    Kids have Christmas, Emos have Halloween, Mothers have Thanksgiving. But what do us horologists' have but one crucial second...? That one moment when all of our time pieces will be one whole hour off??! Will you be prepared? I plan on having all my timepieces laid out, where I will wait vigilantly for 2:00 AM! I only plan on taking 5 minutes to change back every clock in the house! The microwave, stove, and VCR included.

    LOL. Yeah, really. Might want to back off on the meds a little. Seriously though, the twice-yearly time change is the downside of being a collector, at least those with large collections.

    Sorry, got a little ahead of myself. In all honesty I really don't see the point in DST. Ben Franklin invented it a 100 years ago to save oil.

    I say leave clocks alone and let nature take its normal course. In addition it will make more meaningful to own a worldtimer timepiece!

    Come join the dark side, just cancel the time changes... that's the way it was done here, by then late president... all for the sake of legendary stability, the time shifts were just rocking the boat :D

    I actually like DST since I do lots of things outdoors. I really hate it when it changes back and it gets dark soooo early.

    What decade are you in?? Where did I put all of those old Beta Tapes...

    Oh yeah, right next to my 4 and 8 Track tapes and players.

    You think I'm condescending...?? Do you even know what that means... ??

    And since the sun rises in the east, it gets darker here in Pennsylvania much earlier than when I was in California.
