Questions of Grave Importance

I don't want to overhype this or anything, but this may be the most important question I've ever blogged about. It's like if Deep Thought came up with Zen koans. Don't ponder it too closely, because it might blow your mind.

So, I get that you're not supposed to feed Mogwai after midnight, but for how long after? I mean, after all, it's always after midnight. You might be able to justify feeding them at midnight, but it's not like you can feed them instantaneously. By the time you set the food down, it's already after midnight.

And what about the time zone? Do Gremlins get jet lag?

I personally would not feed a Mogwai before dawn, just to be safe.

I...I can't even comprehend this fully.

My mind is, as you promised, sufficiently blown.

I used to think they meant not from midnight to dawn, but now I wonder if maybe not between midnight and noon would be safer.

I'm just going to starve my Mogwai from now on I guess. Little furry bastards...

Not as confusing as how a creature that can't even be in the same vicinity as sunlight can be so heavily affected by the Earth's rotation.

Seriously, assexual cave-dwelling mammals have always creeped me out.

Also does it have to be water for budding to occur? Would soda work? What about orange juice? Florida growers claim its like contained sunshine. Help or harm?

Think it's got something to do with the relative position of the sun ... perhaps with the darkness itself?
