[Blatsy: "Hey, Dr. Marloon, what ar you working on?" Marloon: "Fixing Daylight Savings time with Daylight _Shaving_ Time"] [Blatsy: "Daylght Shaving Time?" Marloon: "Yes! You see, the biggest problem with Daylight Savings Time is the date always sneaks up on you. You never remember it until after it happens, and then you're late or early. And why does it switch over at 1AM? Ludicrous!"] [Marloon: "But with Daylight _Shaving_ Time, we slowly shave away at the time difference, adding or removing a simple 19.72603 seconds after midnight each night, except - of course - the extra day of a leap year!"] [Blatsy: "Wouldn't it be easier to just do away with Daylight Savings Time altogether?" Marloon: "In theory, but in practice, I'm not sure I could get everyone on board with that big of a change."]


[The Tinmanhat from WebToon asks: "What's Sandy's story?"] [Sandy: "Oh, jeepers. My story? There's not much to say, but - Oh, where to start?"] [Sandy: "Well, I grew up in Ludburrow County. I loved my mother, father, and my older sister, Miranda. The four of us were all exceptionally close. Growing up, I loved quilting, baking, going to church, doing puzzles, spending time in the park with my girlfriends, Coral and Shelly - we actually pierced each other's ears and that's a whole story in itself. My first kiss was Todd Greely on April 3 1956 at a movie. I remember the kiss p-fectly, but for the life of me can't remember t- movie! I dated Andy Beck my freshman year of high school and was also on the tennis team. Oh, and throughout all of that I was participating in state fair baking competitions, and had just -tarted gardening, when I was hit by a --- -fter leaving Coral's surprise birthday!"] [Sandy: "Hmm. I feel like I left some things out, I'll be right back. Let me grab my diaries!"]


[Blatsy: "Hey, Dr. Marloon, what are you working on?" Marloon: "It's my greatest challenge yet. Creating _Fluid Time_!"] [Blatsy: "Fluid time?" Marloon: "Yes! You see, humans built an imprecise means of measuring time, using the sun. Because the Earth is tilted, unless you're at the equator, sunrise and sunset are at _different times_!"] [Marloon: "But with _Fluid Time_ sunrise and sunset are _always 6AM and 6PM! The duration of an _hour_ just expands and compresses throughout the year, with the most extreme fluctuations at either pole."] [Blatsy: "Wouldn't that just cause more confusion?" Marloon: "Presently, but give it a few fluid hours, and it'll make sense."]"]
