Dark

I know it happens every year about this time but it still sucks that it's dark at 5:00.

Agreed, it sucks getting home from work in the dark!

At least I have sunlight for my inbound commute for another couple of weeks...

I dunno I find this better than waking up and leaving for work and it is still dark at 7 am! Those last few weeks of October really screwed with me waking to darkness.

Well, it's screws my morning up, since I was getting used to being dark (6am) when I leave for work :)

I say we adopt DST permanently.

Heard there was an interesting study done that tracked crimes during the revised DST from the early 2000 (when Bush2 extended DST). More crimes take place in the evening darkness, and the weeks that DST were extended too saw drops in crimes committed in the evening.

For those screaming "what about the children waiting for a bus in the morning," the study saw zero increases in child abduction cases.

Seems criminals are night owls.

Nothing good happens after midnight, except maybe video game releases.

+1 for doing away with DST changes.

The protect the children thing is more about getting hit by a car not abductions.
the only effect I've seen the time change have on Law Enforcement is if you get stuck working the "fall back an hour" night! I've let out a few screams when 2AM becomes 1 AM and your 12 hour shift becomes 13.......

I agree with getting rid of DST, the excuse that it's for the children is lame, most are either picked up by a bus really close to their home, or are driven by parents.

I say we keep the current DST instead of Standard Time, and go to Mega-DST in the summer so it's light out til 10.

Ugg I hate going to bed when it's still light out.
