This is just a reminder to turn back your clocks this Sunday at 2 am, for those of you in America, as it is Daylight Savings Time once again.

Enjoy that extra hour of sleep!

How could I forget? I've been looking forward to this day for weeks, now I can get back on a decent sleep schedule.

Why don't we just keep DST for the whole year?

That would be nice. Didn't Bush cite some economic reason?

Bush? I don't think he was the one who voted for DST changes. But yes, DST saves energy.

Yeah, I've been saying that for a while. I see little reason not to, I mean our time out of DST is getting smaller, and at this point, I think we're in DST for at least 3/5 of the year.

Maybe Congress is just legislating a more gradual change. I think it'd be more efficient to just do it once.

Me too, I'm sure nobody would mind not having to worry about it.

I guess our legislators need that extra hour of sleep in the fall, eh?

I like the change, but for the sake of efficiency, it would probably be better to have DST throughout the whole year.

I would rather stay on this time. I feel more awake during class.

The downside is that it gets dark earlier.
