Ten Best Things to Do at 6:18am

1. Sleep. Sleep is good.
2. Put on a pot of coffee. Not only does coffee contain caffeine, an addictive drug that makes you feel good, but coffee tastes pretty swell too.
3. Listen to the morning traffic report. Yes, you can be amazed at how accidents are treated as normal, and the only big concern is how long it’ll take to get to the airport.
4. Kiss someone. Kissing is as good as sleep.
5. Watch last night’s Quantum Leap. Sci-Fi is now showing the earliest of all episodes, and you can catch up on the olde tyme stories.
6. Contemplate the role of the laugh track in American-made sitcoms, and truly realize the profound impact it has had on the way you react to television.
7. Read. Reading is good, too.
8. Set all of your clocks back an hour so everyone else is working on "Funny Time".
9. Sort through your bills and coupons.
10. Add something big to The Daily Ping. -pm

1. That's what I'm doing at that time!
2. That conflicts with #1.
3. Are you saying there's a damned wreck that's going to make me miss my flight? Dammit! This happens every time!
4. Oh, if only. . .
5. Early morning TV was made for the Three Stooges and The Little Rascals.
6. Does anyone else have the Get a Life DVD? You can watch 3 of the 4 episodes without a laugh track. Instead, you hear the genuine chuckles of crew members.
7. Read? You should be sleeping.
8. 4:20, bro.
9. Pay for your bills with coupons.
10. It's more likely that I'll add something trivial to the Daily Ping.

8. I just recently found out what "4:20" refers to. Or should I say "reefers"? Haha.

Tina--I didn't find out until I was a college freshman and everyone was amazed that I had been ignorant for so long.

I am legitimately ashamed that it took as long as it did for me to learn/figure out what "69" refers to. That one's actually worthwhile.

When I say "just recently" that means I found out on Saturday 3/24. That is pathetic. Where have I been all this time? Definitely not hanging out with the "wake and bake" crowd.

Speaking of "baking", this complete pothead I once knew had never heard the term "getting baked". Now that's what I call stoned. ha ha

It took me a little while to figure out what 4:20 referred to... if it wasn't for ECW, I probably would have never found out. :) It's actually a pretty clever part of that subculture.

Rob -- Now, that's a sad, sad thing. 69? All you have to do is write it down and look at it. :)

Ryan--That was waaaaaay back in 9th grade. The way I figured it out was from some Beavis and Butthead encyclopedia-type book. The entry for "69" was something like: "Huh huh, just look at it." At that moment, it clicked.

I just remembered that the Chunky A track "Dope, the Big Lie" is 4:20 in length. Coincidence? You tell me.

DATE: Friday March 30, 2001 -- 1:29:25PM
Well, I just learned what 4:20 means, because I just looked it up. Anyone who was feeling naive can use me as a worse example.

Things to do at 6:18--
*Check email. Definitely check email.
*Hit snooze one more time because the radio is playing a crappy song.
*Get my ass on the bike and go into work because my home connection is down, and I have to check my email.

69 is what I do at 6:18am

Fezz--Once again you've proven you're in a higher league.

I definately thing Robert is onto something with the Chunky A info of his. Then again, Robert usually is onto something, no matter how trivial it is :)

Matt--Either I'm on to something, or I'm on something.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
