  2. I'm sure after careful thought Trump and the GOP will do the right thing. Not much chance they'll do the left thing...

  11. Climate change is real and the ramifications are significant. There is no need to exaggerate it. Those who do are also divorcing themselves from science. That's not directed at anyone on this Forum but on the topic of America's divorce from science.
  12. A light hour in one frame during a duration of 45 minutes in another frame. We're all doing it right now.
  13. My thoughts also from the OP's post...only worded much better than I would have,
  14. Without clicking the link...Time Zone Change Syndrome is a real thing. It's also known as jet lag or desynchronosis. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/jet-lag/symptoms-causes/syc-20374027 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jet_lag
