One who labors at night and sleeps in the day.
Randall was first and correct with:
As I understand it, a lychobite is a person that works and does most of their stuff at night and sleeps during the day. They're nocturnal people. Or something...
I guess I used to be a lychnobite at one time in my life: worked in a factory on the graveyard shift. Slept all day, got up shortly before sundown and worked all night. We loved it at the time: no 'suits' running around at work making things difficult for everybody.
Alan J said:
Works by night, sleeps during the say.
one who sleeps by day and works by night
We used to call a lychnobite a shift worker: Someone who works at night and sleeps during the day.
Sunny, cold and blue skies yesterday and today, before a 4-day atmospheric river moves in. Flood advisories from today through next Wednesday. Maybe I should get pontoons for my Outback?

Joe S answered:
I'd like to make light of this, but I can't, you see, because I'm a lychnobite. Well, I'm a semi-lychnobite now. See, a lychnobite is one who stays up all night, maybe working, maybe not, and sleeps all day. Maybe not all day, but 8 hours anyway. Now days I don't stay up all night, but I seldom go to bed before 3:00 am. I've tried to break out but I've been unsuccessful so far, but I don't stay up all night anymore. Just most of the night. It's ingrained.
Click here: Mickey Marcus - Wikipedia Just watched "Cast a Giant Shadow" with Kirk Douglas as Mickey Marcus/ Mike Stone. Pretty close to factual, and probably a project of passion for Douglas. Excellent watch.
...The 'younger generations' start making fun of your music, ha! Did any of your
esteemed readers happen to see "The Late, Late Show w/ James Corden" Wed. night,
with Jim Parsons as a guest (also the lovely America Fererra)? James & Jim created
an hilarious spoof of one of my favorite rock songs of all time, "Dust In The Wind"
by Kansas! I found it on YouTube the next day and am recommending it to everyone I
can think of. It's less than 3 min. long, so most folks can handle it. I didn't know
Jim Parsons could play the violin(?) as well as being so damn funny! Anyway, these
younger folks just don't get what constitutes 'good' music, sigh...

January 8 will mark what would have been the 70th birthday of David Bowie, who died in 2016. To honor the iconic musician, a new walking tour will begin in London on Sunday, while a Brixton concert will mark the start of a series of global shows honoring the artist.
Sunday will mark the launch of a new walking tour visiting spots in Bowie's hometown of Brixton, London. The two-hour guided tour, organized in conjunction with the Lambeth Council, promises to be "an all-encompassing journey from birth to death" and will include anecdotes from the artist's life.
Leading the tours will be lifelong Bowie fan and musician Nick Stephenson, who, guitar in hand, will perform songs including "Starman," "Heroes" and "Life on Mars" over the course of the tour and encourages others to sing along.
A type of tree that thrives in soggy soil from Alaska to Northern California and is valued for its commercial and cultural uses could become a noticeable casualty of climate warming over the next 50 years, an independent study has concluded.
Yellow cedar, named for its distinctive yellow wood, already is under consideration for federal listing as a threatened or endangered species.
The study published in the journal Global Change Biology found death due to root freeze on 7 percent of the tree's range, including areas where it's most prolific. It cited snow-cover loss that led to colder soil.
Additional mortality is likely as the climate warms, researchers said.
By 2070, winter temperatures in about 50 percent of the areas now suitable for yellow cedar are expected to rise and transition from snow to more rain, according to the study.
Those who spend a lot of time at the White House, like CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller, may have noticed something missing Wednesday from the White House grounds.
The playset installed in March 2009 for the Obama children, Malia and Sasha, has been removed. Sasha Obama was just eight years old when her father took office, and Malia was 10 years of age.
A White House official told Knoller that the playset had been offered to the Trumps for the president-elect's son, Barron, who is 10 years old, as well as for his young grandchildren, but they passed on the offer. The official says the playset has been donated "to a local organization serving those in need."
The playset, outfitted with swings, a ladder a small climbing wall, stood a few yards down the path from the Oval Office. Mr. Obama passed it every time he walked to or from Marine One on the South Lawn. It was positioned right behind where the president and Vice President Biden were chatting Wednesday.

Such holes are formed when the water temperature in the clouds is below freezing but the water, in a supercooled state, has not frozen yet due to the lack of ice nucleation.

