    We do observe daylight savings time here in the Continental US with the exception of the state of Arizona. They're weird like that. :p

    That doesn't mean our phones don't go on daylight savings, unless they're setup correctly, which most aren't.

    Ugh, I hate Daylight Savings Time. Saskatchewan doesn't participate so the shows airs at different times from my perspective. Which means I have to remember if stuff's on an hour later or earlier.

    But thanks for reminding me of it, and to the people who got the date for NA right. :lol 

    Aw, but I won't be able to watch Canada's Worst Driver with my mom...

    Yeah, I used to live there too & always liked how we didn't fuck around with our clocks, but missing TV shows was definitely annoying haha.

    It's always nice to gain an hour's kip. Sucks if I've set the telly machine to record a show during the change though. Sometimes it gets it right and sometimes it spazzes out and I'll only get half a show.
    Also have to remember to apply this to when I'm speaking to people from various timezones when theirs hasn't changed yet or I arrive for the chat an hour early or late depending on if it went forwards or back.

    Damn DST. At least it was over the weekend this year...

    I don't particularly understand why we have it over here, I'm told something to do with Scottish children getting hit by traffic on the way to school in winter, but that sounds a little BS-y to me.



    Either way, I could happily live without it.

    Isn't it always over the weekend? On a Saturday night/early Sunday morning? So as not to disrupt the working week.
