I'm using postgres 9.2 and got the following column:
start TIMESTAMP(6) WITHOUT TIME ZONE NOT NULL

I need to split that date into two columns on my select:
2015-12-18 = date column
02:40:00 = time column
select start::date as date_column start::time as time_column from ....
BUT, you really gotta watch out for type conversions around timestamp
WITHOUT time zone, as most conversions expect TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE,
which internally are stored in UTC but are converted from/to
CLIENT_TIMEZONE on input output. so timestamp without time zone can get
converted to timestamp with time zone, then converted to date or time,
and get all messed up.
