Which gets to my point, that most folks Do not want to time travel....sheesh

Thanks Denny!  You summed up my feelings.  I'm giving up worrying about things I can't control.  Life's too short.

It's one of those parts of life you can't change so look at it in a positive light move forward. Mind over matter.  I don't mind so it doesn't matter.  :)

Every spring there is a big bump at 2:00AM when the mainland suddenly moves a full time zone further east.  Every fall at 2:00AM there is a big bump when it moves back again.
So if I want to visit Hawaii, it's better to go in the fall because it's closer?   ;D

I like it because it reminds me to change my smoke detector batteries.

Meh.  Still seems a little dark at 6 am. 

That is a handy trick; adding options to others polls.  ::)
BTW, All of your options are fraught with bias language and tone.

That depends on your perspective...

Pretty amazing.  Imagine the resistance to a proclamation, "Starting this Sunday, everyone WILL begin work one hour early."  There would be riots in the streets.  But, tell everyone to set their clocks ahead one hour - No big ting bruddah...

Then you get to leave an hour early too.  Doesn't matter to me, I'm always in the dark anyway. ;)

I like falling back in time. Although there is never enough time to get work done.

I don't see any way to vote, there are no buttons to select but I think the whole concept is idiotic.  Twice a year half of my employees either show up an hour late or an hour early, somebody has to work a 13 hour s*** while somebody else goes home after 11 hours.  It makes my payroll complicated, doesn't actually change the length of the day and really makes no sense.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

I could take it or leave it. I'm nuetral to the the time change. If there's some real benefit to it, I'm certainly not reaping the rewards from it. But it helps those in need of more early daylight...so be it.

Pick one and stick with it.  I don't care if it's ST or DT, just stop the nonsensical changing!

Daylight Savings?  We don't have those here.  What's all the fuss over a bank anyways?
