Most of the United States begins Daylight Saving Time at 2:00 a.m. on the second Sunday in March and reverts to standard time on the first Sunday in November. In the U.S., each time zone switches at a different time.

This may sound weird but I haven't changed the clocks in the kitchen and car since the last time change. I may change them to show an hour ahead again (2 hours) on Sunday. It makes me feel like I'm ahead.

We don't spring anywheres. I think we're the only state now that doesn't change time.

I don't know why we do this any more. it causes more problems than it solves.

Arizona (except Navajo) and Hawaii do not, apparently. Indiana recently began to observe it. New Mexico has never not observed it, that I know of.

Hahaha I was just listening to that song. Well, actually the Lars Frederiksen version. But still.

Lars Frederiksen and the Bastards are, just as you said, a great good old-fashioned punk rock band. They have two albums, and both are excellent. Viking is my favorite of the two. If you have the chance, you should give em a listen.
And I still don't know when daylights saving time is...

We have never sprung or fell. We just stay the same.

It pisses me off when people in Arizona will say things like "We're on Pacific Time now". Fuck that shit. We're ALWAYS on Mountain Standard Time. It's the Pacific zone that's on OUR time now. :)

What's lame is my wife manages a national call center, and everyone has to go to work an hour earlier half the year just to accomodate the other 49 states who let THE MAN tell them what time it is.

I feel that. At my old job in AZ, we operated on stock market hours. In the winter, I needed to be in at 7:00 AM. I used to dread the time change, as I would have to be in at 6:00.

Southern Indiana is what doesnt change, but if they began to oberve it, then only AZ and Hawaii stay the same.
