I'm wondering what to do about [http://www.hrwiki.org/index.php?title=Happy_Hallow-day&oldid=380950 this edit]. I hear the point, especially interesting given that the whole 'toon is about trick-or-treating in the daylight. (The best Wikipedia link, btw, is [[Wikipedia:Daylight_Savings_Time#Daylight_Saving_for_Halloween|this]].) I wanted to rewrite it, though, since the words "has been speculated" in an article give me the jibblies. BUT... If expanded, it really wants more to be a Real-World Ref. about the proposition. And I'm not sure it has a strong case to make as one. Thoughts? —[[User:AbdiViklas|AbdiViklas]] 02:27, 2 November 2006 (UTC)

:If you want to edit it, go right ahead- although I see that a similar fact has already been STUFFed and declininated. I meant it only as a side note to the remark about how TBC said the sun rose an hour before it actually did (supporting evidence, perhaps?) As for "has been speculated", I was just in a bureaucratic mood (or something like that.) By all means, edit if you want. That's what Wiki is for.

::I removed it. Next year, the sun will rise an hour ''later'' than this year (two hours later than shown in the toon), not earlier. — [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 02:44, 2 November 2006 (UTC)

:::I used timeanddate.com to come up with the remark about sunrise, and using the same source, I have noticed that at 8:13 PM next Halloween, it is still going to be dark under normal circumstances, as seen.  (At least in Atlanta...can't imagine TBC using some other time zone.)  It will have reached astronomical [[Wikipedia:Twilight|Twilight]], i.e. more-or-less total darkness, a few minutes before 8:13 PM in [http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/astronomy.html?n=25&month=10&year=2007&obj=sun&afl=-13&day=1  2007].  I think the whole daytime thing was just a change of pace for a Halloween cartoon, personally. -- [[User:Frickinsellout|Frickinsellout]] 11:21, 2 November 2006 (UTC)
