#894 – Quittin

It’s funny how our sense of time is so malleable. When there is a time change and I look at a clock that hasn’t been updated, it’s easy to believe that it’s an hour earlier or later than reality. A clock has to be off by 5 or 6 hours for it to be obviously wrong to me. I guess when you spend most of your time indoors under unchanging lighting, the clock is your only guide.

Also, things to write on and mail to other people are available now!

    If it only worked that way…

    Looks like Biff will be time traveling with his co-workers…cuz nobody is stayin’ on a Friday, the clock rules!

  3. baughbe says:

    Arugh! We are ruled by the network computer clock. Does Biff do I.T.?

    A year was far longer when I was younger, and now that I’m older, they go by far too quickly. Where’s that middle ground?

  5. Just_Some_Dude says:

    Being in my senior year, I often daydream about controlling time. I’d freeze everything to stay in high school forever (or maybe just to make the weekends last a decade, I dunno)

  6. Mike says:

    If only that worked in real life.

    Happy Friday the Thirteenth everyone!

  7. Steriema says:

    A year is quickly over. But a day can last so long!

  8. MaskedMan says:

    Many people ‘flex work’ on Fridays ’round here. That’s when I get my best work done – it feels like I’m working on a Saturday – with another work-free saturday coming right behind it!

    If only it worked like that on my old job… we were ruled by a bell set up on an internal clock. So no matter what you did to the clocks on the line, it wasn’t time to leave ’till that last bell rang.

    This made me laugh because I felt like I had successfully went back in time when I set my clock back this year.
    My Biff comic! 😀

    At the community college I used to attend, there was a rec room where all the gamers would congregate. The place apparently never sprung for the cash for a clock system like most High Schools have, where all the clocks adhere to the same time and none of them can be tampered with. This rec room’s clock was always DELIBERATELY set around 20-30 minutes ahead. It bugged me one time, so I got up and changed it, and one dude came up behind me and changed it right back. Turns out everyone decided to do that so they could look up at the clock after a round of Halo, Smash Bros., or whatever, panic that they were late for class, and dash to their classroom. Gotta say, it did work, provided the people in the rec room actually WANTED to go to class…

    baughbe: I think Biff is an engineer.

  14. Ziriath says:

    Civil engineer or architect, I think.

  15. Ziriath says:

    I haven’t recognized the time change from summer to winter time, cos I had to draw groundplans almost all the night:-/ So I missed the time travel:’-(

  16. Karadan says:

    A friend of mine was actually working when the time change happened, so she had to work an extra hour and didn’t get paid for it at all 🙁

  17. Random says:

    Silly Biff, time travel is only possible through the internet, ( or vacuum cleaners) not a clock :D.

  18. Madness says:

    Win win win win win win win.

  19. sco3tt says:

    I don’t usually take the time to notice the time change since I time travel most of the time anyhow.

  20. adara says:

    remember the time a few comics back when he used a compass (the kind with a needle on one point and a pencil on the other) as a slingshot to send email? what job could he have where he would have one lying around?

  21. Matt Lee says:

    Wouldn’t any day be good for time travel? Really you could just travel to friday, right?

  22. Radical Edward says:

    I remember how I was an intern at a print shop for the school district I was in (I was held back for 3 years in 12th grade) and an hour would go by fast. Too fast to me…But I guess it was only one hour.
