#18: Need Sleep

I’m sorry. I promise by the next time I post I will have slept. I promise. And then I can stop talking about it. What can I say? I always want what I can’t have! =)

On the topic of sleep deprivation I found a cool website that supposedly calculates how sleep deprived you are. I don’t know if it’s scientifically proved or even accurate, but it makes you feel pretty good about yourself when you realize: Wow! I am so sleep deprived that I need to sleep 27 hours a day for a month to make it up! And I’m still living a normal life!

(Yea…the 27-hours-a-day-thing is what makes me question the calculator’s accuracy. Maybe the people who made it are from Mercury? The length of a day on Mercury is equal to 58.65 earth days. But the length of a year on Mercury is only 88 earth days. Wow! they have short years there. Oh wait! I forgot, no one lives on Mercury. Okay, anyways…)

So here is the sleep calculator link:


They also tell you how to do the math yourself if you so desire. I have not tried this because it goes against my philosophy that you should, in general, do things the easy way.

So, how sleep deprived are you?
