Well Mike as an exDrunk I'll explain it to ya!

There is one magical night in the spring (NOPE, October) when you get an EXTRA HOUR !! before last call.

 

But the way I hear it they can cut you off any time for anything now-a-days!

Haven't dropped a hundred bucks every night four night a week out clubbin' since the 1980s.

Don't you have that backwards?  In the fall, when switching to standard time, 0200 becomes 0100, giving you that magic EXTRA HOUR!

Therefore, you are cut off.  AGAIN!

Dang, your right. Think I must have pickled more than just my liver, it's been a long time and it was usually cold when coming home or wherever after all that!

=== I’m not in position to doubt the effects of DST time change on others but for me that one hour time shift has zero effect. And for it to linger for days? It’s only an hour — .I personally don’t get it but everyone is effected in their own way —.

Wouldn't bother me either if I didn't have a job to get out of bed for 5 days a week.

Alas, no.  It seems like a good thing though.  Get it done by a pro with experience.  I did have the ceramic tint on the glass of one of my cars, and would recommend it over the film type which never holds up.

Congratulations, and it's a good thing you were not living in New Orleans, there are no last calls, only sunrises, and sunsets, to separate days.

Your right, they could change it from Friday to Saturday and it wouldn't make any difference to me, the hour thing is more aggravating.

These days that can be said in 1000 different situations at least.

Its difficult to explain to a 5 year old why they're having to go to bed and the sun is still out.   Of course, its difficult to get him to go to bed anyway.

 

I like DST and wouldn't have a problem keeping it forwarded.  That extra hour of light keeps me busy and possibly 10 lbs lighter in the long run.

I'd get a clear bra first.  I've put them on my last 3 vehicles and they're well worth the money.

Never seen one of those, even on cars.

Edit; But after looking them up it looks like a much better idea over the old style black ugly ones.

Yes you have.  That's the nice part.  They protect but aren't obvious.  The car I've brought to Hope the last 4 years or so has one.  You've probably seen a bunch of them.
