in reply to When it is dark outside I am happiest to see ...

When I'm in my backyard on my patio I used to love being able to sky watch and see the stars, but then the damn city people put streetlights along my highway after more houses were built around me, and now the additional light pretty much drowns out the sky even on a clear night. #LightPolutionSucks

When I'm out camping I'm happy just not to see eyes glowing in the dark.

And if I'm thumbing my way into North Caroline, I just stare up the road and pray to God I see headlights. :-)

Just another Perl hooker - My clients appreciate that I keep my code clean but my comments dirty.

    I can relate to that. To me, what's most galling about the street and highway lights is that the people who choose what lights to install still continue to choose ones that let light out the sides. I know it's because those types are less expensive, so have a lower up front cost, but they also require more electrical power, so cost more to operate. The lamps that direct the light in a downward cone provide the same ground level illumination with lower power consumption. The operating cost savings cover the difference within few years. After that, it's net spending savings.
