Vampire's in a new light

I was reading the comics the other day and saw one that was particularly funny or at least thought provoking. The crux of the comic was: if moonlight is simply sunlight reflected by the moon (which it is as the moon is not a light source in and of itself), why can vampires come out at night when they are killed by sunlight?? Better yet, since the story of vampires have been around for eons, how did this fairly basic thought escape movie makers and book authors? I won't be able to watch another vampire movie in the same light.........get it? :-)

Know what's worse than a 7 a.m. meeting? Nothing. Ugh. I'm still trying to recover.


Things I'm grateful for:
#58 Electric blankets. Very nice when it's this cold out.
#59 That two years ago, the government didn't let us have control over our retirement benefits. They would be worth 40% less now! Boy was I pushing for that too. Huh.......
#60 That I don't live in Iran. Good Lord. Those people are crazy. And what about the guy who crawled out of his grave??

What if it is a cloudy day? Or night? Could they come out then?

What if they wore a reflective suit like they do for extra-vehicular missions in space?

Interesting questions....hmmmon a cloudy night or new moon night, they should be able to come out. The sun's rays are too strong though so even a cloudy day is too light for them.

A space suit huh? Good question. As long as the visor is tinted, then I think they are fine.

And if you stay up until midnight and THEN get up at 6, then you can cast stones at my glass house.
