Annoying Body Clocks by Shlong on 2001-02-13 02:55:54

My body is so finely tuned in to my daily routine that even when I am on annual leave from work, it still wakes me up about 10 seconds before 6:30. This is so pissing annoying, especially when your constantly out on the piss. I hereby, launch an internation protest against body clocks, and employ all those genome scientists to isolate the respoonsible gene, and make it possible to attatch an on off switch to it.

  I concur... however, you'll have to talk to your circadian sleep cycle control center for best results. Good luck!

  I was once all talk of circadian rhythm, but now I see today in a newsprint fray, my night is coloured head-ache grey, don't wake me with so much, Daysleeper. Yes, that's right, I am, and have been for many weekdays now, living out a recent R.E.M. smash. Ignore the basic day/night principles and start to reject convention. Rebel against regular time ideas, have 2 days and nights every 24 hours each 12 hours long, call them 'Dark Monday' and 'Light Monday' for example. Pioneer the 12 day week. I gotta sleep.

  I think i must have made my body clock guilty by creating this topic, as i did infact sleep in till 12 noon today. Fucking brilliant if you ask me.

  oh -- I lived in Arizona for six years and the one thing I LOVED about it was their non-involvement in the Daylight Savings game... So, rather than force the body into bogus 'time' constraints, you just go with the natural flow of the actual change-of-seasons. Easier and probably healthier on the old physical temple... But there IS a rumor circulating around the U.S. that 'they' might vote to eliminate Daylight Savings nationwide -- yea! Sign me, Slipping into my own Time Zone

  Arizona really need to observe DST during the summer between April and October. To assure that they'll have a good taste of having daylight/twilight later in the evening if the government allow to use DST which means still on the MST. However, since Arizona do not observe DST which means they are on California time (PST) will get dark early and California will still have daylight a little while longer. If Arizonas were smart enough, they can tell the local government to move the clock 1 hour foward and still be on MST, not on PST. The Indian Reservation do observe daylight savings is on MST and the rest of the state is on PST. You may want to check on www.sunrisesunset.com and most of USA have daylight after 8pm. Best if the people in the state of Arizona to persuade the government or vote.

  Is this daylight algebra? Aargh! And daylight after 8pm? No....its dark already, and its 16:48. Although being in Norwich, its also 1648.

  Speaking of body clocks, I recently saw a nice mantle-sized Venus de Milo with a timepiece imbedded in her abdomen.

  We were having this conversation the other day in the pub, i suppose it's kinda sod's law involoved too but, here goes! If you wake up naturally before your alarm goes off, say about half an hour, but feel really awake and ready to get up even though it's not, so you roll over and fall abck asleep. But why is it impossible to get out of bed when your alarm goes off and it is actually time to get up! I hate mornings for that!
