Piff, time. What a relevant constricted concept.
You all should check out the January special edition of Scientific American titled, "A Matter of Time."

It's worth remembering that all of the streets in Black Rock City are in different time zones.

and different realities.
Dogs are the leaders of the planet. If you see two life forms, one of them’s making a poop, the other one’s carrying it for him, who would you assume is in charge?

I vote to abolish time entirely, since it's an arbitrary illusory concept.

I haven't adjusted to the time change yet..soon I hope. I want to start to enjoying it! 8) .
Sometimes I'm confused by what I think is really obvious. But what I think is really obvious obviously isn't obvious.

All the jet lag without the high cost of airfare. Just pretend you flew to Europe overnight. ;)

You save time during the spring/summer because there's so much of it. Then you spend it during the fall/winter when there isn't as much of it.

Or am I missing something?

What I have never understood is, if the day is an hour too long in the winter, and an hour too short in the summer, why can't we split the difference, spring forward a half hour, and be done with the whole cockamamie business once and for all. :twisted:
