I Ain't Doing It!

    Daylight Savings Time has been officially extended effective this year: instead of mid-April, we now have to set our clocks forward in mid-March, and instead of late October, we now have to set our clocks back in late November. Well I'm not going to do it! I'm not all that fond of Daylight Savings Time: it being daylight outside till 10:00 at night doesn't feel natural, and were not supposed to re-set our clocks until mid-April and late October.

    So while you all are busy ruining tradition, I still won't spring forward until mid-April, and I will have already fall back in late October while you all are still watching the sun set at no 9:30 at night!

    Next thing you know, Christmas will be moved to August 13th, and Easter weekend will be in the dead of January!

    Hear hear! I agree. It's all just a control mechanism for the Orwellian machine of the corporate mass media and government to keep us all enslaved...jump? How high sir? Uh uh. I will stand with you in your resistance!


    ack...but then I will be all confuzzled by me being with the wrong time, will be late for work. And awwww *once again becomes a zombie for the machine*

    What sucks the most about this is that, I heard somewhere, my country will be doing it too just because YOUR country is, so it doesn't mess up trade or something.

    And we're farther north than you so the amount of daylight thing is already screwy!

    I was told that OUR country ASKED your country if they wanted to go along with it because apparently we weren't going to do it if others didn't want to as well.

    Gosh, it sounds like our country is being run by a bunch of pre-teen girls. (no offense to any of those who may be out there)

    Whatever it was, if you ask us to do stuff most of the time we do because, and I've said this before, in certain aspects we are like your tag-along little brother. :rolleyes:

    Oh come on, surely Canada can make it's own decisions, I mean they must otherwise they'd be in the middle of a hundred wars just like we are!

    I hate daylight savings time. :cry:

    Why, why, why?

    I couldn't agree more, Snowth. I think DLS should be eliminated all together. It's so stupid.

    Now you're talking!!! But we'd have to take it up with Benjamin Franklin, the whole "Daylight Savings Time" concept was his idea!
  13. furryredmonster

    furryredmonster Well-Known Member

    He did? What's the point of DLS, anyway? It just makes us all mad.

    EDIT: Your avatar is cute, Snowthy.

    If I remember correctly, the concept to set our clocks forward in spring and summer months was because the daylight lasts longer and it gets warmer, thus not needing the use of excess candles for light and heat, or something like that.
    Have you noticed each day I've been having a different colored Yoshi for the past five days?

    And we still use candles today? I say we abolish DLS!! (Everytime I type that I type "DSL" by accident...)

    No, I haven't. The pink one is cute, though. ^_^

    Well, apparently there's some debate about this, but some groups say the idea of saving daylight still applies today, with electronic light sources.

    Well I'm talking about back during the days when there wasn't any electricity, nor lightbulbs.

    I did! It's really cute. Yoshi's my fave. Especially in Super Smash Bros., just because he's so annoying to other players. :D

    I thought I heard that DLS was invented by Ben Franklin at the same time as home electric use so that people would have to use it more.