Sears announced today that it has agreed to sell the Craftsman brand to Stanley Black & Decker after controlling the iconic name in tools for 90 years. Stanley Black & Decker, which produces DeWalt tools as well, plans to expand the number of stores selling Craftsman, as only 10 percent of Craftsman products are currently sold in stores other than Sears, according to the Associated Press . Sears will continue to sell Craftsman tools as well.
Sears has been struggling for years, with both its revenue and stock value dropping over the past 12 months. The department store also announced today that it will be closing 150 of its 1,500 stores across the Americas.
The move is an attempt by Sears Holding Corp. to inject cash into the flagging company. Stanley is purchasing the Craftsman brand for about $900 million total, according to the AP. The terms of the sale include $525 million to be paid this year when the deal closes, $250 million after the third year, and Sears will also receive a percentage of Stanley's Craftsman sales for 15 years. After that time, Sears will start paying Stanley a percentage of its own Craftsman sales.
The sale is truly the end of an era, as both Sears and Craftsman have been associated with American manufacturing and craftsmanship for almost a century. The tool brand and the store that sells it are practically synonymous.
A transgender man sued a Roman Catholic hospital on Thursday, saying it cited religion in refusing to allow his surgeon to perform a hysterectomy as part of his sex transition.
Jionni Conforti's sex and gender discrimination lawsuit comes as new regulations hailed as groundbreaking anti-discrimination protections for transgender people are under legal attack from religious groups.
Conforti had scheduled the surgery at St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center in Paterson in 2015. He says a hospital administrator told him the procedure to remove his uterus couldn't be done because it was a "Catholic hospital."
The hospital said Thursday it follows ethical and religious directives from the U.S. Conference of Bishops in making decisions about care and treatment. The directives say procedures judged "morally wrong" by the church don't have to be performed.
The lawsuit comes less than a week after a federal judge in Texas ordered a halt to new U.S. Health and Human Services regulations that had been set to go into effect Jan. 1 to bar certain forms of transgender discrimination by doctors, hospitals and insurers.
Japan recalled its ambassador to South Korea on Friday to protest the placing of a statue symbolising victims of Japanese wartime sex slavery outside its consulate in the city of Busan last month.
In a move likely to reignite a feud over the so-called "comfort women", Japan's chief government spokesman Yoshihide Suga also announced that Japan is ordering home its consul-general in Busan and suspending discussions over a Japan-South Korea currency swap.
Mainstream historians say up to 200,000 women, mostly from Korea but also other parts of Asia including China, were forced to work in Japanese military brothels during World War II.
The plight of the women is a hugely emotional issue that has marred relations between the two Asian neighbours for decades and which, for many South Koreans, symbolises the abuses of Japan's 1910-45 colonial rule over the Korean peninsula.
The statue is a copy of one that sits across the road from the Japanese embassy in Seoul and that for more than five years has been a rallying point for supporters of the few surviving South Korean former sex slaves.
An iceberg measuring about 1,930 square miles, one of the 10 largest-ever recorded and considered to be nearly twice the size of Rhode Island state or roughly the size of Delaware, is reportedly ready to break away from Antarctica, according to scientists.
Scientists monitoring the condition of the 350-meter( about 1148.29 feet) thick Larsen C ice shelf - the fourth-largest Antarctic ice shelf located in Western Antarctica that holds back the flow of glaciers that feed into it - say that only 20 kilometers (about 12.4 miles) of ice is holding the iceberg from floating away, according to the BBC .
Swansea-based researchers contend that if the iceberg breaks away, it could cause major instability in the Larsen C ice shelf and may even make the shelf vulnerable to similarly break away.
Last year, researchers from the British Antarctic Survey-funded collaboration Project MIDAS noticed that the shelf, whose neighbors Larsen A and B collapsed in 1995 and 2002 respectively, had a huge and rapidly growing rift.
The rift, which grew by over 18 miles in length between 2011 and 2015, grew another 13.7 miles by October since it was last observed in March 2016. However, the size of the rift began stretching even more in December, where it grew by another 11 miles.

A mountain lion kitten has been struck and killed on a Southern California freeway - the same road where his mother died last month, it was announced Thursday.
The death of the 7-month-old male known as P-52 was announced by the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area.
The Facebook posting said P-52 was recently struck on State Route 118, a freeway in the northwestern corner of the San Fernando Valley. It didn't provide the exact date but said the kitten died only a few miles from where his mother was struck on Dec. 3.
The kitten is one of three offspring of P-39 that were found over the summer in a den in the Santa Susana Mountains north of Los Angeles.
The habitat in and around the Santa Monica Mountains is fragmented and hemmed in by urban sprawl and major highways.
At least 14 mountain lions have perished on roads in the region since 2002, authorities said.
