Time change

It just seems to mess with your inner clock

No, your inner clock stays the same.....the outer world's clock goes through a resync twice a year.....not a problem for a retired old guy who ignores it.

Then, I didn't use an alarm clock for the last 20 years or so when I was working. I just got out of bed when my body told me it was time, and wandered into work when I got there. I was almost always there before the habitual late arriver's were, so I wasn't noticed. I left work 5 minutes after the boss's Mustang cleared the parking lot.
 
I've always thought they have it backward. We don't need it to be light until 10 at night but we could sure use it in the winter when it's dark a little after 4pm.
Now the talk is to keep it at daylight savings year round. We had an informal referendum where 100's of 1000's of people voted to keep DST because they read the question wrong. Every person I talked with thought they were voting to keep standard time, including myself.

Yah that’s what I meant George just worded it wrong!

I haven’t had to punch a clock for 25 yrs or so (self employed) so it doesn’t really affect me as much as other people. Just out of sync (like you say) with the time for a couple weeks.

Farmers?.....my grandparents who I/we lived with through childhood was strictly sunrise/sunset.... time change certainly didn’t affect their circadian rhythm.
And as a tradesman myself I do much better in a natural rhythm than back when I had to be there at a certain time every day.
 
Using "Daylight Saving" appears to me as idiotic as crushing your feet in a vice to make them fit a pair of shoes.

If anything, **change activities timetable** , only on those needed of course (many couldn´t care less) instead of messing with *everything*, including biological clock and , let´s not forget it, Astronomical clock too.

Why create such an unnatural mess when whe can (MUCH simpler) say: "in winter, we work from 10 AM to 6PM instead of 9AM to 5PM" or whatever is necessary.

Result is exact same ... for those who need it, leaves all others untouched.
