    The New Zealand guy knew the amount of daylight wouldn’t change, but he probably just wanted to get to the pub before last call or something like that.

    I reckon much of the cast are changing nowadays. Could be a portent.
    The biggest potential for change actually is Dirk. I’ve been considering his place in this show lately.
    Either write him out forever or more likely show that he has truly reformed.

    DST is a pointless scam. Give me standard time year-round!

    This is why we don’t need to see Bernice…….

    We had that for a couple of years in the 1970’s. Was shouted down. My impression was that some of the loudest shouters were parents whose children had to wait for school buses in the dark. That started the string of compromises that led to where we are now.
    In the 1970s the justification for year-round DST was supposedly energy conservation. but I’ve never seen any studies that demonstrate that this is actually true.

    At last, Bernice is not pure kill-joy sarcasm.

    As I have been saying, DST needs to be reduced. Back in the many years gone by, it was saving a lot of things, but not anymore. My proposal is have DST begin on the last Sunday in May and then end on the first Sunday in September. Keep in mind this was the G. W. Bush Administration that came up with this idiotic idea to expand DST. My group has come with a more intelligent idea to reduce it!

    It may not save anything, but it does mean the sun goes down and comes up later. Since my day starts and ends late, I prefer it like that.

    I would rather have longer daylight in the evening not AM. I say turn the clock 1/2 hr and leave it there.

    Actually, studies show that it doesn’t save energy at all, in fact it probably contributes to more energy consumption. If you have an extra hour of daylight in the evening, what do most people do? Hop in their cars and go play golf, etc. I wish they would just keep it one way or the other—studies HAVE shown that the week after the Spring Forward there are considerably more automobile and workplace accidents due to people losing that hour of sleep.

    I use to like Bernice but any more she’s just sarcastic and not supportive of her supposedly best friend. And she’s become very boring. Lu needs to find better friends.

    Well Yes the amount of light does change depending on how far you are away from the equator ,there is no reason for the nonsense of setting clocks twice a year.

    Hawaii maintains the same time year round too, but that actually makes logical sense, they are tropical and it would be pointless to shift clocks around as they have exactly 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night.

    I am all for eliminating daylight savings. I am a parent and never has my kid has to wait for the bus in the dark on standard time. Most kids don’t take the bus anymore any ways, most are children are driven to school.

    Europe have DST since the early 70s. A study was published some 15 or 20 years ago showing that yearly energy saved was in the 0,3 percent bracket. What was saved in the evening was mostly spent in the morning at the beginning and the end of DST. In midsummer it was more or less an equilibrium.
    Apart from the saved energy DST meant an economical increase in expenditure, as dairy cattle spent less milk for at couple of weeks, trafic accidents and work accidents increased heavyly meaning extra spending for hospitals and decreased production.
    The conclusion of the study was that it does not pay off to go to DST a part of the year. Better would be to either stick to GMT or go permanently for DST making it the new GMT.
