Hi flirtybee,

I see you're into science. I hear on talk radio that we need to keep science out of our schools. It corrupts our commitment to superstition.

I keep a pitcher of entropy right here at my desk. Oh damn! Now I've spilled it again!

I will need to remember that GMT is NINE time zones later than San Diego, eight if you want to include Daylight Savings Time. For example, right now it's 4:40 on Sunday in San Diego Pacific Daylight Time, however in London it's more than half an hour past midnight. So, if I post something at, say, 8:00 pm, it's four in the morning in London, and nearly everyone is asleep. That means that if I think someone in England is sitting at their computer at 4:00 am, either I'm nuts or they're enduring a terrible bout of insomnia.

Pretty much all around the globe I think
