DST begins April 2 at 2 am. So for those of us who aren't used to it, this is a reminder to move your clocks ahead 1 hour. :D

I still think it's ridiculuous, but then again what do I know! :rolleyes:

My teacher says that I'm "waaaay to Hoosier-nized.." since I think it's just weird to have to physically move half the clocks around the house.

I've never had to mess with this stuff before; I'm waiting to have a clock not get changed and mess up my schedule for the day or some such thing.

Some clocks, in order to change them, you almost have to be a genius to figure out how to change them! :mad:

Some digital watches and car stereos are the worst.

Both :D Yeah I'm attacking myself. :laugh:

What really stinks is the none of my shows are going to be on an hour earlier like they usually are. I always liked that! :mad: :soundoff:

Come on guys if the entire country can catch on, I'm sure Indiana won't have a problem with it.

Well i don't have to change my clock and I live in Indiana... :tongue:




Although it would have been interesting because I work from 5pm to 4am tonight, I could have lost or gained an hour of labor...

Everyone, check out Pacers Theater on www.pacers.com (http://www.pacers.com). David Harrison has a message for you!

I love the guitars in the background.

Somewhere on the right.

You know, there's an entire country that surrounds Indiana. Indiana's flip-flopping time zone (relative to the rest of the country) makes it really hard to conduct interstate business with companies in Indiana. If you don't think it's a big deal, think about this: it effectively eliminates an entire hour of viable business communication with those (like me, and I even grew up there) who can't keep up.

Finally, I won't miss the beginnings of Pacers games at the end of the season.

FINALLY, I won't call someone in the middle of thier lunch hour, when I thought I was calling before or after.

FINALLY, I won't wake my mother up when I call home a little too early or a little too late because I don't know what freakin' time zone you're in.

Welcome to the United States.

Now, if you want to make an argument that NOBODY should change their clocks, I'll be the first to sign the petition.

What's really weird is there are some counties that will be in 2 different time zones. :confused: So the people that live across the street in one of those counties, can be an hour ahead or an hour behind the people that live on the other side of the street. :confused:

Now that mess is ALL Indiana's fault and completely ridiculous.

I agree. Those counties should be in the same time zone!

The whole state should be in the same time zone.

Letting 97 different teeny-tiny counties all go different ways just adds more confusion.

But splitting 15 mile wide counties into two pieces? Man, that goes from 'stupid' to 'fiasco' on the official LA's dumb-o-meter.

I went ahead and switched all of my clocks about an hour ago just to get it over with.

Man how come a lot of you havent heard of DST?? It happens twice a year up here in Canada. I thought his was a world wide or at the least North American wide practise. I gues I learn something new everyday

Natston
04-02-2006, 06:22 AM
How is that? :confused:Since I'm in one of the counties that's going to be central year round we don't have to change the clocks now. However I'll have to worry about it in October...

I've lived in two of the three states that don't change. AZ and IN. I still have no idea why AZ still isn't caught up. I can see Hawaii, but not AZ or IN. It is kind of cool though because now the Pacers game start at 4 here, when the games are at 7:00 EST.

Not that it matters any more but here's how I was able to keep it straight for 30 years. If it's winter Indiana is on the same time as Detroit and Parkersburg, WV. If it's summer it's the same time as in Chicago and Houston. I never had any trouble with it.
