For example, right now, in the United States, I am in GMT -8. However, when calculating Europe time, I have to pretend that I am in GMT -7.

So, when dealing internationally, your inconvenienced for more than two days even if you aren't in Arizona.
EXACTLY! Daylight savings time has no REAL use now... I mean, if it decreased fucking traffic accidents and crime, why the FUCK isn't it year round? That would make more sense.... Farmers don't need it, because one of the main reasons they had DST was so people could have more daylight to work.

Traffic accidents go up for a few days after the Spring change.

Ooo... here's a thought, though. Businesses like to operate during the day to decrease the need for lights... why waste an hour of electricity to run a place every day?

The theory was that people would go to the polls more if it was light outside. This will change throughout the years though, so ignore this one really.

This was obvious civ, it's lighter out most of the time. Crimes happen when most often? At night, a study was done by the U.S. Law Enforcement Assisance Administration, and the results were that crime decreased by 10-13%. That's a good number of crimes.

This is also kind of a big deal...
Children Pedestrian Deaths are four times higher on Halloween than any other day. In 2007 a new law was passed to extend DST to the first sunday in November. This allows Trick-or-treaters with more light, and fewer traffic accidents happen usually. Though, you could argue that most kids wait until night to go trick-or-treating, but that's their faults really.

Yah, during ONE of the days.
No... DST affects all the days after it. There are greater chances for pedestrians and other people who are driving to not get into traffic accidents. This could be offset by lives lost in the afternoon though...

No, it affects the red of the days following civ. March 14- November 7, during those days, there are multiple energy sources conserved.

It lengthens summer days. For people who like summer, and that's a lot of people, it's better.

If you make it year-round, then it's not daylight's saving time anymore is it?
So therefore if it was yearound this whoel thread would be irrelevant.

If you made it year round, everyone would just adjust their internal clocks. No real difference would be made.

No, I'd argue that ten times as many kids are outside walking around at this time (and yah... I always went at night because that's what makes it cool). I mean, come on! Duh. Besides, it's up to the city to decide what time beggars night is, and they usually base that on the sun. Changing the clock doesn't make a difference.

Exactly. The only day it would help is the day that people get an hour more sleep. But even that, of course, is countered by the day that clocks are moved forward.

Chuck Norris doesn't worry about changing his clock twice a year for daylight savings time. The sun rises and sets when Chuck tells it to.
