Random Thoughts of the Day

Why doesn't Fluxbox have shading on mousewheel scroll? (Yes I know there's a hack patch somewhere)

Why is the eight hour work day so commonplace? Why not six, or nine, or five? And why is it 9-5 for so many (or around this time)? I'm thinking that a hell of a lot of gasoline would be saved if there was no rush hour traffic. Think of all those idling engines. Do most people really need to be at work at a specific time for their respective corporations to function, or is it just a bunch of ridiculous overhead and stupid idiots running the place?

And don't use the argument that all fossil fuels will be used up anyway, so it doesn't matter. The rate at which fuel is burned does matter, and does affect our health.

I'm tired.
