I've never seen the big deal about it.

Doesn't bother me in the least. I've got other things to get all hot and bothered about.

Bunch of not too bright farmers. The cows don't care if the clocks just changed. It's the farmers who look at the clock. Jeez! Just keep milking the cows on their schedule. So what if it's 6am instead of 5am for the farmers?

Perhaps you're kidding? Either that, or you understand very little about the dairy industry. Everyone is affected, from the milking cow (bless her!) to the truck driver taking the finished product to the wholesaler. It's a very intricate, complicated and interesting process. And you can't just demand that "business" change time & scheduling because the cow's udder isn't yet full of milk.

Lets start a petition.
I don't know why everyone falls back in the fall, if anything, DST should be applied during the fall and winter months, so everyone can have an extra hour of daylight, during the time of the year when it's needed, especially in the northern portions of Alaska, where they only get about 4 hours of daylight in the winter months. I was told that most homes have something on the windows to block out sunlight and help residents fall asleep.

I live in Arizona, where most of the state stays on Mountain Standard Time. Only one Native American reservation in the northeast part of the state changes to Mountain Daylight Savings Time.

I can't imagine living in the extreme northern or southern latitudes, or close to the poles, that would be very tough to get used to 23 hours of daylight in the summer, and 23 hours of night in the winter months.

I had one of the clocks forwarded two hours. It's a good thing I didn't have an appointment today!
