Timeless Blogging

One summer, one of my housemates worked in a lab where he conducted sleep-related experiments. He'd keep people up for ridiculous periods of time, and not allow them any way of telling what time it was (hence: no watches or timepieces, no TV, VCR clocks presumably all unset with that annoying blinking "00:00" timestamp). Freaky. I would feel so unanchored without any sense of time.

Having said all that, I thought the timestamps on the blog posts were messy, which is why I got rid of them. Blogger sets the timestamp based on when you first create the post, not publication time, and since my style is to leave about a half-dozen posts hanging in draft format before I get around to tuning them up, the time was hardly accurate.
