Don't blame time. We're just not capable of perceiving/traveling it in all its directions.

Seriously though wtf is the point of changing the clocks so we all have to stare into the sun on our commute into work. Clearly this is a plot by Luxottica to sell more Ray-Bans EDKH

That's the fatal flaw in my plan to live in Denver. My job is in just about the easternmost part of town that I'd prefer to live in. In Dallas I could always find someplace workable that was south or east of my job, and south works here, but north puts me too close to or having to commute past the refinery which no way man benzine is not my friend and I don't trust those fuckers not to have that in the stinking miasma that surrounds that place. In Dallas north would always just put me further out in the suburbs or even into the legit exurbs and that just wasn't necessary.

It's a plot by auto body shops to drum up more business. Or maybe a plot to expose Vampires, because apparently nobody plans ahead with their sun visor, so they come around the corner, or over the rise, and recoil in horror at the sudden appearance of the sun.

I believe voters in California, Oregon, Washington and BC have all clearly voted in favor of killing the time change & going to year-round DST. The problem seems to be Congress. (BC won't do it until the three pacific states do.)

Dear software people:

WHY THE FUCK DO YOU HAVE AN ARIZONA-SPECIFIC TIME SETTING THAT STILL AUTOMATICALLY CORRECTS FOR DST?

Sorry nicole, but I like that it's still light out at 9PM in high summer.

DST is the one true timezone! All others are false!

Hey, I'm an evening lover and I'm on your side.

I like _getting to the evening_. Which means I want the sun to go down as soon as possible. Leave the light in the morning when I'm asleep like a reasonable vampire.
