Most of you heard of daylight savings time. Right? Anyway do you like it? Think its a waste? Part of the reason I dont like it is because when I wake up its dark and makes it harder. XP

Yea.. well the east side of Taipei is pretty, it's all new and shiny and stuff, but the west side is a little older and more run down.

Kaohsiung is okay. It's not as new as taipei but its ok

Day Light Savings Time is just a pain to deal with. Someone should just put their foot down and say no more fudging around with the stupid time.

I don't really understand, what Daylight Saving Time is. See, I live in India and here there is nothing such as Daylight Saving Time. Can someone explain?

In Spring, you turn the clock up an hour. So whatever was 7:45 becomes 8:45.

In Fall, you turn the clock back an hour. So whatever was 7:45 becomes 6:45.

It's quite stupid really, be thankful you don't need to deal with it.

I used to looove it when I was in the 3rd grade because I could stay out later because it stayed brighter longer. Now I don't really like it because I hate the extra light when I want to go to sleep early. D:

Wasn't it originally started by farmers or something to have more daylight during the Harvest?:eh:

I don't get the point of it either.
In the fall we switch and suddenly it's bright and sunny in the mornings, but gets dark earlier. In the spring we go back to dark mornings and the sun stays out longer. What's the point of that?

Why? The Spring Equinox is when spring is coming.

It messes me up every year. I'm losing an hour of sleep. ;_;

But in the fall, you get an extra hour of sleep.

I asked my American friend, and she explained it all to me. My basic knowledge of that is to turn the clock one hour earlier, lol.

I think it's a waste...I mean really what is the point of it? Isn't it for the farmers or something like that? Still people should stop messing around with the time. It's just making things evem more difficult than they already are...

DLST was made by the government to give farmers more time to make corn, ect. They needed to make more money by selling the new crops. Pretty simple...

I hate it though. I mean, why would you want to wake up dark, and fall asleep light???

It's one of the irksome things that I have to live with. I'm hoping that at some point, we get in a president for the US that gets rid of the whole mess. The sun is still going to be up longer because of the tilt of the Earth. We don't need to lose an hour's worth of sleep for it. :<

So, I have to suffer through it. And it annoys me to be in work and look out the windows to see the sun still shining when the day before it was dark...and I didn't feel as depressed. Oy.

And yes, it was made for the farmers back a-days, to give them more time for the harvest. They didn't have such things as lights back then, so the sun was their only source of light. The extra hour was given for them so that they could harvest their crops, make money, and feed the starving people of America. We really don't need it now.
