    The amount of sleep needed is genetically determined with overly by cultural and learned factors. Regardless, though, it is extremely rare for people to do well with less. Two weeks of less than six hours per night results in physiological fatigue equal to 48 hours of total sleep deprivation. Going less than 7 hours is generally inadvisable.

    Thanks for providing support to my statement. A link would be handy too, dude.

    And that first sentence is nonsense.

    A cat died in this thread and Paul is bullying people about sleep. Will the horrors never stop?

    I bought an even more overpriced than usual cup of of coffee at Starbucks because they could only make the type I wanted on the the $11,000 machine. It tasted really good so now I may not be able to go back to standard drip :(

    I walked into my local coffee shop, none of my friends were there, so I had to awkwardly walk out.

    My five year old hijacked my iPad because, in her words, "it was the first one I found". So I'm having to use her iPad mini, which doesn't suit my fat fingers.

    A. That's because there's a typo. It should read "overlay" not "overly"

    B. There is no "link." What you want though, is the article titled "The cumulative cost of additional wakefulness: dose–response effects on neurobehavioral functions and sleep physiology from chronic sleep restriction and total sleep deprivation" in Volume 26, Issue 2 of the journal Sleep.

    C. While you're looking in issue 6 of that same journal and volume you may note another article called "Predictors of objective sleep tendency in the general population" you'll find that the risk of falling asleep on controlled tests triples to almost 75% if one sleeps less than 6.75 hours a night.

    I'm sorry if you prefer your macho self-assurance to the pretty broad body of literature about chronic sleep deprivation, or if you've failed to realize that perhaps your perception of your own fatigue can become just as skewed as all your other cognitive processes. But if we're talking about the general case of an adult, Technicolor was quite correct in the assertion that 7 hours is the broadly accepted minimum sleep requirement.

    I'd say what my first world problem is, but it's a spoiler to a major TV show

    My first world problem is that out of the 4 or 5 random JCers I sent friend requests to tonight, I'm not entirely sure I picked ones I know. Just figured it was time to expand upon the 10 or so I already had.

    Social networking is hard.

    Before I read all that, let me go and check my give-a-**** meter.


    Edit: hmm, it's at zero. But, as soon as it rises, I'll come back read the post, I promise.

    Years of bleach. It is dead. I need to grow it out so I can kill it properly again.

    That sucks. But you'll enjoy the ease of getting ready.

    Yes, that is true. There are benefits but then there's the being told you look like a 12 year old boy.

    I want a specific pic as background on my phone, but the person on the photo is dressed in red, so he doesn't match the pink and sparkly cover.

    My coffee mug is just warm enough so as to be slightly uncomfortable to hold.

    Whenever I search for gifs to post in the REBELLION thread I never find the one I'm looking for and I lose the urge to post at all.

    That leaves me feeling frustrated and annoyed.

    Thank His Noodliness for this thread.

    I received news that someone I hate might be dying. Turns out it was a misunderstanding. [face_sigh]
