Default Falling Back in the November 4th Chat Thread



Most of you will be changing your clocks thanks to time change (except Arizona and Hawaii). If you can't remember if you add an hour or take one away, just remember, Spring Forward, Fall Back. Don't forget to change the batteries in the smoke detectors also.

Here are some interesting things I found:
Contrary to popular belief, DST was not invented by Benjamin Franklin, although he did satirically and anonymously propose the idea to Parisians 1784. Eventually proposed and lobbied for by an Englishman, William Wilmett, in 1905, it was actually the Germans and their WWI allies that began using it first. The US was the last to follow suit.

Apparently, the correct terminology is "Daylight Saving Time", not Daylight SavingS Time, as we've been happily calling it all these years.


What is the primary reasons that 02:00 in the morning was set as that changeover time in the United States?
Less disruption and most would be changed over by daybreak. Lawmakers believed that it was very desirable for the entire continental U.S. to have made the change by the start of the normal working day. Many computer and electronic systems now are able to make the adjustment without human intervention.

Which country was the first to officially adopt a system of daylight saving time?
Germany. Germany adopted DST in April 1916, with Great Britain following May 1916. Currently about 70 countries around the world observe daylight saving time in some form.

Of the 48 contiguous US States, name the one that does not observe Daylight Saving Time (Summer Time)?
Arizona . Arizona observes Mountain Standard Time. It does not change its clocks, so its time is the same as Pacific Daylight Time during the summer. Parts of Indiana used not to use Daylight Savings Time.
