    Well there's something called seasonal affective disorder, where people get depressed without sunlight. People can feel instantly energized when exposed to lots of light (sunbox). It seems reasonable that if you can feel instantly better, you can feel instantly worse.

    Around here, people get shot at night, so no more walking for me.
    Oy. Poor Spongey.

    I'm reading all of this and wondering if some of the problem isn't social conditioning (or possibly natural). After all it is always said as "what shall I do today?" with a link to doing things whilst the sun is up. Ergo at night you can do nothing about what troubles you... perhaps indicating that those who find the night depressing should spend more of the day sorting stuff out so they can enjoy the evenings?

    Anyhow personally I found that I'm a night owl overall with my favourite time being in and around the witching hour. Oddly I also enjoyed midday in Vegas though.... I shall stick to my favourite answer and just climb back on this fence.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?
