The weekend has been entertaining also for Anonymous.
On Saturday they defaced the website ussc.gov of the US Sentencing Commission. By Sunday the US government had republished the website, just for Anonymous to deface it again. All this in protest against the persecution of Aaron Swartz, and other hacktivists. It seems, Anonymous has access to various government sites, they announced to leak embarrassing government data.
How was my weekend? Excellent. With one flaw and I would like to ask a question:.
I know, the world isn’t black and white. Sometimes you get up early, and sometimes you stay up late. But generally speaking, are you more of an early bird?
If you are, do you have friends calling you after let’s say 20:00 h?
Here’s why I am asking.
I am a night owl. To me nightlife is more interesting then the early morning hours. In my humble opinion there is no civilized life before 9:00 in the morning.
And that is even more true on weekends. Usually my day/night does not end before 2:00 or 3:00 AM. Naturally, then I love to sleep in. Have the first coffee in bed. Start the day slowly. Seriously, what could be missed on a Sunday morning? Hell, they don’t even serve drinks before noon in this city.
And I never had problems with kids. Either they are night owls like me. Or they enjoyed having Sunday mornings to themselves without supervision and chores. Usually they were building blanket and pillow forts, preparing food, playing, reading, watching TV and what not. The kids knew, unless there is at least a liter of blood, or limps cut off, you do not disturb me before 12:00 h.
Yet, adult early birds are different. They keep calling on Sunday mornings. Usually the conversation starts something like this:
“Surely you are up by now, here is why I am calling …”
While my brain is forming a murder plan, I usual reply with:
“And this could not wait ’til afternoon?”
Now I ask you, Early Birds, why does that keep happening? Are you up by six and after four hours of doing I don’t know what, you are bored? Or do you secretly envy night owls, and take pleasure in ruining our Sunday morning?
There are people, whom I have been telling for ages:
“Please, do not call me in the morning.”
Mostly this is answered with an indignant:
“But it is past 9:00 already!!!!!!”
Here is a note to all Early Birds:
Let me be clear on this one:
I would not dream of calling an early bird in the late hours, after 20:00 h.
And I wonder, are there night owls who do?
If you are an early bird, do you get your good night sleep spoiled by night owls calling at 23:00 h or midnight?
Seriously, I would like to know, whether we night owls are as obnoxious as early birds.
Thanks for your help!
