  1. Mebbe. But I think if you get a reasonable amount
    of sleep at a regular time every 24 hours you’re
    golden. It’ the rotating shifts and bump turns that
    take years off your life. Did it for almost 14 years
    and it was like living in jet lag hell.

  2. Back when there was comedy, which died when Will Farrell took over Saturday night live and Johnny Carson exited, there was a reason to be a night owl.
    Now there is none. Nodding off to the 10 o’clock news in bed is the best i can do.

  3. But, Fur, you forgot to add in the factor that you work from your bathtub. That negates any negative effects of staying up all night.

    At least, that’s my learned opinion!

  4. I guess that I’m going to be OK since I am a morning person. I thank my grandfather for that since he was a farmer and was always up before the Sun rose in the morning. And I’m almost always awake by 4:30 – 5 AM in the morning. And sometimes earlier like this morning when I couldn’t sleep any longer just after 3 and turned on TCM and watched an old B&W Ronald Reagan and Errol Flynn World War 2 movie.

  5. How many times have we hoid:
    Coffee is bad for you
    Coffee is OK for you
    Coffee is bad for you
    Coffee is OK for you
    Ya da ya da ya da

    Inquiring minds want to know: Wuz there a grant involved?
    Now wake up and go back to sleep numbskulls!
    Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk

  6. I spent 25 years getting up at 4:30 am. Now I live it up and sometimes stay up til 11pm with rare exceptions even later. But I’ve learned to embrace sleeping in and now sometimes don’t get up til 6am.

  7. from the article: “Unfortunately, the Biobank data only indicated whether someone identified as a morning or evening person, not whether they had a sleep schedule that suited their chronotype. “We know what their preferred time to sleep is, but we have no idea what they were actually doing on a day-to-day basis,””

    how can they make their conclusions when they didn’t collect any data to support it?
    I hope tax dollars weren’t spent on that.

  8. One of the reasons I moved to Australia was to see if my sleep patterns could get in sync with the sun cuz it’s night down there when its day up here.

    It worked for a few days and then I was back to getting to sleep at 4 am.

  9. …I’ve got a great argument against this, and I’ll get to it *yawn*….
    Right after…

  10. Also, how come no ones mentioned Game of Thrones yet? The left is up in arms over what appears to be a a total victory for the Patriarchy at the end of season 8.

    This victory is somewhat marred by the complete absence of bigfoot in the series. A point I have repeatedly made to the annoyance of fans who get all worked up about a show that has witches, zombies and dragons but no bigfoot because as they like to point out…… BIGFOOT ISN’T REAL.

    I love western culture.

  11. I believe this about as much as I believe the myth of the eight-hour sleep, which is to say I don’t believe it. (Some of my best thinking is done before my second sleep.)

    Specifically why I don’t believe it is because, as stated, who the heck knows what some of these people’s lives are like – maybe THAT’S what’s so unhealthy.

  12. for over 40 years I woke up from 3:45 AM to 6:00 AM to be at work from 5:00 AM to 7:00 AM. Never worked a 9-5 job in my life, although there were many times, too numerous to count, where I worked ’til 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, etc., pulled double shifts, even 24/48/72’s during emergencies.

    what was the point again? … oh yeah, now that I’m retired I do more what I did when I was young. I usually go to bed no earlier than 12:30 AM, mostly around 1:30-2 AM, sometimes later, but I wake up around 8-9 AM … sometimes 6’ish to take the dog out.

    … sometimes I take a nap … not sure how any of it fits, other than we do what we need to do & the rest is just a bunch of bullshit
