    I think there should be a law making five day

    weekends mandatory and daylight savings time illegal. That bullshit seriously cut into my weekend time.

    Its because we just have way too much fun during the weekends so are then bored for the rest of the week. I'd never believe they were only two days long, more like half an hour long. But one must cope.
