    Why are you on so late/early

    I have a lot on my mind and thought I could drown out the world via the web. I see that there are 20 or so others here just poking around. I guess since there are a lot of over-seas (non-US) people here that may have something to do with it. Maybe Ill buy an iPod while im wasting time....

    A typical day for me usually begins at 3 or 4 a.m. and this is where I spend several hours before directing my attention to other things. Now I just remembered that I want to post a message in an existing thread dealing with noise cancelling headphones.

    I think any Kiwis will beat me but at the moment, I'm up the latest. It's only 10:45pm but it's 10:45pm on Sunday. Everybody else is up early this morning. Soon it will be Monday and you'll all be a day behind again.

    Monday = day off. :) Hence I also care. The kiwis don't really count, there's more of them here then there. (Just kidding, but the rivalry has to be kept alive)

    Sorry, I just don't get the point of wondering why other forum members are on late.

    I just don't think it's any of our business, maybe they want to be? :rolleyes:

    Hey, but that's just me. :)

    Yeah, I have Monday and Thursday off, today is "clean up this dump of a flat day." I think it's kinda cool, seeing people starting the day you're just about to finish.Yeah, those damned kiwis.... ps, use "fafafa" instead of "White" - then it's really invisible.

    It's going to be "catch up on all the reading I was supposed to do over the weekend for uni day" here. Yeah, the whole time zone thing is cool, though kinda trippy at the same time.

    Will do! I used to do it all the time, but I just got lazy. :eek: ;)

    Community forums are all about being connected and reaching out to others to share views and solicit advice concerning computer related and personal issues, etc. It may not be a primary concern of anyone else what I or others do at 4 a.m., but is it any worse than asking what your favorite brand of soap or toothpaste is? Anything within reason is acceptable within the MR community area.

    That's actually what I was thinking, but my brain chose to make the less intelligent response. :eek:

    Sharing is caring!

    now that it is almost 930 am, I think it would just be a waste of a day to try and sleep. i have been awake for nearly 40hrs at this point, maybe im just learning to go without sleep?

    that international dateline is a trippy concept...

    It's the illusion of possession, and therefore materialistic.

    Enlightened ones can send me their time in small envelopes to show their dedication to a pure life.
