Just watch. The IT guys will turn this into another Y2K.

Couple of questions: If we stay on Daylight Savings time all year, what happens to the hour we lost? Do we all just lose an hour of our lives?

Concerning the 9/10ths and gas tax, when will EVs start paying for the roads they drive on? This one is a real issue and the politicians aren't so dumb that they don't know this. They want us to buy the cars first and then will figure out how to tax us.


In Indiana at least, EV's pay through the nose in license plate fees every year. That's because they don't pay fuel taxes.

how is this tag fee calculated ? average fuel consumption of X brand,Y model, times Z average miles driven per year by the average citizen ?
or just an arbitrary number picked out of the sky by a governmental genius ?

I don't know about mainframes, but for windows all they have to do is delete the applet that tells it to change the time on whatever date it is. Everytime they've changed the DST implementation date, MS and all the linux distros incorporate the change into their regular updates. Our Durango and 300 get their time from the GPS satellites, I think? No idea what's involved with that.

Define pay thru the nose. According to this site, it's $150/year not quite thru the nose and doubtful it covers it's share of road usage.

When I lived in Indiana there was a excise tax each year on vehicles, one reason I never went back.

Exactly , here in the northeast it will mean in January the sunrise won't happen till after 8AM before it starts getting earlier .

I'm all for stopping the nonsense of changing the clocks back and forth but they should maybe make it a half hour from what the real GMT is and call it good ??



No one thinks out that far. They only think of the immediate positives and not the potential negatives. Sun rising at 8AM in the winter will be super depressing for me.

Not really…we’re all going to live an hour longer.

I grew up in a small town in Vermont, in a north/south valley.

In winter time, the sun was setting for us around 3:00 pm, man those days dragged by. An extra hour of daylight in the afternoon would have been nice, though the days would have still been short.


It takes gasoline to interest me.

Id love it to be lighter longer in the evening, more time to do stuff outside. I don't care if it's dark a bit longer in the morning.

Elderly people with Dementia do not adapt well to the time change twice a year.

I have seen this myself, and Hospice workers agree it causes widespread problems.

This is on top of serious problems at nursing homes on the 11 PM to 7 AM shift where frequent staffing absentee problems result in the lights being left on and widespread noise from a few patients leading to most patients never getting “deep sleep.”

Lack of sleep is one reason 50% of nursing home residents die within six months, and 80% die within a year.

doesn't matter to me either way. i don't have any problem with the time changes.
i remember when J Carter extended DST during the gas crunch in the 70's.
i didn't care for waiting for the morning school buss in the dark .it made things colder than they should have been. it sucked sitting in sub 0 temps with no sun.


perception is 90% of reality
