Daylight Saving Time ends this weekend.

Assuming you're a Yank or a Canuck (and assuming you're not from Hawaii, Arizona or Saskatchewan), this Sunday morning you'll be getting a return on that one-hour deposit you made about eight months ago.

I plan on using my extra hour to play Ice Climber.

And I get no interest?!

What a waste. Should've banked with Father Time and not Chronos.

Great, now my toddler will wake up at 4:45 instead of 5:45.

DST is the worst

Pffft. The time-change is going to take place during my train-ride back to Milwaukee; evidently, rather than simply adjusting the schedule this one night of the year, the established plan is to sit at the nearest stop for a full hour and wait for time to catch up. It's so dang stupid, man.

I like DST. I'd rather just keep it. I don't need the sun to be up when I'm sleeping.
Now I know there's a reason you shouldn't blame others when you do something wrong, and that reason is: you might get caught and have to apologize to a bunch of dumb peasants.

DST or no DST, I don’t friggin’ care, we just need to pick one and stick with it. The changing of the hour is asinine and stupid.

I'd rather not be shifted an hour off from the rest of the hemisphere for literally no practical reason whatsoever. Get GMT to jump forward an hour, & then we can talk about making it permanent.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

If Americans cared what the rest of the world thinks, we'd be using metric. MA has a compromise. Abolish DST but just move to a new time zone. They don't want a buy in from the farmer in Guatemala, just their neighbors. I'd support this. People don't like when it's dark at 4 in the afternoon.

Use it at night so it instantly becomes day, angering everyone in my neighborhood.
