Things Come and Things Go

Today’s collection of news chum addresses two areas of interest to me: origin stories, and reports of things disappearing. Origin stories are interesting because we don’t often know where some popular things come from; many come from new or emerging trends. Disappearance stories, on the other hand, are often reflective or indicative — again — of trends in society.

  1. The article that proposes to move the US to two time zones argues that time zones exist for coordination. It’s a shame we don’t have some sort of universal coordinated time that we could all use and just dispense with time zones entirely. Oh wait…
    Forget about changing the US to two time zones. We only need one; time is just a notation system. There’s nothing magical about the work day starting at 8 and ending at 5 (or whatever). We’ll learn to get used to getting up at 13:00 UTC.
