Friday 183 An hour longer weekend.

Daylight saving time ends so we'll have an additional hour tomorrow night over here. That was always fun in my outgoing days as we took maximum advantage of that
Those idiots in Brussels now want to end it and even more stupid is the option to choose for summer time instead of the normal winter time.
With CO2 emissions as a hot item you would think not changing anything would be best. Also for safety reasons as many kids go to school on their bikes in the morning and obviously it's a lot safer in daylight.

Tomorrow an way too early football match for the boys. At 8:45 at the field in Maastricht results in leaving half an hour earlier compare to a working day.
Visiting friends in the afternoon and Sunday watching F1 in "Maxico".

So what are you all up to?

I think it's an amazing idea to shit can daylight saving time, although Brexit means the EU edict might not affect us. There's nothing more grim than it getting dark before you've even left work. Who gives a fuck about having an extra hour of daylight at 7 am? You're either asleep or crawling to work. Give us more light in the evenings, you bastards.

You’d rather it be sunny at 8 or 9 pm?
Whatever, man.

Hey, give us our hour back!

DST has not begun here yet, but random phones and tablets have already leapt one hour forward as if it had, and home appliances are now a mess. Even my car now gives different times depending on whether I'm looking at the dashboard or the built-in tablet

The state of Queensland doesn't have daylight savings. I recall that we trialled it in the late 80s and early 90s, and I think there was even a referendum about it, which seems surprisingly hardcore for an hour of daylight. It got scrapped, in any case.

That's how it works in the UK too, the clocks go forward in March, I think? They're turning the clocks back at this time of year though, so they'll lose an hour of light in the evening.

Maybe Jack meant he would prefer daylight savings time year-round. Can't say I blame him, either. Having lived in the north of England myself, it's fucking depressing to see it get dark at around 4pm.

What time does it get dark in Tassie in the winter?

So still pretty early then. We don't have much variation here. In the winter it's dark around 5:30pm and in summer around 7pm or so. I'm honestly glad we don't have daylight saving here, in the summer I want it to get dark as early as possible so it starts to cool down

Of course. Why is that remotely strange? At 8pm I'm not at work. I'd rather have daylight then so I can continue to do things outdoors. Who does anything interesting at 7 am? You're either working or commuting.

It's wouldn't be sunny at that time in winter here anyway. It's currently getting dark at about 6pm. After this weekend that will become 5pm. In the depths of December it's pitch black at 4pm. This is depressing during the week and even worse at the weekend. That extra hour of daylight is shunted to early morning when I'm either asleep or staggering home from a party, and the rest of my day is curtailed.

Who benefits from this shift? The vanishingly small percentage of children who cycle to school unaccompanied, according to Trance-MB, in another example of TA's ludicrous bike safety zealotry. Possibly the breed of sad bastard who gets up at 5 am and does everything before work, and who's asleep at 9 pm anyway.

And yes, I was getting confused about which is which. In the UK we just call it British Summer Time and Greenwich Mean Time. Calling summer hours "Daylight Saving" is an open admission that we're willfully pissing an hour away in winter. Seriously. Get it binned off. I couldn't feel more strongly about this.
