Yeah, some of his arctic roads would be too frozen over to drive on.

I was all set to bump the 2018 DST thread just to note clocks go ahead in under two weeks. :bigass:

But the thread was locked. I’m sure someone will start a new one, but I won’t be that someone.

I'd already planned on it, when it gets closer to the actual date.  :D

I have a long list of stupid shit I get worked up over (see, e.g. pissing Calvins), but I have no idea how it is that someone can have such strong feelings about DST.

DST is a stupid, outdated concept.

That's good, because the upcoming time change is not 2018 DST—neither its beginning nor its end.

I will say that bandit957 has made it nigh impossible to think of a topic too outlandish to be started on here.

Read the thread title.

Your comment has nothing to do with what I used that smiley to indicate.

I had no idea that people felt so strongly about DST until I joined this forum. I’ve never seen it as anything more than a minor inconvenience at most.

Depends on what side of the time zone you are.  Chances are the further east you are, the more favorable you find DST.  Except Alaska where everyone likely doesn't - since they're 2 timezones west of their natural time.

I will say that bandit957 has made it nigh impossible to think of a topic too outlandish to be started on here.

Of course, one can always come with something like...
How many toddlers' foreskins have you pulled back? (Yeah, a bit over the top but guaranteed not to surface)

... which is borderline between what is legal and what is not. Note that I don't tolerate child rape (and really, any kind of rape).

I don't know if bandit957 creates on topic threads, so I throw the following:
Somerset Freeway to be built after all, I-95 set to be realigned
AARoads topics in 2019
froggie's US highway plan approved by AASHTO (IDK if I posted this before)
[Insert state here] objects to new US highways assigned to it (as a follow up to the previous one)

"Football", a quite ambiguous word for me. I assume "association" football instead of "American" football.

All times Eastern unless DST is in force only in the USA (Central in that case to preserve "6 hours behind my actual time") or otherwise noted

Wow, careful with that edge there. You might cut someone.

The hell it is.  Either you're doing it for a medically necessary reason (which is legal), or it's molestation (which is not).  There's no gray area.
