Then in the fall, instead of going back an hour, we could just go forward 23 hours. We should do this on Sunday night.
 

 

There you go. Excellent idea. Too bad there aren't creative thinkers like us in government!

I actually like Daylight Savings time and would be happy to see it all year. But if we are going to keep switching back and forth, some changes should be made:

1) We need to make the switch on Sunday nights. This is important

2)  Forget spring ahead. Instead of putting the clocks ahead an hour, turn them back 23 hours and gain (almost) an extra Sunday.

3) Autumn should be obvious from the above. Don't fall back, put the clocks ahead 23 hours and miss Monday.

Vote for me and I'll fix things. 

 
finally logic even I can understand

Hmmm, need to develop a policy paper after researching some focus groups. I hear that the teenagers want to make noon the official dawn. Would you like to speak at the hearing? Under oath of course.

Yes, every year I have to explain why I'm not giving any extra compensation for this one extra hour some one has to be here. Oddly, I never get people complaining about being paid the full shift when it is an hour shorter in the spring.  They also don't complain about getting a full paycheck in February despite working 10% fewer days.

We also have a LOT of equipment that all needs to be synchronized. And even among the units that do NTP, there is a lot of variance in how it is implemented and everything needs to be cross checked.  If we ever had a failure at midnight on the time change, the incident report would have 20 pages of time coordination adjustments.
