US Dopers: Don't forget to set your clocks back this weekend

Don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour on Saturday night.

Us too, eh.

People still have clocks they have to manually set back?


I’ll have to stay up and see what my iPhone does. :slight_smile:

Oh, yes, Santo Rugger. Especially the one that changed to EST last weekend instead of this weekend, and now needs to be set to EST manually, because of the fact that they keep jacking around with the start/end dates of DST.

Don’t forget to stock up on canned food, bottled water, batteries, a propane stove, and a hand-cranked radio/flashlight. I assume you already have a generator and plenty of diesel on hand. This could get rough as everyone gets confused and starts driving around at the wrong time. One would: Mayhem. The U.S. will be unusually vulnerable as the military loses coordination as soldiers frantically changing the clocks. The nuclear subs may not even be aware of what is happening.

My @#@$ VCR reset itself last week, so it missed recording my favorite shows!

You Americans are soooooooooo behind, we had our change to daylight savings last weekend.

This was clearly a plot enacted by politicians last year in order to ensure that Americans from the opposite party were still stumbling around and confused on Tuesday, thereby causing them to show up to the polls too early and get turned away and depriving them of their votes.

If you already set your clocks back, aren’t you the ones that are behind? Or did I just blow your mind?!? :smiley:

I’m from Arizona. I get to point and laugh at the rest of you. No Daylight time here, so no need to reset the clocks.:stuck_out_tongue:

My boss insists that the rule for this year is to turn the clocks back 1 hour and 18 minutes. :smack: Idiot

Usually not. My computer has an automated system that took care of that a few weeks ago. :rolleyes:

We do have Congressional Representatives that can’t be left alone with a calendar and a pen, though.
