It's only August.

but already it's too dark to play outside by 8pm, while the dawn light is still doing it's thing before 6am.

dawn could be 7 without any inconvenience, giving us playtime till 9 for another month.

can we can we can we can we can we can we can we can we can we can we can we can we can we can we can we can we can we can we can we can we can we can we can we can we?

and don't give me any shit about it being dark in winter, of course it's dark in winter, it's winter.
