You know I was thinking our temps and weather are kinda off.. Perhaps 1 month or so...

We have snow and cold temps in Pittsburgh for the last month, usually that is our thaw period. Then the killer storms of April. But I have been noticing a lot of weirdness in temps comparativeness to months tho.

That is too funny!!

What happens when those outdoor bank clocks stop on 12:00 noon?

If the clock is not fixed for a couple of days, just think of the warming this would cause to the effected area being bathed in sunlight for over 48hrs

This is a joke, right? You guys aren't really expecting anyone to take this as serious are you?

I'm thinking this was a letter to the editor deal. Amazing how willing some people are to make their ignorance public, isn't it?

At least here, most of us are anonymous.

That is the biggest laugh I've had for weeks.



I heard someone in England say: "I think these wind generators are a terrible idea. I mean, do't we have enough wind already?"

That is all I have to say. Really, this is just too funny. This has to be a joke as no one can be that stupid! The one about the Wind "Generators" is pretty funny too.

maybe I have problems figuring out the math end of this stuff, but isn't there the same amount of daylight? It just depends on how it's measured? You can't take away or add extra daylight.

That's why this is so funny!

This reminds me of the story about the guy who wanted the town to move the deer crossing sign that was near his house.

His argument: There was too much traffic in that area and the deer were being endangered. Also, they would stop and eat his apples while waiting to cross the road.

How about this, a friend had a newspaper cutting on his fridge of this one: A man was arrested while throwing fist sized rocks at his wife, who was in the middle of a river, struggling for her life, at the time. In his defence he said that he had accidently knocked her in, and was merely trying to drive her toward the bank.

Gosh. I hope our plants'n things don't over-photosynthesize themselves. Maybe it's a government plot to overthrow the worlds ecosystem. (I bet it's George Bush's idea.)

Oh my poor head!
When I saw this thread, I was worried that one of our members had lost it.
Was this written by Cheryl Crow by any chance?

That's made my Friday!

Actually, though, thinking about it, it has turned awfully warm in the UK since we went on to Summer Time ........ And whenever we put the clocks back in autumn it almost always turns colder soon after!

I think it's bunk because you don't actually "gain" an hour during daylight's saving time. The sun still rises and sets within a twelve hour period. It's just that because we set OUR clocks back an hour that it SEEMS we are getting more daylight.

So, a DST change results in more sunlight in the day? Sounds like Wile E. Coyote physics to me, unless none of us here actually knows what the guy means.

Actually, on second thoughts, this is total rubbish.

Well, it's not enough to just say something is bunk and then not explain why it is. There is enough of that on this board as it is.

OMG! I laughed out loud when I saw this one! It's amazing how ignorant some people can be to the point of embarrassment. Wow.....
