Our time don't change till the 4th of November I think. 

I actually just found out that it was pushed back a week the other day. It didn't even dawn on me that this happened but every year I wondered why kids were trick or treating in the daylight. Now it all makes sense. lol

Didn't we use to be on par with the UK (I'm in the US) in terms of daylight savings time?

They changed all this back in 2007. Before this, I believe they were done on the same day. I still don't understand why they changed it to begin with. Stupid government always messing with us.

I never understood why daylight savings time was a thing. Like I get it for farmers but what about everyone else? Who enjoys getting up in the morning and going to work in the dark? 

There is more to it than just farming but I really couldn't tell you what exactly it is about without googling it and I can't be bothered 😅

I imagine I will still be playing RDR2 regularly a week later when the 4th rolls around in the US.  I’m looking forward to getting that extra hour in on RDR2 on the second weekend.

During the Summer, I wake up early enough to go to work in the dark, come home in the daylight.  Winter time, I go to the work in the dark and come home in the dark.  That is what it is all about, missing with me so the days blur together.  :)

Didn't think of it like that. Good point. We still get an extra hour. I don't know if I will be using it to catch up on sleep or play RDR2. I guess it depends how tired I am that night lol

Because of my timezone I get to play it at 9pm on the 25th. As the official release date is the 26th my gf was convinced I was getting it earlier than everyone else and said about me giving spoilers away to the rest of the world. Bless.

I'm in the same boat.  Gamestop is on this trend right now of releasing the AAA titles at 8PM the night before official release.  No joke, there were about 500 people lined up last night when I came out of Chipotle with the fam, and my kids asked, "Dad, why are all those people in line?"

Me: "It's for a video game.  Black Ops dropped today for people who preorded."

Wife: "Your dad used to be one of 'those people'".

Me: "Your dad IS going to be one of those people in two weeks."

Son #1: "Is that for Red Dead 2?"

Me: "Yep.  And what's Dad going to do first when he plays?"

Son #1 & Son #2: "Shoot the deer and sell the hide".

Me: "That's right.  A man's gotta eat."

Wife: "You are so weird."

Me: "You should be happy, I'll be too busy playing this to paw at you all night"
