    I think that's part of it, and if you restructured the day so that a large part of society worked late instead, nightowls would probably feel that the quiet night was stolen from them. I know I would.

In some other countries, night markets and just sizeable pockets of city life can be quite active through the night. Another reason perhaps I should consider expatriation...
    I remember the good ol' days in Germany, when buisnesses would shut down at 6:30pm SHARP, and on 2pm on saturdays (required by law), though we now have stores that are open up to 10pm, so you can actually shop on weekdays if you hold a job.

    That's weird that Germany would have such a rule, considering industriousness is a big deal there. Industriousness is part of the reason commerce occurs at all hours in other countries.

    I think the weather also has something to do with it -- I've heard stores in Hawaii stay open later. I would imagine a pleasant balmy breeze and warmth would be conducive to people staying out later which is also what Vegas has going for it.

    I tried going to the beach once in Tampa, FL (okay, technically Clearwater) after 11pm and it was just scary. There was no line of demarcation from the pitch black horizon and the pitch black ocean Scary. It's quite a sight though. Not a soul around. Then I thought there was a shadowy figure walking up behind me so I left. There really was some person of interminable gender and age and ethnicity walking up and down the beach making a weird dragging sound so, hell yeah, I was out of there.

    I'm not positive that my answer is accurate.
    What do you consider dawn?
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    Depends. Lately around 4am. This weekend I'll be going to bed around 8am because I've got work from 12am-8am.

    I'd like to get on a more normal schedule again.

    Recently, around 1:30AM, only because I have to be at school by 6:45AM. In the summers when my schedule is different (Work doesn't start until 9AM), I go to sleep around 3-4AM.

    I'd be curious to know what time people usually wake up.

    For me, 1-2am when I'm a functional nightowl, average 3am when I forget to check myself, and between 2am-8am when I'm mostly nocturnal and somewhat diurnal. If I have "a lot of free time" my bad habits and nocturnal preference really come out full force and I'll routinely sleep when the sun comes up and all the birds are chirping.

    I notice as I get older, I can function easily on less and less sleep
    . I do wonder about my poor brain cells and skin.
    Awesome, something to look forward to!!!

    I don't really have a set bedtime, my circadian rhythm is totally effed up. :/
