I got an extra hour of sleep marking the end of daylight savings time. That was nice but does D. S. T. actually save energy these days? Back when there were more farmers, maybe...... but today?

Does Canada do DST? How about Europe?

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

It fucks with my sleep and means I do more commuting in the dark. Censored

It served it's purpose when put into place but they need to do away with it. They are toying with us by making the weeks from start to stop fewer. I had hoped it would get shorter every year till -poof- all gone.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Daylight Saving Time has gotten longer in duration. It should be discontinued.

Yeah we just came off DST and got back onto standard. For the OP no it does nothing.

RE: Does daylight savings time do anything, anything at all?
I keep suggesting that we move the clocks 30 minutes the next time it comes around and then forget it forever. Nobody listens. Consider

Either that or we get creative and move the clocks a few minutes every week for six months and then reverse the process. Nobody will ever miss 3 minutes at a time...

Or we could go back to the early practice of using long hours during daytime and short hours at night in the summer so that day and night are always each 12 hours and always align with sunrise and sunset. That'd really make things "interesting". Shocking

Oops, either way it needs to stop.

It's a relic of an agricultural society.
It's bad for people's circadian rhythms.
It need to go.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Saving daylight is a good thing.

You never know when we'll run out of it.

Conservation of energy and all that.

Yes
