11/1    This daylight savings time sucks.  Has anyone tried boycotting it by
        If so, how did it work out?
        \_ Some Asian countries don't have it. Many Asians are smart. Many
           Asian girls are smart and pretty. Therefore it is smart to not
           have daylight savings.                       -asian fetish guy
           \_ Having an entire country that covers the same amount of
              longitude as the U.S. be on the same time zone is the opposite
              of smart.  Wouldn't it be great if the whole U.S. were forced to
              be on the same time zone as Washington, DC?
        \_ By "dalight savings time sucks", do you man that ending daylight
           saving time sucks, and that you want it all year, or do you actually
           hate daylight saving time and want to be on the winter schedule
           all year?
           \_ Not the OP, but I prefer PDT all year.
              \_ I guess I should have been more clear, I like PDT too. -OP
                 \_ Well, I realize that I'm being a pedantic assmonkey about
                    this, but technically you want *more* daylight saving time,
                    not less.  Also, it's daylight "saving" time, not "savings".
                    Anyway, I agree with both you and pp that it should be all
                    year round.
        \_ You could always move to Arizona.
           \_ Or Hawaii
        \_ You probably have more success bribing Ah-nold to change the daylight savings
           for California.
           \_ Except Phoenix.
        \_ You probably have more success bribing Ah-nold to change the
           daylight savings for California.
        \_ (Pls don't shoot the messenger) - the daylight savings time is
           switching to an earlier time (methinks early March?) and will go
           all the way through mid November - beginning 2007. Part of the energy
           bill recently signed by Dubya. On another note, while Europe and Aus-
           tralia observe Daylight Savings Time, their switch date actually
           differ than the U.S. I believe right now the rest of Europe does not
           switch to DST until a week after we do. STFG for details.
           \_ Supposedly this will save the US 100k barrels of oil a day during
              that period.
              \_ NO PDT FOR BIG OIL!  HALLIBURTON!

3/6     When I first joined my company, I got a sign-in bonus which was
        deposited into my savings account the first month. I also got my
        moving fees reimbursed, which was also deposited into my savings
        account a few months later. However, neither entries show up on
        W2 or any other official records (not even ADP). I asked my boss
        if I should talk to someone about this, and he said "don't worry

        I'm looking for something that's not too inconvenient (with tellers

        than BofA and Wells Fargo.
