Lets hope at least 3 million people see this and contribute to a change. 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 (: oh my god THANK YOU. jesus I’m actually learning…feels good bro. Thank you for an interesting discussion about a completely pointless and old fashioned tradition. @CGPGrey Well that may sadly be true, but at least we Floridians can spend Christmas day getting sunburns at the beach. Love your stuff! Keep the videos coming! 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. Forget daylight savings. You can’t fool my internal clock. I laughed so hard at this… „Yo dawg, I heard you like timezones so we put some time zones in your time zones.“ Lol I live and travel through that 100 mile stretch inside Arizona 😛 I agree, DTS is annoying… @Beefkake67 Ha, good one 😛 @ 6:00 The US should have those 1$ Daylight Savings Time is one of the most retarded things we’ve ever adopted, only second to Marijuana illegality. @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! I say we keep it because we get an extra hour at the bars before last call in the fall. I never knew that daylight savings was that confusing or complex! clock time doesn’t exist in reality anyways…. why wasn’t this in my sub box? 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? 🙁 The UN really needs to have a meeting about this So, is it time for lunch yet? At what time? @NextToNothing123 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* 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. 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. Inception navajo style @aggressiveperfect38 Wow, you just made a perfectly stupid and ignorant comparison. Kudos! @jonesyak i know i was like HAHA Exhibit pun @CGPGrey You use Dvorak! Hey 😀 Wicked!! 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) More people seem to be interested in Dvorak then Daylight Savings Time itself. Maybe make a video explaining Dvorak? Sweden fucking loves daylight saving time @aggressiveperfect38 i’m glad to say i’m fluent in both QWERTY and Dvorak. =) ¡Hola! @aggressiveperfect38 using the metric system is a very good idea, I don’t see why you are rejecting it. @musicpilgrimages Germany too @LOTRzagorath just for info. why Dvorak is simpler than QWERT ? , I use Qwert , that’s why I asked ? just wait a few years global warming will change all that DST, you might wanna throw your watches then @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. Minecraft!! @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. @SushantBhargav If you’re interested in making the switch, ask me here, or send me a private message. I’d be glad to give you assistance. It’s a really easy process. SAY NO TO THE DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME! and to think that i found this guy by watching something about coffee DST is stupid and should just go away Star trek holodeck anyone lool! at 2:38 OKAY WE GET IT, YOU VISIT 4CHAN. It’s not „cool“ or „insidery“. Everyone knows about it. @ZachWulf I don’t go to 4Chan — it is a scary place. @theocraftable A great shame about your Brian being so stupid he is going to explode. @kiddermister brain* 😛 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) 5:20-5:30 EPIC! 😀 Just another artifact of humans needing to make things more complicated than they actually are… GG. 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. 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“, What a tremendous effort. Well done. How did you do the viedo that got a huge views in just a week> 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. For me Daylight Saving Time has more disadvantages than advantages ;( I like the secret annotations on iPhone T 5:49. Nice touch Can’t decide whether the image of Germans presented in this video is funny or sad in its narrow-mindedness 😉 Nice and entertaining explanation, though @torgede It’s intended to be awesome. I love Germany. @doggetay Thank you. My personal favorite is ‚the website is down‘ on the noose. 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. @MrArth13 Thanks for your comment. Why should we educate stupid people when we can just point and laugh at them instead? cgpgrey is an apple fanboy lol jk. 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.

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 have. We do plenty of stupid things for the same reason: because we’ve been doing them for years. Who gives a damn anyways? 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? Now i get it…Lol…xD I really enjoy your Videos Homes 😀 @Derax2 I yelled out „That’s a lot!“ but then he said the opposite and I was quite confused. @ZeElitegamer That’s about $560,000,000 then. Eddard Stark never says „Brace yourselves“ god damn it. @CGPGrey One freethinker in a group of hive drones Queensland, Australia doesn’t conform to daylight savings. 2:46 !!!MINECRAFT!!! VSAUSE!!!!!! where is 1:50 from lol? I fucking hate the DST more sun in the blazing summer in Los Angeles fuck you!!!!I want it to get darker faster! so I can be inside 5:06 DST within DST?? DSception! We must go deeper… I really think it’s a waste of time and should be done away with. nice vid again WINTER IS COMING! fantastic. you forgot about indiana en wikipedia org wiki Time_in_Indiana @CGPGrey I love how Apple always says „Think Different.“ But the kickass guy with the Dell is the one LIVING that statement. lol Thanks for fueling the argument that my family has every 6 months… Minecraft is a definite theme in your video’s isn’t it ? ;P yao ming meme at 2:24 would’ve fit well lol @Zeolahn I agree! Holodeck FTW Goddamn Arizona and their indecision @CGPGrey sad?! i heart my Dell Ned Stark never says „brace yourselves“… Russia’s new law is great! Only summer time! Screw winter and screw the time change twice a year!!! i love ur videos i just wish you made them more often @CGPGrey You mean the guy copying off the Mac next to him? @CGPGrey If you dont mind telling what do you use to make these I get it now! DST is completely pointless!! My life now has meaning!! 😀 wooooooooooo go Saskatchewan I love how you used two 2-dollar bills. LOL. 😀 Thank you CGPGrey for again thoroughly explaining how complicated something is 🙂 2:40 minecraft lol 😀 I love The Website is Down! Go you! @DinosaurWithRobotEye Why don’t they make more! MOAR WEB DUDE! MOAR! @markec123456 Try Star Trek… might get further 5:47 Alien Blue <3 Forever alone and minecraft…..EPIC In Saskatchewan we have DLS all year. Love how you always have a reference to minecraft in a video XD 2:44-2:48 MINECRAFT!!!!! 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. 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. I’m glad I live in Arizona. 🙂 I USE IT TO SLEEEEEP!!! let’s go back at sun-based clocks, shall we? with the technology like satellite, it seems weather doesn’t bother the time, WOO!!! NON NAVAJO PART OF ARIZONA!!! But how can you tell time at night, with no moon! D: a moon-based clock at night then :p Does daylight savings time increase seasonal affective disorder? 5:34 Hahahaha!!! just 1 more!! ahahahha i see what you did there 🙂 Could I have an image of „THE UNIVERSE IS INDIFFERENT TO YOUR HUMAN CONCERNS“? Does anyone know why daylight savings time was changed in 2007? 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!

Just… lovely. 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. Kommentare sind geschlossen.
