Ok, so I was being a bit melodramatic.
I finished finals last week and passed everything, so I spent some time this week catching up on some much needed sleep. This was also one of the first weeks when it was predictably warm enough to sleep with my windows wide open. Unfortunately, that meant that I was very rudely awoken by church bells at about 8am Tuesday morning.
As I am laying in my hungover stupor trying to fall back asleep, I started thinking about church bells. It occurred to me that church bells are actually a very unfair thing. I had never really thought about it, but what a clear example of how religion is thrust upon people who might not actually care.
I'm sure that if I climbed up on my roof with a microphone and some loudspeakers every hour and yelled "Wooooo its *time* Milwaukee!!!!!!" for a minute straight, there would be plenty of people calling the police and I'd end up with a noise complaint. If people don't want to hear my completely neutral expression of time keeping, why should I have to hear church bells? What is even the point of church bells anymore, anyways, now that there are clocks everywhere. It's not like we need help knowing the hour.
My brain just kind of died right there, so I'm not gonna go on anymore.
I wonder if there is any way to file a noise complaint against a church...
