Daylight Savings Time is the greatest inconvenience ever posed. Whenever I face someone with this clear in mind they avidly strive to denounce my claims and bring fallible importance to it. If during a portion of the year we set our clocks forward and then later set our clocks back we are clearly setting ourselves up for catastrophic failure. Firstly Daylight Savings Time wastes the time of every single person who has to set back each and every clock in the world and secondly it's pointless to add hours one day and take them away another. It's similar to as follows:
6 + 1 + 6 - 1 = 12
As you can see the above mathematical equation clearly lays out the idea of Daylight Savings Time, each number equating to about an hour in an average cycle. If you think about it, 6 hours isn't a variable, it's a set constant. Also they can be placed in any other portion of the equation, the time will still add up the same:
6 = 6
1 + 6 + 6 -1 = 12
This much is obvious enough, also enough to show that an hour is still an hour no matter when it ticks. But ultimately the equation shows that the equation is unnecessarily long and can easily be shortened for simplicity. If we equate the number 1 with the hour each year that is deducted and then added in the name of Daylight Savings Time:
1 - 1 = 0
6 + 6 [+ 0] = 12
Then we can easily simplify the equation to the point where it's no longer applied, this can be done because the hour of Daylight Savings Time has already been proven to have no alternative features, it's not a variable and it can be positioned differently throughout the equation, put simply, an hour is just an hour and we are wasting our time arranging the world's schedule to accommodate something as superficial as a small period of sunlight, when in the grand scheme of things (6 + 6), it needn't apply.
Among the same lines is the Time Zone factor, this is also highly unnecessary.
Now I can understand the desire to get a fair day's worth of sunlight anywhere in the world on almost any day at 3 pm, but the complete nonsensical nature of it, utterly erases it's remote benefits, for example:
If a sister lives somewhere where it's 6 pm and she calls her brother where it's 2 pm, according to the logical workings of time, she is illogically dialing a number to a phone that rang fours hours before in the past, yet despite this inconstancy, the two can easily converse with one another, creating the paradox of someone who's voice can be heard before it's ever spoken. This of course is completely ludicrous and as we know is impossible , yet every day thousands of people from around the world make long distance calls that dial a phone somewhere in the future or past, completely ripping apart the very fabric of time.
Of course we should know better, we know that the person isn't bending time when they make international calls and we know a person doesn't age more when they fly west, if that was the case, they'd be stuck at the midnight mark and only have the option of flying back in time as if their lives were governed by Tivo.
Certainly these impossibilities are only abstract and only exist because we have redefined our idea of time since it was first proposed. Thus if we wish not to continue to live in such a broken world we must abolish Daylight Savings Time as well as the idea of Time Zones.
Also Nickle00, of course the entire world operates on Daylight Savings Time, if it didn't, international flights would cause innumerable crises.
That's my two cents.
Racism = Speciesism just as Homophobia = Incestophobia.
Disagree? Then consider that we're all related to some degree and by extension, every sexual instance is incestuous to some degree. The level at which it is typically considered "incest" is entirely arbitrary. If you're the kind of person...
