Re: Time changed... When will it end.

Not necessarily hate, just...annoyance, really.

Time is, or at least should not be, subject to the whims of people who just decide it's an hour earlier or later. It should be as near to absolute as possible. Just decide on a standard and STICK WITH IT.

I agree with the concept of time zones, because different parts of the globe are under different levels of sunlight at any given time. But the concept of DST is a useless affectation. Let people just shut the fuck up and *accept* however dark or light it is at any given time.

Seriously? Was this written without recognizing the irony of your own position on the matter of time?

Re: Time changed... When will it end.

You're complaining about a time change, then telling people to not complain about time changes. Hard to not see the irony in that position.

Re: Time changed... When will it end.

I am sorry, I can see how that seems inconsistent. Let me rephrase: There should be a single, unified time standard that does not involve any changes whatsoever. So I should, in effect, have told people not to complain about a LACK of time changes.

If that still seems awkward, well, that's as clear as I can get right now.

Re: Time changed... When will it end.

Everyone is free to live by universal time if they so wish. It's just that hardly anyone does.

Let's all just split the difference and adjust the time by 30 minutes. That will be the new universal time.

"Not-Morrisette"?
He's referring to singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette's song "Ironic," which became the subject of debate over her misuse of that term.
