I always cannot wait for DST as I finally have light after work to do things outdoors.GliderJohn
Retailers, sporting goods makers, and other businesses benefit from extra afternoon sunlight, as it induces customers to shop and to participate in outdoor afternoon sports. In 1984, Fortune magazine estimated that a seven-week extension of DST would yield an additional $30 million for 7-Eleven stores, and the National Golf Foundation estimated the extension would increase golf industry revenues $200 million to $300 million. A 1999 study estimated that DST increases the revenue of the European Union's leisure sector by about 3%.
I hate DST. No one knows why the congress passed it in the 60s. Was it because the Congress wanted to change everyone's work schedule do they could play golf in the evening? Who knows?
But I am retired...screw it. :bike
I'm pretty sure the reason I gave in my post above is correct.
and Jim, I am pretty sure I mentioned golf too. So that would boost business? Maybe sleep deprived zombies will spend more because they are in a daze? Theories and assumptions.
Energy savings. Less people use lights in the morning than in the evening.
let me take this argument to the next level:Not only should we eliminate DST in the USA, would should also consolidate times zones from 4 to 3.Yes, THREE time zones and NO DST.
Hmmm,this thread is the reason I prefer not to hang around with people my age....They piss and moan about stuff I never think about ;D ;D
But...1.Atlantic Time Zone2.Eastern Time Zone3.Central Time Zone4.Mountain Time Zone5.Pacific Time Zone6.Alaska Time Zone7.Hawaii–Aleutian Time ZoneTalk about screwing up circadian rhythms! Three time zones in the Lower 48? How would you set that up?
