Posted:OK, I have a serious question and I ask it every year and I've never gotten a straight answer.

Right now it's 1:34 AM in NYC. In 26 minutes I set my clocks back one hour to 1AM due to daylight savings.

How do people differentiate it?

Like, if there was a flight leaving now from the airport and one leaving in an hour... how would you know which one you're on? There have got to be trains and busses that do strange things. Like do the tickets say you leave at 1:45 and arrive 20 minutes later at 1:05?

Or if a cop arrested you, how would he dictated that he arrested you now, and not in an hour.

There's got to be an answer.

Anyone?


Well, shall we go?

All this complaining from you Northern Hemispherians...

Spare a thought for the girl way down below whose clock went forward an hour and gets up at 5am daily - the body still screameth "Nooooo....it's 4....sleeeeeeep"

time, the hour, the minute, the second: it's 1:12am on tuesday the 1st november. Is such an arbitrary conecpt made up by man. It means nothing.

That means for me this year, my baby is going to wake up an hour early.

Posted:And another year.

I still don't understand what happens.

I'm going to ask a cop tonight if I see one how they do it.

I'm sure mike is right about doctors. Maybe that's how everyone does it.

Posted:The cop says they just write 1:30 for both times.

So they can give a guy two parking tickets with the same time an hour apart.

Strange.
