  1. I like DST here in the UK, it’s nice to have the sun last longer in to the night. For example, When I finish work in Winter it’s dark, but in the summer it’s still sunny and light. It’s just a nicer feeling to finish work with light compared to the winter?.

    I hope we keep DST.. hell, increase it by 2 hours – I’d be happier (:

  2. I live in Saskatchewan. 2 things id like to correct you on. Everyone in the provice calls it „saskatchewin“ its still spelled with an a at the end we just say it like that. 2, some cities and towns use DST whereas some dont. Its really split.

  3. @BitterBurst You do realize that this is not „solving the problem“.. you are just acting different from the rest of the world! the way I see it, you are just making the „problem“ worst!

  4. When I lived in Japan, they stayed on one time. I loved it. I lived in the North where we had severe winter weather and hot humid (short) summers. I actually didn’t mind that we got „fewer“ hours of sun. Who wants to go outside in hot nasty weather if they can help it? ๐Ÿ™

  5. Your videos are wicked informative and make learning super fun. I want you to back in time to when i went to school and make videos for all the ballachingly dull subjects I had to hear dull teachers drone about. *licks shoes*

  6. Maybe we could make a Global Standard Time and memorize where we stand in accordance with that. So you could set up a meeting at 16:00 GST, for example and then everyone knows what time that is vs. their time.

  7. If you’re far enough away from the equator it makes a huge difference if the sun sets at 16 or 17, or maybe 15 vs 16 (24 hour clock ftw). It’s a full hour of daylight that you would otherwise have missed, at a time of day when you’re definitely awake. Maybe Arizona should sort out their business. No one would care to set their clock if they would drive through the area anyways, so that part wasn’t the strongest argument. Still a nice presentation of your views, so I’ll stop complaining.

  8. Step 1) Remove DST
    Step 2) Finally switch the US to metric with the rest of the world
    Step 3) Teach people to touch type Dvorak
    Step 4) Relax, the world is now a much simpler place.

    (I’m a Dvorak typist from Queensland, Australia :D)

  9. @SushantBhargav QWERTY was designed back in the days of typewriters, specifically to stop people jamming the typewriters by typing too fast.
    Dvorak is a more recent creation, designed specifically to place common letters in places easy to reach, to increase typing speed. Personally, when I first made the switch, it took a few months, but I eventually increased my average speed from 60 to over 80 words per minute.

  10. @SushantBhargav Disadvantages include the fact that it does take a while to learn. I took a few months, which isn’t too bad, but if you need to be typing fast, it could be problematic. There’s the „Colemak“ keyboard, which is kind of a halfway between QWERTY and Dvorak. (Search „Keyboard layout“ on Wikipedia, and go to 5.2 in the contents)
    Another disadvantage is that Dvorak is really only optimised for English. It’ll work alright for other Latin text languages, but it isn’t optimised.

  11. Great video and explanation of how Daylight Savings Time [doesn’t] work[s]! I couldn’t help but think of this clip from the West Wing, tho… youtube . com/ watch?v=- J1NHzQ1 sgc (I sure hope it’s okay to post links to other videos here…please forgive me if it’s not)

  12. People say you gain an hours sleep, but you don’t do you? Given your body clock still wakes you up at the same time, i.e 7am, it just happens to be an hour earlier, so you wake up at 6, and end up not able to get back to sleep!

    Either that, or DST is so fucking confusing I just don’t care.

  13. So, it took a six minute video for us to learn that it’s creator doesn’t like DST. While the video harped on the negatives of DST, like all things, there are both negative and positive effects of DST having to do with more than just saving money. These include public safety and economic issues other than energy use. A more accurate title for this video would have been, „Daylight Saving Time Explained And Why I Don’t Like It“,

  14. You also forgot to mention that a lot less people now work „normal“ day shift Monday-Friday jobs.
    Get rid of DST!
    If you want more sunlight, get up earlier.

  15. Can’t decide whether the image of Germans presented in this video is funny or sad in its narrow-mindedness ๐Ÿ˜‰ Nice and entertaining explanation, though

  16. I write calendaring software for the web. DST just cost my client about 50 hours of work trying to work out DST-related bugs. It would save money for everyone if we didn’t have to waste software development hours working around the BS that is DST.

  17. If you have young children, it’s hard to bring children to bed when it’s still daylight. I don’t see that in the video. (nice video either way) I am practically sure that there is correlation between fatigue and misbehavior and school results of kids since 1977. Also I am an evening person, I can only sleep when it is dark, so in the summertime I have always problems with standing up in the morning more than I normally do.

  19. I live in Arizona and I always wondered how everyone in other places knows when the clock-changing happens? Is there like a special Daylight Savings Time Day or is it just announced whenever?

  20. 1:15
    „The further a country is from the equator the more it uses daylight saving time“
    *looking at the map*
    *looking at the clock*
    THANKS BRAZIL, I LIVE IN A BULLSHIT DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME WHILE THE EQUATOR IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER HERE.
    Dumbasses.

  21. Actually it is important for people who live in one place, at autumn you usually get really stressed but when the clock goes to Standard time,, you can sleep more and it reduces stress, but yes i agree with you, when you want to travel then it’s difficult.

  22. let’s go back at sun-based clocks, shall we? with the technology like satellite, it seems weather doesn’t bother the time,

  23. always said DST is completely useless. because I take meds every damn morning for the past IDK 20 years, it also brings me a lot of pain when I have to move my meds an hour each way which takes about a week to recover. the rest of the world is doing fine w/o DST, and we did fine as a people for 10K years before! SO GET RID OF IT

  26. DST is an absolute nightmare for software that has to operate reliably during the „fall back“ switchover. If the user needs to input after the fact an event that happened at 1:30 AM that day, you pretty much have to ask them „Was this in CST or CDT?“ And displaying that data trail later is even more confusing.

    If the goal is that everyone gets up, works, and goes to bed later, then let’s just change summer work hours from 9-5 to 10-6 instead of corrupting the data stream.
