Hot Take of the Day: Ban Daylight Savings Time

This is an example of when a bad take is mistaken for a hot take.


These “hot” takes are getting cooler by the day. Daylight savings time and standard time are obsolete concepts with no point anymore. Only a fool believes he can cut 2 inches off the bottom of a blanket, sew it to the top and think he has a longer blanket.

I’m exhausted. Went to bed on time but my body says it’s too early and keeps me up in bed for an hour then I have to get outta bed and to work on time. That’s two hours of sleep lost so far this week, daylight savings time!

I wish they stick to one time or the other. I like standard time better. At this time of the year I prefer the daylight earlier in the morning. But that’s just me.

You got it backwards. Keep DST year round. It’s nice to have some daylight after work even in the winter. Would much rather have a little daylight in the evening with more moderate temperatures than in the morning during the coldest part of the day. As soon as we hit DST, I was able to do some chores and have time to play catch with my son before it was dark. It would be nice to do that on a mild day in the winter as well.


I’m with spencer.

Standard time is better when you work from daylight till dark.

I thought this is what he meant

Completely agree with this take. I don’t really care which way they go, just get rid of the time change. Here are the outcomes, mapped out:
