We should turn our clocks back every 2 occasions per annum... that way we would potentially live longer! Unlike turning the clock forward and resulting in that eventual meeting with the grim reaper becoming so much nearer!!!
Oh, it's nearly halloween for goodness sake - lighten up (in advance of your comments!)

Time doesn't actually exist - it is a man-made concept - a necessity to record events.

It brings order to the world as we know it. It even mattered in days long ago but then time ruled in a different way.

We shouldn’t put the clocks backwards and forwards IMO.
Keep our clocks on GMT.
In the Summer on BST it stays light far too late, and when we put the clocks back in October we are plunged into darkness.
Let the dark nights gradually creep up on us and the light of Spring ease in.

JR of course time exists. The sun and moon regulate days , nights and the tides. Anyway I was awake at 4.45 so I had the disruption of my body clock but put the clocks back

I think you will find that time doesn't actually exist; it only exists to our brainwashing. Change exists! Everything constantly changes. The light and dark is purely the result of the earth's rotation and seasons are governed by the earth's tilt and its travel around the sun. Everything is here and now... it just continually changes - and as I first remarked... time was invented for convenience!

Some people do not use a clock for time. They get up when it becomes light and retire when its gone dark.

Call it what you will but people, now as well as many years back, needed to have order their lives. And always have.

Yes, 'time' is a necessity now but it is purely a concept for convenience. I'm the same person I was 50 years ago but change has taken place - that's all. We are born, we live, we die. As for time it's here - just here; everything that has 'passed' is actually still here. Scientists can prove it.

Hello Kath,
I'm John Harris. If you went to the end of your street and turned left on Valiant to Viscount Road, I'd have been facing you just to the left - number 21. Ashcrofts were my nextdoor neighbours. Other nearby friends or at least acquaintances - Billy Harrison, Brian Wood, Steven Summers, Barry Allen, Martin Hickey, Tony Sharkey, Stephen Tilley, Eric Highton. Les Pennington, Gerald Wynn... oh, I could go on!!!
