sunset is before 18:00 now: rise, 5:27; set, 17:43. Must be because I am from Toronto, of which I am not fond, except that WE DO NOT WASTE ALL OUR SUNLIGHT BEFORE WE WAKE (rise, 7:02; set, 19:20).
But who'd want another hour of sunlight after work to take your kids to the park? No, it's much more fun in Tokyo to pray for sunset so your boss might deign to let you go, although neither you nor he did shit today but sit on your ass praying for another asset bubble. This is only going to get worse by the daylight savings switch in early
November, when Toronto will grab back an hour in the evening, but Tokyo
won't, because it doesn't do daylight savings (showing once again a crack in its modernity).
Toronto is on the same latitude as Sapporo in Japan's north; and Tokyo is on the same latitude as LA and Washington: but I have never had so little sunlight I could use in the winter as in Tokyo. I am going to have to start cycling to and from work to get some sunlight, or someone's going to get knifed.
