    I should be happy right now , I'll be seeing him in exactly 2 weeks today [​IMG]
    That's a bright side to all this distance we've been having !

    well i don't think the're neccessary. i mean people have this idea in their heads that when the sun is in a certain place in the sky it should be a certain time on the clock, but that's just arbitrary custom. there's no reason we couldn't just all use 'zulu' time and let the time of day in relation to it fall where it may.

    people who were day people would still be day people and people who were night people would still be night people, but night and day would have nothing to do with what it said on your clock, unless you happened to live in what is now the time zone of grennich england, or wherever else they decided to make it. but really so what.

    and for that matter, why not go base 16 and devide the day into 16 hexichrons, each 90 of our current minuites, or one and a half of our current hours long. then for consistencey devide these into 16 units or minihex's that work out to i forget exactly but something like four or five, and a half, of our current minuetes long. these intern devided into microhexs, something like a quarter of a second, and so on.

    the whole measurement of time thing is all pretty arbetrary. entropy and duration and things like that do actualy exist, but what we call the time and whey we do is something that just evolved into being the way it is for no absolutely neccessary reason.

    oh there was a good reason for creating standards, and the time zones are because people seem to want certain numbers on the clock to corrispond with certain times of day which they wouldn't otherwise, but that particular standard choosen, is really totaly arbitrary.

    Time zones are cool. Without them we would have a flat Earth and that would be impossible in our universe with the scientific laws we now apply.

    Miserable? Please lady. I'm sorry you're so miserable you feel the need to judge how content I am in my life. Did I hurt your feelings when I said I didn't give a fuck whether or not you got to tell your boyfriend goodnight? Need a tissue?
