    Yep.   A third of the state celebrates it by cussing out the government for their unwillingness to change it (claim they're being paid off by the clock-winders lobby).  Another third go out and protest against the ones who want it changed (don't mess with our clocks).  The rest are unaware that it happened (why am I the only one at work?)?

      Wait, what about the fourth third of people in your state? You’re leaving some people out, and I can’t tell whether or how it’s intentional. Grrrrrrr.



    (Just kidding; I know there are only two halves to a third. I’m not dumb, eye no mathe.)

    You know maths? Three halves to a third.

    It's hard to do frictions when you only have ... uh ... (let's see, 1 ...2... 4 ... 9 ...6 ...5) ... 5 fingers.

    Where is it not observed? Isn’t it federal law?

      Nope. Not every state observes it.

    I know for sure that Arizona does not observe. When I was still employed, our company's servers were located in Arizona and it added a new wrinkle in figuring out when processes should be scheduled.

      Thank you. I thought that Arizona is the state or one of the states that doesn’t observe it, which was the basis for the way I worded my original post. You are very well informed.

    Yes and I would vote for eliminating it by moving the clock ahead half an hour and leaving it there.

      Half an hour? Why?

    Splits the difference between those who want it moved forward an hour and those who want it moved back a hour.

    Yes, but I just keep the same schedule with my animals anyway.  I milk the cows at 5:00 in the morning when standard time is in effect and I milk them at 6:00 in the morning when Daylight Saving Time is in effect.  I also keep my animals’ feeding schedules intact by doing everything an hour later (by the clock, not in reality) when DST is in effect.
