What?! I'm a major advocate for daylight savings time! I'm deeply disturbed by these posts.
Just kidding. I also think it is stupid.
Right now, after daylight savings time, when I get up a 7am, it's bright enough that I can see where I am going without walking into a telephone pole (the catch is that I don't do this even an hour earlier).
Where I live, they would have to do daylight savings time a few more times up until the middle of winter, because two or three weeks from now, it will be just as dark as it was before the time change. I guess the change is not so extreme South of my location, but still, I can empathize with Southerners who want to see daylight savings disappear.
Does anyone actually care if they have to choose between dark or darker when it comes to the natural lighting as they head to school or work? If not, we should scrap the time change.
And I mean, like, we've invented lightbulbs and all that stuff too. That must count for something...
Whose idea was daylight savings time anyhow?
