Mods: I feel like this belongs here, but if it doesn't please feel free and move it!
Standardized time sucks, and I honestly loathe it. What's that quote.. "I wouldn't own a watch except I'd miss all my appointments."? Honestly it's
just awful. I quite frequently have to explain to people that I'm not on US east coast time, but rather China time.
I don't know why I've just always been a longer sleeper, a huge fan of napping, a night owl- the whole 'kit n'caboodle' . I typically don't sleep
often, am plagued by insomnia- or at least that's the only time my mind has quiet time.
Anyway, I was watching the preview to Men in Black 3 and I was trying to remember that scene from the first one about the 37 hour days-
Jay: Zed, don't you guys ever get any sleep around here?
Zed: The twins keep us on Centaurian time, standard thirty-seven hour day. In a few months, you'll get used to it. Or you'll have a psychotic
So I've decide to change the world, or in the least change my world. I think I'll try to start practicing this time system. I was never really
confortable with the idea of my movements being syncronized with the masses. Way to much $#!% in life is planned, defined, marked off.
I want to be free, that's all. The idea is pretty fascinating. Right now we (east coast) get's about 15 hours of daylight and 9 hours of darkness in a
standard "world" day. 37 hours is only 13 hours more that that which isn't to bad.
So a 37 hour day would be 15 hours of daylight, followed by 9 hours of darkness, followed by another 13 of daylight. Which basically comes down to
being up for 28 hours, not too hard to accomplish- I've done it before.
Currently I'm at 21 hours, which means I'll be heading to bed at 28:00 (In case you didn't realize I'm pretty much making this up as I go..
still hyper thanks to all the coffee, not even remotely tired. Hopefully the rest of the days are this easy.
Maybe I'll even develop my own clock, ah, getting ahead of myself once again.
