Nome Alaska and Kashgar China - both place see 9am/9pm set times in both equinoxes

I'm so glad that where I live we have no Daylight Savings Time.

I live in a light pink area, it's ok I suppose. The sun has been rising close to 4:30 or so in the morning lately (unfortunately I'm still up at this time) and I don't like that all. Being a night owl I guess I would prefer the red zone, I'd argue that I might prefer it even more red than where I am.

I find it strange that nearly all of Russia is red when most other countries have a clear red to white to green gradient that actually makes sense. Wtf Russia?

It would be interesting to see that map with political boundaries to see how little sense our time zones actually make.

I prefer late sunrises, even though I am at work before 6:45 every day.

Late sunsets.

I'd like to be on daylight savings time all year.

Late sunsets generally, though I live in the north-east, so the day is 5;15am-9;10pm in the summer. I like usually when the sun sets from 7-10pm, 9pm-10pm in summer. And 4-6pm in winter.
I wake up at 9am, so if sunrise is before 9 that's great.
