Why on earth Do we still need daylight saving time?...what a pain !!!!!...
There's controversy about that reason, others say it was to save electricity. But I guess farmers wouldn't have to get up with the chickens (unless to feed them ) and could work later into the evening.Wouldn't farmers be the only people who shouldn't care what the time was officially? It's not like DST moves the Sun back or anything, and they can work when it's light if they so choose without having to deal with 9-5 restrictions or such.
Yup, but you'd be coming home while it's still light instead of dark. It's all relative.I guess if they didn't move it back, the in-creeping long nights of winter would mean we're going to school or work while it's still dark (or even darker than it is anyway)
Yeah, sadly the siesta is going here, at least in the cities. Now one has to get sloshed within half an hour and then spend what's left of the afternoon doing foolish things in the office. Not sure of the economical damage of that one, statistics being as yet sparse.I would prefer the current setting year round.
I like Mexico's (and Spains as mentioned above) long lunches as we could eat and drink, sober up, then return to work - this worked well even in the USA (white collar rules under these guide lines) The only drawback is liver damage.
