Do you like to fall back, or spring forward with the time? Which is better for you, and why?

Spring Forward, Fall Back? Why Do The Clocks Change at Certain Times Of The Year?

Well it is considered daylight savings in the summer, because the days are generally longer, they spring the time forward in the spring so when most people get home from work it is already light out and they don't have to turn many lights on. In North America this year we changed the clocks forward about a month early. The main benefit to this is in the spring and fall. In summer with daylight savings the sun doesn't set until like 11pm, but without day light savings it would be light out at 3 in the morning, so it's a trade off.

Do I spring forward tonight or tomorrow night?

Time Change: "Spring Forward" Anyone think it is unnecessary?

Paranoid answer: it is because the man wants to keep us down by continually changing the time every 6 months, our circadian rhythms are jacked up, so we are too tired to better ourselves through eating better, exercising, and maybe going back to school to get better degrees and a better education. Non-paranoid answer: it is so that we have extra daylight time at the end of the day to spend outdoors with our families exercising so we can burn more calories and be healthier, fitter, and happier.

When did scientists discover we needed to spring forward and fall back 1 hour.?

Nobody "discovered" you have to have daylight savings time. You simply decide you want to alter the clock so that you have more daylight in the evening and less in the morning. It was a legislative thing. But you are not getting anything from nature that isn;t already there. And farmers were not affected by it either. They've always got up with the sun and gone back in when it got dark. During WWII people started to realize that we could conserve electricity by altering the day to take advantage of daylight in the evening. The business community was great proponent also, since most people do shopping after work rather than in the morning and they do more shopping in daylight than in the dark. One year they experimented with staying on daylight savings time. But it was dark so late in the morning, when kids were going back to school, that it was considered too dangerous for kids with regard to traffic. So he we are.

College Students: Are you looking forward to Spring Semester starting?

My university does quarters instead of semesters...so I already started the Winter session. Enjoy your time or possibly prepare for the next courses...


Yes, what a waste of TIME. Pun intended. Is it not time to quit this idiotic ritual? It was put in in WW ll. So that there would still be daylight left to work our Victory Gardens when we got home from work. Since very few people can even grow gardens any more let alone can the vegies for winter use, let us stop always moving time around. There is no time for this nonsense. It seems worse to lose an hours sleep in the Spring than to gain an hour in the Fall. STOP MOVING TIME AROUND ALL THE TIME.!!!!!
