The three western US states are considering the switch so we might as well get in line.

Know it all.

I can't for the life of me figure out why so many people want it to be dark from 8-9 pm in June and July so it can be light from 4-5 am.  Daylight Saving Time makes perfect sense.

Maybe because people don't want it to be dark at 9:00 AM in December and January.

Then they are severely confused, because getting rid of Daylight Saving Time will have absolutely no effect on anything in December and January. And keeping it year-round will only make it darker in the winter mornings.

Isn't that what I said above?

Perhaps we're in virulent agreement. I prefer leaving things as they are, DST in the summer, standard time in the winter. That is all.

My preference is to keep DST all year round.

 

2nd choice would be keep PST all year round.

 

Final choice is keep their heads up their butts and make no change.

I like how all of BC's other issues have been addressed/solved so now we can finally focus on this.

Ignore it. It balances itself out later in the year.

I for one don't mind it being dark at night when it's supposed to be dark.

It does help with the whole going to bed thing, that's for sure.

Just as we crawl out of the seemingly perpetual darkness with light skies when morning's alarm goes off, the time change throws us back into winter's inky clutches for another month.

 

That's the worst part for me. 

 

I'll be late tomorrow, Boss. Sorry.

If you can within your body remember something in your mind or experience the past in the form of a dream isn’t that the past energy in the present? Therefore time travel is occurring?

The feds are looking at it too, and Trump is in support (for now anyways): https://www.cnn.com/...ime/index.html

BC government has a survey on DST. Despite the question about "would you like is to just follow what the pacific coast is doing in relations to this" I have a feeling we're just going to follow California no matter what they do anyway https://engage.gov.b...ightsavingtime/

The very first question is obviously leading to begin with. That said, I think we should just do what California et al. are doing anyways (in this particular policy/case anyways, not most!).
