  • You've deal with this for your entire life. Get over yourselves. It's not a thing. It's just an excuse to whine a bit. Which can be nice, which is why when we get sick, we sometimes play it up a bit if we have a partner who is compassionate and caring for a little extra attention, but it would be nice if folks stopped pretending that this is some new thing. Get over yourselves.

  • In all fairness, though, this is just another reflection of the amazing diversity of our species. I mean, some people set out to conquer Mount Everest. Others found great companies and become titans of innovation and change. Still others dedicate themselves to science and unearthing the discoveries that will carry mankind into the future. And others out there need to figure out how to fit in an extra nap because falling back made them sleepy. Humanity is a great, woven tapestry, after all, and who's to say the dangly threads in back aren't every bit as important as all the others?
  • Ohforchristsake. How did the human race survive before prozac-addled bloggers?
  • There's a simple solution to the whole time change problem.

    Rather than make 2 massive leaps of an hour each, change the time 10 minutes per month.

    Adjust the current time so that sunset occurs at approximately 9:00 PM all year round.

    Around here, that would make dawn into noon, and 1:30 by mid December. Somehow, I think spending half of the working day in darkness would be worse.
  • time is a construct of man.  yawn.
  • The time change happens Sunday morning. On Thursday there was a guy at work complaining that he couldn't concentrate because he was still adjusting to the time change. Some people are farking morons and nothing will change it.
  • Coffee
    It's all you need.
  • If you get up at 4 every day it never bothers you.  Well me anyways.

    Sometimes you make me laugh, but say something like this to my face after a time change and I will put you through a wall.
  • It's worse than I thought.

    FTFA: While we've heard that we're supposed to get eight hours of sleep per night, many people have a difficult time figuring out how to do that.

    People are far dumber than I had ever imagined.

    Or just drop the whole stupid thing and use the same time year round.
  • This is about Big Clock. They know that changing them this often leads to breakage. And so consumers buy more clocks.

    /Follow the money.
  • I guess that would make leap years akin to an apocalypse.  Oh the horrors we must endure.

    Me too.  Up at 4am for work every day.  Doesn't matter.
  • Pfft...clocks.  I rely on the swaying of my pendulous nads to accurately keep time.

    I think I'll take my health tips from someone else.
  • I understand the problem with the spring forward part of this cycle, but fall back is really a problem?  Getting an extra hour of sleep on a Saturday night?

    Seems like a watch would be better, but whatever works. he looks good. Well-rested.
  • I'm only irritated by the fact I have to wear sunglasses when I take the kid to school in the mornings, I'd gotten used to it being dark in the mornings.

    The first morning after the change I forgot my sunglasses.  Oh hell that hurt, sometimes I hate the life giving nuclear ball of fusion hatred in the sky.   When I forget my sunglasses is one of them.

    Other than that, this is a problem us insomniacs don't have. My morning is usually 3-4 hours after whenever I last fell asleep.
