No - you lose more if you go far enough west, springing forward 23 hours.

The US Navy once took away my daughter's birthday.

On Dec 4, 1982, we left Seattle on a Northwest flight that was running late, leaving about 9 pm. We arrived in Tokyo at 1:15 AM on Dec 6.

After a 3 hour ride to Yokosuka, we got up at about 9 local time to look around the base. My daughter, whose birthday was Dec 5, was upset that she did not get a birthday on her birthday.

Of course, now she say's she is a year younger than her DL says saying "The US Navy took away my birthday in 1982, so I'm a year younger than you think."


In 1966 I had two birthdays! Left Saigon on my birthday, landed in Oakland on my birthday.


So how old do you say you are???

-S


The fact that I had two 25th birthdays does not change my age. It is still current year minus birth year, which equals more years than I thought I would survive!
I set my clocks (except for those in vehicles) last night about 8 PM. I did not lose any sleep, nor will I lose any sleep any night in the future due to DST.

I want a time system that starts with sunrise. Work can start 2 hours after sunrise. Stores might open 3 or 4 hours after sunrise or whatever they need.

During my working life, I frequently flew from NY to California and points in between, as well as to England and France. A little one hour time change doesn't bother me in the least... 🙂

Yeah, the Navy knows how to do it right. Add an hour to the work day in one direction, lose an hour of sleep in the other direction.

Lol. Or people who actually care or obsess about it as well probably! Haha

For those that think it’s of no use, you don’t use “daylight” as a critical part of your day or career.
Considering more people used to rely on “daylight” for lighting, dst used to be more “necessary.” Now, not as much. But considering it would be an actual inconvenience to those that do and only a perceived inconvenience to those who don’t, why are the people who are against it complaining the most?
That question can’t be answered without being edited or deleted here! Haha

What's the big deal on changing clocks?

For an RVer.

I've changed 2 times in one day several times in long tows.

One day three times. Left El Paso on US-180 headed east, changed from Mtn to Central TZ at Culberson County line near Guadalupe Peak, changed from Central TZ to Mtn TZ at NM border south of Carlsbad, changed from Mountain to Central TZ again at TX border just past Hobbs.

Headed west is better because you gain an hour at each crossing.

I won't even mention the potential fun in Arizona where much of the state does not do DST, and the Navaho Nation does DST.


The worst is when you're headed east and you pass through a time zone boundary - on the day in the Spring when you're also setting your clock ahead. Then you "lose" two hours in one day. Your body objects! I did that once.

"I'll never have to worry about that again. Moved out of Cali 6 months ago to AZ. And didn't Cali vote it in to do away with the time change like a few years ago? What happen to that? Must be a Newsome thing."

Same thing happened in Florida. The state can pass it but it takes the Congress of the United States to approve it. Not a Newsom thing.

I gave up telling that to people I know. They just answer that their only clock is their phone and it changes automatically.

I recently tried to warn some friends about a possible power outage and I told them to make sure that their flashlights all had fresh batteries. There response was that the only flashlights they own (in a house with 5 people) was on their cell phones and they had extra power packs for those.

They also don't listen to tornado warnings, have smoke detectors/carbon monoxide detectors, or keep their vehicles gassed up.

I give up .
