    For what it’s worth, the EU voted to discontinue their version of DST (called “Summer Time). Not known is which countries are going to adopt year round Summer Time or year round Winter Time. Also not known is whether any countries will decide to continue changing their clocks – though that seems unlikely since the point of the vote in Brussels was a rebellion against the twice a year clock change.

    Their dates for time change were the same as ours prior to Bush. Their change (would have been) 28 March (last weekend in March and last weekend in October).

    Next to the Colorado Center for the Blind, Littleton, suburb of Denver, is a sundial that adjusts for Daylight Saving Time.

    It’s a round disk, pitched at about a 30 degree angle to the ground, with a sundial on each side. In summer, the sun is higher and illuminates the top sundial. In winter, the sun is lower and illuminates the bottom sundial. The two sundials are calibrated, you guessed it, to be one hour different.

    DST as a concept does not makes sense. You are not losing or gaining an hour, it is all the same time.

    Thankfully it does not exist where I live.

    The longest day here in Edmonton is 17 full hours of sunlight. The shortest day is 7 1/2 hours. And yet some people figured we needed to save daylight in the summer. I like the long summer days and I really dislike the fact that it gets dark at 4:30 in winter.

    The worst part for me isn’t the setting of the clocks or even the delusion that it does any good. The worst part is the two weeks of disrupted sleep that always accompanies the time change — at either end. NOT worth it!

    My understanding is that Benjamin Franklin came up with the idea of ‘Daylight-Saving Time’ as a joke, that it was regarded as such for over a century, and that some moron with more influence than brains decided it was a good idea along about World War One.

    Some Senator is starting a bill to keep saving time permanently.

    But Nixion tried this during the oil shortage in the 70’s. School kids were getting hit by cars because it was too dark in the Winter for the morning pick up.

    I too want to stop the time change, but stay on standard time.

    I lived in Arizona for almost 25 years and we never messed with that DST nonsense ( except on the Navajo Reservation ). I’ve been residing in Ecuador for the past 9 years, where again, we sensibly leave time alone.

    The period in between, was 15 years spent in Florida – of course, they had to go on DST! … Well, it was Florida, so what would you expect?

    two points….. since stonehenge is on the ground,and not hanging like a clock, wouldn’t they move to the RIGHT to move it one hour forward?…… And….. as a high school baseball coach in the north-coast area of the US of A we love daylight time ’cause we can play later into the afternoon without running out of light…..

    It took an industrial revolution to make playing with the clock worthwhile. Have you ever noticed it’s guys who wear suits and don’t have to work until 10:00 am that pass these crazy laws. Move it forward, move it back, I don’t care: just leave it alone. It’s a horrible adjustment to body rhythms imposed on early risers twice yearly.

    There was a time (heh) when every little burg in America kept its own time, based on when the sun came up there. Drove the railroads nuts, because they could never figure out how to print their schedules so that everybody could understand them. That was the motive for standardizing on 24 (more or less) world-wide time zones in the first place.

    Now it’s time to take the next step and standardize on Universal Time (UT) all around the world (like all the civilizations that the Enterprise ever visited on Star Trek). So what if the sun comes up at 17:00 (= 5:00 PM) where you live? Open for business at 18:00. And if, several months later, the sun is coming up at 16:00 instead, just tell everybody your store hours are changing to 17:00 for the duration of the summer. Stores are doing this all the time anyway, with holiday-shopping hours and the like, and they don’t feel compelled to make everybody else around them change their watches every time they do it.

    Ah yes, daylight saving time, or as I refer to it… Daylight STUPID Time.

    If someone wants an extra hour of daylight in the afternoon then they can get up an hour earlier and leave the rest of us alone.

    There’s a reason it’s called STANDARD Time, that is the time we NEED to standardize on!
