About time (heh). The suggested energy savings have been repeatedly proven to be non-existent.

I fucking hate daylight savings in winter with a passion. It makes me dread winter even more than usual.

If anything it should be flipped around, so we can have an extra hour of daylight in the evening instead.

"The message is very clear: 84 percent of them do not want the clocks to change anymore," the Slovenian commissioner said in a prepared statement as she spoke to journalists.

I wonder what the response rate would be in the States. I, for one, think the whole idea is idiotic.

Idea of daylight savings out abolishing it?

[–] Professor_de_la_Paz 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

The idea of Daylight Savings Time. I'm all in favor of abolishing it.

Good riddance. But I bet EU fucks this up too, Junker wants permanent summer time after all. 12 o'clock is when the sun should be highest. Not at 13 like it would be if summer time becomes permanent.

I'm just waiting for when someone unironically proposes fixing this by changing the number of minutes in certain hours of the day. If the late morning hours had 75 minutes each and the early afternoon hours were 45 minutes, then the sun could peak at local noon, and office workers could still have 4 hours of daylight remaining when they leave work at 5pm. Everybody would be happy.

Good. Changing your clocks is so fucking retarded anyways, there is no benefit whatsoever.

Oh thank God. Even the idiotic EU is getting something right.

That and Florida man. I sitll don't know how they pulled it off.

Seasonal clock change? did they decide "daylight savings" was racist against the equator or some stupid shit like that?

[–] Honey_Pot 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

Think of the Corporate Farms! They need the daylight to reap and sow and count subsidy money.

Something I actually agree with. Does not change that fact that the EU is a beurocratic parasite on the region
