I just watched V For Vendetta last night, for the first time in about 10 years, and it ended just a little bit after midnight. Did not even think about the date today, but that's an awesome little synchronicity.
An under appreciated movie IMHO.

Massachusetts and Maine are considering ditching DST
I hope it leads to a domino effect, but I wouldn't bet any money on it.

I can't wait for the end of March already. Fuck standard time, fuck winter, fuck the cold, fuck the early nightfall and fuck the earth's retarded axial tilt that is responsible for all this depressing shit.
Ha! That made me chuckle. Sounds like you need to move south and get a job with a more flexible schedule.

One of my sisters lives in Phoenix, and she loves it. She is a real cold hater too. Me? I hate the heat, could never live in Phoenix. As I'm getting older the cold bothers me more than it used to, but my spin is, it is the price I pay for milder, shorter summers (comparatively) and I usually get the bonus on "good" temperatures in the spring and fall.

Have a buddy who lives in Tucson, and he rises with the sun. He basically feels like he can't "wake up" without sunlight. But for me, I worked for years where I either left for work when it was still dark, or came home from work when it was dark and it was never an issue.

Found this:

In Australia: Various states and territories in Australia adopted daylight saving time between 1968 and 1971, but Queensland, the Northern Territory and Western Australia did not do so. In Western Australia, three referendums were held in 1975, 1984 and 1992 on the issue, with daylight saving being rejected each time.

In Sept. 2017 Alberta was looking to have a vote getting rid of it... not clear if they did or not..

I don't necessary doubt you... but I find that puzzling since I have never meet anyone who didn't want to get rid of it. Can you point to ballet results somewhere?

I don't really care if we stick to daylight-saving time or standard time -- JUST FUCKING PICK ONE AND STICK TO IT.

And in case you haven't seen it already, how is this still a thing?

Oh please. "They want to charge for an old game!" There was a demand for the game. No one is twisting your arm. If you don't want to play it, no one is forcing you. As far as the subscription model for any game... they should do the continual updates, fixes, and maintenance free of charge? You know what it takes to support multiple millions of players?

*sheesh* Millennials!

You know how most people have a film they consider a "guilty pleasure"? It's not an especially good film, barely worth watching once, let alone multiple times. But for some reason it strikes this particular person in just the right way, consequently they have watched it many, many times. (Grease 2 is one of mine )

That's kinda how I feel about the D3 story. Yeah, I realize it has major problems and really isn't well done... but for some reason it just doesn't bother me.

So, now it will be free to play... can I play it on a LAN without an Internet connection yet? (not really serious, but had to say it)

*meh*

I went back to WoW just before the current expansion (Legion) started, after having raided through most of Cata. before leaving -- about a 4 year absence. Neither the new expansion or the chance to go back to "classic" really grabs my attention much. I guess it is about time to take another break...

It will be interesting to see how successful/popular "classic" is...

Oh, and for the record -- I am not attempting to criticize Path of Exile. I like the game. And I've certainly given them more money than I have spent on D3, despite having purchased all the expansions.

Okay, yeah -- this last time they had a big content release, but they've been doing these leagues ever 3-4 months since they started four years ago. I guess if they come out with large content releases every 4 years... we'll see.

Oh brother...

I was just listening to NPR, they were discussing recent sexual harassment issues/charges and specifically the latest ones concerning Kevin Spacey. And some clown said (paraphrased), "I think it is likely there will be serious lawsuits against Fox and Disney which could bring those corporations down."

Okay, I am not making any comment about any person's guilt or non-guilt in these cases. However, to think sexual harassment lawsuits will bring down multi-billion dollar corporations shows a serious disconnect from reality.

How come I never see anyone complaining about the 3-4 month "leagues" which Path of Exile has? Maybe I just missed it? Seems to be little difference from what D3 is doing...

And I've read that on average, runners have better joints than the general population (not that that's a very high bar. ).
I would expect that to be true, if running causes joint pain you don't do it. Hence, the people who do run have better joints...
