    Default Time to turn clocks back one hour





    Most Americans will be able to get an extra hour of sleep this weekend thanks to the annual shift back to standard time.

    Officially, the change occurs at 2 a.m. Sunday, but most people will set their clocks back before hitting the sack Saturday night.


    Remember, it's fall back an hour. Otherwise, you'll be an hour early on Sunday for church, golf, brunch or whatever.


    Residents of Hawaii, most of Arizona and some U.S. territories don't have to change since they do not observe daylight-saving time.

    Thanks for the reminder...I hate daylight saving time.
    Stupid, paranoid, and armed is a bad combination.

    Christianity: Sending telepathic messages to a Jewish ghost letting him know that you will accept him as your master and ask him to remove a magical curse that was passed down to you because an old woman that was made from the rib of her partner ate a piece of magical fruit from a magical tree because a talking snake told her to.

    Ask me again why I'm an atheist?

    yeah I have no fucking clue why we want to make it BRIGHTER in the morning (WHAT THE FUCK I HATE MORNINGS THEY ARE USELESS) and bring darkness upon ourselves an hour earlier. it's fucking stupid we aren't raising crops anymore, except for the stupid farmers who still think it's the 1700's. Newsflash farmers, food isn't that important anymore look at all the starving africans, they are still alive and they dont have food. In conclusion that's why we should not turn our clocks back. the end.

    How does that work in the US, does every timezone change at the same time? We moved the clocks back last weekend, I think it
    makes far more sense to just leave them on Summer time, in our case GMT+1

    On Sunday we change our clocks, on Tuesday we change our President... Don't forget!
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.
    - -- The Buddha

    AZ can't help it, if the majority of the States are so stupid to believe that DST is actually a benefit.
