Today is the first goddamn day of summer 2016 and the longest day of the year in terms of amount of daylight in the Northern Hemisphere -- but not in terms of earliest sunrises (those already occurred before the solstice) or latest sunsets (those occur in the upcoming two weeks).
The summer solstice is at 6:34PM EDT (2234 UTC) today.
Let's get this long, hot, shitty summer started and, thankfully, eventually over.
Summertime used to be fun when I was a child at the Jersey shore. Now it just sucks. Maybe it'll be fun again someday in the future when I'm an old man, if I live to be an old man, and I'm out of shitty Washington, D.C., which abso-frickin'-lutely sucks in the summertime for multiple reasons.
