The intense sun where we live is nice for making electricity and vitamin D and all, but my blood mostly came from cloudy climes in Europe. No sunburn at night and other soothing experiences all around when the stars can be seen.

I like the dark too, and was always a night person. Being a musician for many years solidified it even more, getting home at 4:30 in the morning.

I really liked the pre-China Virus days when our local grocery stores and Walmart stores stayed open for 24 hours. My girlfriend at the time, also a musician and a night person, and I enjoyed jumping in the truck and doing a Walmart or grocery store trip at 2 or 3 AM. No crowds to fight, no lines to wait in. Kinda weird how the stores never went back to 24 hours, not around here anyways.

Where the sun sets fast
As long as I have access to a light source, I love the dark to bits. Ever since I first purchased a set of blackout curtains, I can only sleep in a very dark room or if I have very dark eye covers. even during waking hours, sometimes it's just nice to disable my sight and rely on other senses. It's a different experience and relieves any eye strain I may be feeling.

Unfortunately for me, I'm on the southern hemisphere, so nighttime at this time of year is preciously scarce. Especially bad this year with El Niño, we've been having heat wave after heat wave with none of the season's typical rainstorms (and consequent power outages) in sight, so no severely overcast days that justify flashlight usage.

I don't like having artificial lights in the background when I go to sleep. I've slept enough when it's light out that sleeping in the dark is a nice luxury for me. It's also natural. We didn't have light at night unless it was firelight or candle light for the last couple thousands of years. (Unless you live by the Northern Lights.) Bright light at night is unnatural and works against our bodies sleep patterns and messes up our hormones, tricking it into thinking we're living in a perpetual autumn, which floods your body with ghrelin and cortisol (to name a few) which make you gain fat and slow down your metabolism.

Thank you. Now I have an excuse for being fat. It's Monocrom's fault, for shining his flashlight in my windows. Oooooh, someone is in trouble with my missus! You better run fasssst, Monocrom! :p:crackup:

Being overweight affects your sleep negatively, and having bad sleep affects your weight. It's a vicious cycle. Pretty much only thing to fix it is starve yourself until your body converts it all into fuel.
