Ha. ha. Ha. except not funny to those of us who actually do work out before
work, and volunteer at places like these. If anyone read this as a pissing
contest then you read it entirely wrong. Someone asked a question, and
people answered. CMIWW, but AFAIK nobody here said, "Well I get up earlier
than any of you here and also do 5,000 other things." Some people have
normal schedules, many don't. A lot of tech writers seem to work in the
Silicone Valley, which -- wow, so surprising -- WOULD mean long commute
times! And it would mean that you'd HAVE to get up early to be there at a
respectable hour! Ohmygosh, did someone just use logic?!? Alert the media!

Relax, people. You're getting all up in arms over nothing.
