Over, over, over, over, over....
During daylight savings time that would require to
set the clock back one hour, if you were to set the clock back 1
hour when the clock hits midnight, then it would be at 11:00 pm
yesterday! Then why doesn't that day repeat over and over again
jax responded with this:
Thats why they make you do it at like 2am
or 4am instead of midnight. Just for the braniacs.
Seb helped out here:
Simply, you don't put the clocks back at
midnight. Traditionally, they go back at 2 or 3am depending on where
you are from. Then again, some countries don't even bother with
daylight savings time at all
brad added this:
because you don't set your clock back at
12:00am your suppose to set it back at 2:00am to avoid that problem
TB believes this:
Daylight Saving Time begins for most of
the United States at 2 a.m. on the first Sunday of April. Time
reverts to standard time at 2 a.m. on the last Sunday of October. In
the U.S., each time zone switches at a different time.
don't worry be happy simply answered with this:
the daylight savings is
at 2 AM so don't worry about it. :-)
amrshalakanidr muttered this:
cause u only do it once a
year!!! u don't go back every time it hits 12...u just do that
once...the next time it hits 12 that is after an hour...u leave it
to progress into 12:01 and so on. simple!
the easy answer is that time does not change at midnight. It
always happens between 2AM and 3AM. Even so, with a truly stupid
question like that, once could ask, "why doesn't time repeat itself
between 2 and 3?" The time passes right by anyway, even if you set
your clock back at 4:15 PM to 3:15 PM.
Todd concluded with this:
In the fall all clocks are set back an
hour. But the clocks go from 1:59 am to 1:00 am, instead of going to
2:00 am. Most people change there clocks before going to bed so most
clocks don't change like this. But clocks that automatically change
(such as the computer clock) change like this. It is very strange to
see let me tell you. So changing the clocks back at midnight isn't
really true. Even if it were true, the clocks would only be set back
once. Changing the clocks back have nothing to do with traveling
back in time. Nice idea though.
