Okay people this is the reason why you have DST: every time it comes before Congress to get rid of this stupid idea, the lobbyists for the barbecue grill and sporting goods industries lean on the craven politicians and the bill dies in committee or some other arcane wheeler dealer bullshit. There, now you know. There will never be meaningful change in this country ever again.

In Queensland, Australia, cows are the main excuse for not having daylight savings. It’s “It’ll confuse the cows” and “curtains will fade faster” everywhere you look.

Daylight savings should be abolished; it served a useful purpose at some point, fine! That's history. It doesn't serve a useful purpose anymore. It has become utterly useless and stupid.

I’ve heard that DST actually hurts dairy farmers because the cows end up getting milked an hour too late, and the milk buildup can be painful.

If we've been saving an hour a year for the past 100 years, that's about 4 days, where are the 4 days and what is the government doing with them?

I'm from Iowa and our economy is of course fueled by farming, agriculture, and of course dumb cows - but we hate daylight savings time.

my teacher said that who ever invented it was for humans to get an extra hour of sunshine which means happiness. Then companies started to enforce it so that people will have an extra hour of shopping

While the times of sunrise and sunset change at roughly equal rates as the seasons change, proponents of Daylight Saving Time argue that most people prefer a greater increase in daylight hours after the typical "nine to five" workday.[15][16] Supporters have also argued that DST decreases energy consumption by reducing the need for lighting and heating, but the actual effect on overall energy use is heavily disputed.

In Canada/Quebec, we justify it by the fact it makes our working hours be more during the sunlight hours. So it is a bit helpful here.

Amy Francko (2 месяца назад)
here in the US, march daylight savings time means getting up when its dark. March in Ohio first light is 7am with sunset at 8pm. In the summer it could be light until 9pm or 10pm

Yeah blame it on the germans as everything else. But why did the germans have to save fuel during WWI? Because the British had a sea blockade on the germans. So blame the fuckin island monkeys instead of the germans dear John Oliver.

Living in Canada, fed up with Daylight Saving Time (which doesn't actually save daylight) I came up with this solution: next time we have to "fall back" 1 hour, we all set our clocks back just 1/2 hour instead. We will never have to adjust the clock again! This strategy I called "Set it and Forget It". Think about it: who will notice or care about 1/2 hour difference in the time the sun rises and sets? Certainly not farmers, or Kaiser Wilhelm!
JVIPER88 (2 месяца назад)
It's still a thing because being in total darkness at 4PM in the winter is fuckin' dumb.
Daniel (2 месяца назад)
This video is so f stupid hahaha before you say that daylight saving increse consumes and after 2 secs you say that it doesnt hahaha also you didnt mentioned the time that you sleep an hour more. Daylight savings decrease the time of lights on in favour of sun light
# cadeeja (2 месяца назад)
Slight correction here: Yes, Germany was the first country to actually induce daylight saving time, BUT: Benjamin Franklin was the first who - historically documented - mentioned that a moved daytime routine would save on artificial lighting. Then, later, George Vernon Hudson (1895) and William Willett (1907) suggested a seasonal shift of time. Aaaand, then again, Great Britain, btw., was the only country who upheld DST between World Wars I and II. So, blame right back at ya and at where you live now and broadcast from. Just sayin'. :D

2:47 That word is literally broken down into the words for Right/Just, Protect, Insurance/Assurance, and Company. Basically any kind of insurance agency. Don’t you just love the German language? If they need new words, they just combine old words! (It’s actually a little more complex than that, but you get the idea.)

Hold up, Benjamin Franklin instituted daylight savings here because of the consumption of candles otherwise
GroverKent (3 месяца назад)
He said the "modern" daylight saving.
Doveranalyst (3 месяца назад)
Ok. What is daylight saving?
Doveranalyst (3 месяца назад)
GroverKent Atleast for 2 billion people it is not. Lol. I was trying to understand there and again, appreciate your effort for writing out. Do check out which idiot you spent this time for (on my channel). Lol. Even if you technically, say don't put up candles till 7pm. It is going to be dark, nevertheless, even if you changed the clocks like a little child you can't stop the sun. Wouldn't it have been easier to say, rule no candles until 8pm
GroverKent (3 месяца назад)
It's complicated, and makes no sense in today's world, but this all started back way before electricity was ever discovered. Benjamin Franklin invented Daylight Saving so that way, according the clock, night wouldn't fall until much later in the evening, so as to save on the use of candles. Since the advent of electricity, it really makes Daylight Saving pointless and meaningless, which is why it really no longer needs to be a thing.
Doveranalyst (3 месяца назад)
GroverKent Thankyou so much for taking the time to answer it though.
Doveranalyst (3 месяца назад)
GroverKent What? How's that even possible? I mean clocks work on a different rule, don't They? People can't just adjust clocks as per will and for what joy? This is going beyond me. I first thought maybe they cut the power in the daylight for an hour or so. But mobiles? In this day and age our automatic time zones the time on our phones. How can we reset ? I am from India and had never heard of this before.
GroverKent (3 месяца назад)
It's basically resetting our clocks an hour forward in the spring, then resetting back an hour again in the fall.

Who and why is changing the time to daylight saving time stop it keep the summer time on
Costeno Salao (3 месяца назад)
If it wasn't for daylight savings time, kids would have to wait for the bus in the dark in the winter months. Also, gardeners wouldn't have as much time in the garden after work in April and May (far busier for gardening than Sept.) Leave DST alone.
Costeno Salao (3 месяца назад)
GroverKent - Good catch. I guess I was defending the current system, not just DST.
GroverKent (3 месяца назад)
Not quite, because there is no DST in winter.

I hate dst. It's dumb and waste of time and out of date.I wish our government in the usa would get rid of it forver.i have got better things to do than changing my clocks all the time.
GroverKent (3 месяца назад)
It's Bush's fault that DST now runs from March to November instead of April to October. He said it'd help improve trade wars with other countries, but the only other country that extended DST with the US was Canada, all other countries that still observe DST never extended it.

How could Daylight Saving Time be for farmers, or anybody who works outside? They can’t change when the sun rises and sets.

Pretty sure it's still a thing to benefit corporations. If it's still daylight out after people get out of work they are more likely to go shopping or whatever.

It's about saving energy. That and there's a story of how the American Colonists fighting the British for independence ambushed them before a battle because they got up one hour earlier.

It's really sad Bavaria seems to be the only source of German culture for non Germans... people who are not from down there may feel... well... like they weren't existing. And why are you frightened by Rechtsschutzversicherungsgesellschaften? 😂 But indeed, daylight saving is stupid and it sucked since I was a kid. Thanks to lwt I now know whom I have to thank for it. Not that I was into Wilhelm before...
Walt Hamer (3 месяца назад)
The actual reason for daylight savings is due to the fact the sun naturally rises earlier and sets later in the summertime, so apparently us sleeping in till 7 wastes daylight so we have to put the clocks ahead. Congratulations Summertime; as well as the January heat wave in my country and the amount of sand getting in my gumboots, you have found another reason to annoy me. Can't wait for autumn to start on March 21

I like DST. More daylight at the end of the day. DST should be year round.
Dianica Welles (3 месяца назад)
When I was a child I think I recall that daylight savings was stopped and reinstated later because children who had to walk to school in the dark were thought to be in danger of harm coming to them.
Charlie Light (3 месяца назад)
This was probably in 1974 (the oil crisis led to clocks getting set forward in January with the intent to keep them there year-round; from what I've heard, children getting hit by cars near bus stops was the biggest reason why the experiment was ended that fall).
