60 milion +

Post by Gibbo2286 »

People with their body clocks disrupted :(

Why do we still mess with the clocks in spring and autumn?

I see Morocco has dumped the change this year.

Mine suffers terribly... I was not at all well yesterday and nor today - until after a decent bike ride...

I'd be delighted if we stayed on one or the other all the time...

I think it was Turkey who abolished it a couple of years back... Microsoft had to release a Windows patch to deal with the new 'Turkey Time' as I recall...

I may be wrong on the details but it was something like that...

I also have the pain of resetting all my clocks... Only my GPS sports watch, bike computer and home computery devices change automatically...

Yep, one time year-round would be magic...

Anyone remember double daylight saving back in the 60s? It never quite caught on as I recall...

I looked it up. It wasn't double DST but fixed at GMT +1 all year round. 1968 for three years so mid teens for me. I remember it happening but that's about all.

Double DST was introduced during the second world war and stayed until 1947 when it reverted to normal. Before my time that.

This is all in the news because EU is being pressed to abolish it.

On a side note, there was an interesting program about the evolution of the sleep cycle with an experiment to test our Kardashian rhythm.
(well it might as well be the new Circadian rhythm, people seem to live their lives according to daily news stories) :P

My dog does not understand why the clocks change either, I have explained it to him many times but no, the decision was made before his time. You see his problem is, he is hungry and it is only it is 4 o'clock!
