LOL, I sent a mod report to hopefully correct the politicality of that post. No harm intended. I usually stay out of political stuff, notice how I posted the thread on the Presidential Race but have yet to reply to anything. Besides, political parties are dumb, George Washington had that right on the button, just leads to corruption and corporate greed.
I like the daylight later also, but still, I lost an hour of sleep today, got only like 5 hours of it. Also, I want to stay up later cuz it doesn't feel late at all, even at like 2-3 a.m. Then when I get up for school, it feels like 5 a.m. instead of 6 and I think 6 is early enough already. Here are the US Government's reason for daylight savings:
-It saves energy. When we're awake, we're more likely to have our TVs, VCRs, and lights on (among other home appliances). By shifting the hours we're likely to be awake to correspond with the daylight outside, we're less likely to have the lights on, so we use less electricity.
-It saves lives. When people's waking hours correspond with daylight hours, they're safer. Traffic accidents, for example, are less likely when it's light out.
-It cuts down on crime. Crime tends to happen after dark. As is the case with accidents, people are less likely to fall victim to crime when their waking hours are synched up with the sun.
And that's why most of the United States and many other countries take part in the twice-yearly clock-adjusting ritual. Most, not all. More on that later.
