    I’m with Rat on this; unless you’re in an emergency-based profession, like police or paramedics, you shouldn’t have to get up before the sun gets up.

    It’s all fun and games until you have to set your alarm for about 4 AM.

    I would start at 4AM when I was working. It is what it is :-)

    Reporting him to the Hague? That sounds a little too much like you’re a liberal-leaning Clinton supporter, Rat. Stephan, why can’t you just make fun of Trump and Hilary equally?

    I used to get up at 3:00 am. Nowadays 9:00 am is early for me.

    All of China only uses one time zone, so depending which part you live in, 6 am might be light or it might still be dark.

    I can confirm that there really is such a thing as 5:30am.

    .

    I call it “bedtime”.

    My solution for having to get up early? Don’t go to bed.

    If you have a PRO account (or even if you don’t), I recommend you log into your account at beta.gocomics.com (before the transition), and check your profile (MY PROFILE in the dropdown menu shown by clicking your avatar). You may be surprised by what’s there (may want to change it, like I did). If you change it, I don’t know that the change will be effective after the transition (may want to check your profile again).

    Before I retired I liked getting up at the crack of Dawn. But my wife was never too keen about sharing our bed with her.

    Although I rarely agree with rat , The worst year I can remember of my 45+ working years was running a construction warehouse & always starting before 6 , sometimes 4:30 or 5 . When I lost the job , I slept for a week before I seriously looked for work again . Now , 15 years later , I still haven’t recovered , But hey , whatever floats your boat , I say .

    He is, however, inhumane…At work at 5:30? So I get to sleep in another 30 minutes? I’m in!

    Your old job, Rat?! So exactly which of your 387 separate employment periods at that cafe would be the “old” one?

    Everyone’s name is now in ALL CAPS! It takes away some of the personality of WoodEye.

    Diligent? How does that apply to someone who is not a morning rat?

    Rat is right as usual. Fortunately I’m retired now. Being old is wonderful thing. I will never have to work again.

    GoComics has become a much better place. I like the new stuff, especially the random button. I could spend all day at this place.

    I agree with Rat. In fact, getting up before daylight is obscene!

    So now I’m PROFILE/2157787. I can’t see all the comics in a single A-Z listing. I have to do an extra click to see comments.

    A fine example of fixing something that wasn’t broken to make it worse.

    I got up at 5:30 to take the train to work. I saw a cop at an accident, probably been up all night working. This just makes me think we all get up at different times. My thanks for ALL that serve♥, Police, Fire, Military, Teachers, etc (don’t forget baristas☺)
