On Time

I prefer to go to sleep around 3 and wake up around noon or noon-thirty. This allows me to see all good or at least culturally relevant television at night, and judge how long I've been awake and working on whatever numerical number hour it is.

Honestly, I have no idea why anyone but agricultural engineers and solor-energy developers work in the day. You wake up between 5 and 7 and go to sleep between 10 and 12? What is that? Those numbers make no sense. Better to sleep when the numbers run out and start getting small again, then wake up when the clock resets at 1. Your day should start at 1.

Who the hell decided that the day starts in literally the exact middle of the night before? I know it wasn't the French, because they tried to introduce "Decimal Time" during their Revolution and make a day of 10 hours of 100 minutes of 100 seconds, but they nixed that with the introduction of the Metric system two years later in 1795, probably because no one was able to count seconds one-fifth faster.
