Just a reminder, here in the U.S., if your on daylight savings time, at 02:00 today, move ahead 1 hour.
and lose a little sleep.

Thanks for the heads up.

And this is good news.

This means I get off work Monday an hour earlier than usual.

And I'm thankful my alarm clock sets daylight savings automatically.

Double win.

Wow, that explains the whole 1 hour "missing time" incident I just had when I looked at my computer clock.

On this subject. At 2:00 AM we turn our clocks ahead to 3:00 am. So what happens to the whole 2:00 hour? Does it just Unexist? Erased from existence?

And what if a baby was born at precisely the second of the time change. Would the hospital record 2:00 am or 3:00 am for the record. Hmm. And if the hospital did record 2:00 am it would be born in limbo, and the birth was recorded at 3:00 it would be a lie.

Oh my . I'm sure there is a simple answer for it all. Its just late. That's all.

Does this happen only in America? If so is it because they know people go out later when there is more sun light to buy stuff. Yet during winter we don't?? Sorry guys never really paid so much attention to this.

It's "Winter Forward" now, not "Spring Forward".
The time change used to be a month from now.
In Spring.
It's still Winter until the 20th.

They changed it in 2005.
7 years ago.
It used to begin on the first Sunday in April.
So... doesn't anyone suspect it was changed for some hidden, nefarious reason?
I do.
But I can't put my finger on it.
But that Sun rising 2 days early in Greenland thing comes to mind.

Plus degrees in December (Polar night ends TWO DAYS early? )

How many threads do you think we'll see tomorrow from the people that didn't set their clocks ahead?I'm guessing five.They'll all be titled "I lost an hour last night,I was abducted! "
edit on 11-3-2012 by nightstalker78 because: (no reason given)

*groan* I hate the fall back/spring forward garbage. There's no need to futz with timekeeping like this, it doesn't really accomplish anything anyway.

On the bright side, I don't have to look at that big glowing thing in the sky until 7:43 this morning. On the downside, I have to look at it an hour later in the evening.

Abducted?

No, there'll be timeshift threads and people saying the sun is in the wrong place and that China has moved and that the Nazis were actually a peace loving group that enjoyed picking dandelions and sharing the company with fluffy elephants.

But it doesn't explain how half of my coworkers and I missed a entire day this week. For some some reason, when we all got our pay stubs on Thursday, a lot of us thought it was Wednesday.

Can I really be that busy that I miss a entire day?

Good thing it happened when it did otherwise I would have showed up at work yesterday wondering where everybody is at.

You absolutely can be. Missing days happens to me pretty often, a few times a month at least. The busier I am, the more out of sync my internal calendar is with the Gregorian. I can be off by a few days in either direction--I've thought it was several days ahead or several days prior to the actual date. Heck, last week, I argued with my husband over whether or not it really was Saturday, or Thursday.(it was in fact Saturday)

They do it in some other countries too, but they aren't very much in sync.
Can they not just agree on a date? You'd think it should all be at the same date, but it's not.

I'd rather we just keep Daylight Savings all year long. It's nice having that extra hour of light at the end of the day.

I'm half asleep in the morning anyway, so I won't miss it there. But it totally blows getting dark at 5pm.
