    'The first states to adopt DST (German: Sommerzeit) nationally were those of the German Empire and its World War I ally Austria-Hungary commencing April 30, 1916, as a way to conserve coal during wartime.'

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daylig...g_time#History

    Reading the above should answer the question as to whether, in 2022, we need DST or not?

    Only a white man would believe that you could cut a foot off the top of a blanket and sew it to the bottom of a blanket and have a longer blanket.

    same for daylight savings time. I have dogs, so I only end up being woke up an hour earlier than before...........
    In a combat situation it is about 16 times better to do something useful and violent right away than to wait and figure out something even more useful and violent later.

    Maybe when I fully retire I’ll be OK with standard time. As it is now, I like the extra daylight I have after I get off of work. I’m an outdoor person and stay outside until dark almost every day…except Wednesday.

    What happens on Wednesday night? Is that a church service night?

    It's the least I can do for fellow travelers.

    Ironic. When asked to explain your bullshit YOU never do. I think it's because YOU don't even know what you're talking about troll.

    When you say, "trump is a truth-teller" and refuse to explain your bullshit - it's not an argument either.

    You are a major hypocrite, asshole.
