Daylight Savings: Love It or Leave It?

For all of us here in the Northern Hemisphere, today marks the end of Daylight Savings Time for 2018.

There is much controversy over whether this should still be observed, considering it's a rather outdated system meant for farmers who have admitted they themselves don't even find the need to use it anymore.

So what do you think? Keep it or toss it out? Personally, it doesn't bother me. I always get my preferred amount of sleep when the clocks change even when losing an hour and it rarely inconveniences me. But that doesn't go for others. So I ask your opinion!

Toss it for all I care. I would not miss it at all if they got rid of it for the foreseeable future and it's about as useful as a cigarette. It's just random and arbitrary and causes so much unnecessary confusion.

How am I so creative? I think taking walks might have something to do with it.
Every single level of every single ROM hack I've ever made is easier than Ultra Necrozma.
I really can't stand daylight savings, but having to wake up at 7 AM to darkness is never satisfying either. It's a bit conflicting, but just for conveniences sake, I'd choose to just scrap the whole idea of daylight savings. I feel like I could adjust to an annoying sunrise/sunset pattern just fine.

I absolutely loathe it. So much to change for no good reason. Your sleep scheduele also ends up being fucked for days before you finally get used to it. They seem to try to get rid of it here in Holland, but i'm not sure if that will go through in the end.

This post is mine.

Reminiscing the old times where LazyTown was relevant.
It causes much more trouble than it helps. Just this year, because the government of my country had to delay DST so it didn't happen on the same day as election day, a lot of cellphone providers and the like got the time wrong, either by switching too early, switching too late, or forgetting to switch to DST when they needed to. Multiple times within a month.

It's a neat idea in practice, adjusting the clock so the actual time matches the solar time more closely on certain times of the year*, but it doesn't work properly on paper. It should just be thrown away.

* because of the Earth's tilt: sunrise, sunset and the amount of daylight in a day all change based on your location on Earth and also based on what season it is

It actually doesn't affect me all that much nowadays because I just wake up whenever I feel like waking up. Because I'm a morning person, it works out okay. But if you aren't, and you need an alarm clock to wake up early because school or work, that can certainly cause problems. And that's another reason to ditch it.

I'm in a similar camp as Giftshaven: in my current life situation, DST is technically useful to me. Since I go to work a bit later than average people, summer time is the only time where I can get to see some daylight after work. All of that being said, I still don't like DST and think it's not useful enough to be worth it and should go away eventually. It really creates more problems than it solves.

Feel free to visit my website/blog - it now isn't actually shit anymore!
I don't have strong feelings toward DST either way, but I would probably be okay with keeping it. I can't remember any time that DST has ever messed up how I sleep, and adjusting a few clocks takes just a few minutes at most on just two days out of the year--not a big deal, in my opinion.

That's exactly the way I feel about it. It just doesn't inconvenience me or you the way it does others, it seems. I'd be fine with it leaving, and I'd be fine with it staying. I could dig it either way.

Isn't it a thing so commerce doesn't have an extra hour to have their lights on?

Thankfully, we don't have DST at all where I live. It only affects us cause the rest of the country has it, giving us wonky TV schedules.

I think that it should go the other way. Meaning in fall, you should move 1 hour ahead, this way it is lighter for longer during the day. In the long run, it would probably save millions in not having to turn your lights on so early

Pretty much this. Blame our government. Not to mention they also delayed it at first due to our yearly national exam, but they changed their minds.

I don't get why they had to make it so that the sun sets earlier in the Winter, a season of already shortened days and vice versa in the Summer. Seems like it should be the other way around, if anything.

I know, right. Damn government shortening our days and shiz.

I really don't care either way. And I don't care about changing time twice a year. I think people just often overreact to it. It's not that big a deal, you have 2 weird nights a year and the rest of the time it's pretty much the same, it's only the light that changes.

My phone/computer/other devices automatically change the time anyway so it's no hassle for me.

I don't outright hate it to the point where I'm waving pitchforks in the air against it like some people in this thread are, but I admit I never really understood the point in having it. Every Daylight Saving time I always look up the reason only to have forgotten it by the next Daylight Saving, but I do recall it being a pretty pointless reason.
