That's why we have the holidays - so people don't get depressed moving into deep winter. Woo hoo! Santa! Gifts! Food! Super Bowl!

All distractions when otherwise we'd realize it's going to be 20 below!

the only reason "they" keep this nonsense up is making human spend MORE money when its
dark going home than they would when the sun would still be lighting the skies On the way home.

once, it was SPPSD to be about farming...giving the farmers more light in the mornings so they
could slave Earlier all thru winter.

this sudden change of daylight fucks kids up big time.

there is NO reason for this other than..get them shopping early buying that coffee that
shit from the fast shit stand.
buying crap on the way home AT NITE IN THE DARK...for some sense of warmth or comfort.

marketing people have the human "number" down. never doubt that.

yeh farmers HATE this shit.

People do seem to miss the sun in the afternoon. November is when you really notice it.

It's not very well known, but actually the earliest sunset in the U.S. is NOT on the solstice. It usually comes around December 5. In other words, about a week from now. The earth's orbit isn't circular, it's slightly elliptical, and things get out of phase. The solstice is the shortest day, but not the earliest sunset or the latest sunrise. That second one is sometime around New Year's.

You'll notice the later sunsets in a few more weeks, even though the days are actually shorter.

The L.A. sunset right now is around 4:45 PM. That's about as early as it ever gets. It'll be back closer to 5 by the end of the year.

The problem with year-round daylight saving time is that many places would have the sun rising at 8 AM. That's kind of dangerous, with people going to work and school. Schools get out at 3 or so, so it's less of a problem in the afternoon.

The main problem with DST right now is that you run out of daylight to save. Rational countries change it closer to the equinoxes. Here, it is governed by commerce. Really. One of the adjustments was to sell charcoal.

Until relatively recently, one task of religion was to provide a cosmology, and yes, most synced to the cycle of the seasons. Most of the Christian holidays appropriated Pagan festivals. Halloween = Samhain, Christmas = Yule or Saturnalia, Easter is tied to the spring equinox, etc.

This is a nasty time of year. My SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) is ramping up. The sun is setting at 4 and it's dark by 6.

Hurry up spring.

When the sun rises and set really doesn't bother me since I get up well after sunrise. As for sunset, I don't notice it because I usually close the curtain in the living room in mid-to-late afternoon because the sun's rays are too bright. I can see how the DST can affect people especially those who work. You notice the one hour difference when DST takes effect and I'd say it's more "mental" than physical.

Yeah the spring DST transition is rough for some reason. The fall one wouldn't be so bad if it came closer to the equinox, but they keep extending it for various reasons. By November, there's no way to fall back without it suddenly making a big difference.

yah did that in WA for 5mos year.


from about 5-7pm now i use a simple 'blue bulb' which are dual spectrum.

its good to remember to turn these 'sun light' bulbs off about 7pm or you can be up awake
for far too long.
growers working under these dual spectrum lights...must have a hard time sleeping.

It's a rough life here but it's a sacrifice I'm willing to make. ;) It's a 10-minute walk to the bay or the beach and most of the year I can wear shorts and a tee shirt.

BTW, it does get dark here but being next to a large city we get a lot of reflected light from the city. When it's overcast, the city lights up the underside of the clouds giving the sky a light appearance.

For those not fortunate to live in the San Diego area, sorry but this is almost like heaven.

I notice that in NYC the current sunset time is 4:29 PM, but in L.A. it's 4:45. Friends in Germany are bitching that the sun barely comes up at all, and of course there are parts of Norway where it really doesn't.

I would imagine, though, that except for Norway, this is about as early is it's going to get. Maybe a couple more minutes, max.

I don't mind it in L.A.. Thanks to climate change, it's always so damn hot in this forsaken little desert basin. Sea breezes barely exist more than a mile from the ocean. That's not a problem for San Diego, at least not the harbor part. Here, there's always some excuse for the atmosphere to put a high pressure system right where it guarantees that the sun shines every day and the wind comes off the mountains and heats it up even more. (Laws of physics.)

Darkness is like a recharge in this hellhole. I realize that I would not be saying this pretty much anywhere else in the Northern Hemisphere above the tropics.
