Don't believe what they tell you.
There is no such thing as mountain standard time.

People actually refuse to turn clocks back?

Would make interpretation a little difficult, but way easier to get up for those winter 14ers. And no cars on the road at a very reasonable hour.

I have to manually go into my profile and check/uncheck DST twice a year. You'd think a bulletin board with thousands of sites would be able to do this automatically. At least assume the normal US changeover date, and let the oddballs who are in Arizona and northern Indiana do the change manually, not the majority in the rest of the country.

Yup, it's a pain. You'd think the phpBB developers would at least put a "use board default" setting on the DST profile setting. Then it would just be up to me to change the setting twice a year, but it is what it is for now.

No, not at all. I did too.
Time is a broad subject.

For example, does time exist in the physical world? Is it truly linear?
Or do we merely arrange it linearly in our memory to appease our fragile sense of reality?

Ever notice how time seems to pass so quickly in our dreams, but when we remember the sequence, it seems to span eternity?

And oh, how the season of winter blurs the boundary between waking reality and the dream world...

Since time flies when you're having fun, and drags when you're bored, to maximize your lifespan I suggest never having fun and always surrounding yourself with boring, dimwitted people.
