My Political Platform

On this special day where our clocks change, I would like to remind everyone of my political platform.

I'm not really for much, but I'm against a lot. I'm...
  • ...anti-DST
  • ...anti-time zone
  • ...anti-histamine

And yes, you adjust to jetlag now, but that is just the adjustment from "8am Charlotte local time" to "2am London local time." You adjust your body so that you begin to go to bed at 10pm London local time, and to eat breakfast at 8am London local time. You do the same things at the same time every day.

It seems to me that what you propose is much more difficult. If you usually eat breakfast in Charlotte at 8am and were to travel from Charlotte to Cape Town, how would you know whether to eat breakfast at midnight, 1am, 2am, 3am, or some other time? How would you know when to get up? It would be much more difficult to shift your thinking to "OK, now I get up at 1am, eat breakfast at 2am, and lunch at 8am" than it would to merely adjust to a different zone.

I am totally with you on the DST thing tho. ;)

BTW, when the time zones go away, so does AM/PM. It's all 24-hour format all the time.

Doesn't matter. Substitute "0200" for 2am, "0300" for 3am, et cetera. ;)

Oh yeah, I know. I was just clarifying the implementation a bit.
