That time of the year is coming up, so if you're area follows Daylight Savings, turn your clocks back by an hour. In honor of this event, Chocoroll submitted a poll for us.

If you wish to suggest poll ideas, go ahead and do so here:
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=3903

Previous Poll Results:
Question: You plan to/will cosplay/dress-up for Halloween this year?
Choices:
Yup, as someone related to Japanese anime / manga / games - votes: 878 (6.9%)
Yeah, but not anything anime-related - votes: 1631 (12.8%)
Nope, but I still got (or will get) tons of candy! - votes: 2024 (15.9%)
Nope, I don't celebrate Halloween - votes: 8228 (64.5%)
There were 12761 total votes.
The poll ended: November 6th 2010

More numbers compared to last year, but the only difference in percentages is that a lot more people got candy this year. Avoid cavities!

Hate DST. But maybe I'm just upset because me clock rolled itself back(which would be an awesome thing if those jerks hadn't changed when it started) and I was late for work on monday.

Someone always tells me, so I don't remember ever being late.
Or early, for that matter.

It came earlier this year in Israel.
Not sure why. Don't care.

I like it. What I don't like is when I need to move it back.
You can feel the difference...

Fall back = +1 hour of sleep.

DST is great in places where it actually has a purpose.
Like changing the time so that you actually get up with the sun and not in darkness.

Or just getting that extra hour of sun to enjoy in the evenings (preferably with a beer, or beverage of choice, in hand).

My dad always knows when Daylight Savings Time occurs EVERY TIME. I wonder if he just looks at a calendar when I'm not there (=_=)

I don't really like time change during this time of the year because after that, days seem so short here around 5pm it's pitch black outside already.
