they found *causation*, or just correlation.

Also, this makes me think about similar effects with jet lag in travel, and (probably even worse) people who rotate shifts at work on a regular basis. Yikes.

YIKES! The way I understand it, that is saying that Daylight Saving Time is the PROBLEM. But I’ve always seen it the other way around—that people are more depressed with less daylight hours! What am I missing? I would HATE it if we switched that way and it got dark in the summer earlier—no more long days at the lake, etc.

I’m for going the OTHER direction—staying on Daylight Saving Time all year!

At least the kids won’t have to have flashlights in the AM walking to the bus or school. We have no sidewalks or streetlights.

Yes, I was just talking to hubby about that. He said the kids are getting on his bus in the dark in the mornings. But this will make it where they’re getting off his bus in the dark in the afternoons! I don’t know which is worse! Lol

I remember both those situations well from driving my own school bus. I hated both. So dangerous for kids.

They are usual getting home by 3 here. I see then walking down around 7:30. I would leave it EST all year! I like the early mornings.

Hubby has to leave the house at 6:15 AM and many times doesn’t get home in the afternoon until 5:30 PM!

Our kids don’t even get out of school until 3 PM.

Mine, too! I HATE it! By the time hubby gets home, it’s dark!

Remember that the "real" time is not the one we use now but the one we are using next week.

Forgot all about it, so I got up at 4:50 this morning.

Made more coffee knowing we'd need it.

Thanks, but there are any number of times when I'm not on SOH, and that evening was one.

Nice try though.
