Really? Who'd'a ever thunk that!

Okay...some days things just strike you as "Duh! Someone actually paid you to come up with that, huh?"

I was riding up to my office in the elevator and we have these screens that display little news tidbits in the elevators. Well, I looked up and the screen had the following helpful tidbit:

Springing Forward Easily

Researchers have shown that one of the ways to decrease the stress on your body when the Spring time change comes is to begin going to bed and waking up earlier in the week prior to the time change.

Well, duh! I'm sure some university charged several hundred thousand dollars for a piece of information I could have doled out for free. What idiots...

Seriously, if that job is hiring, count me in, I'm full of tid-bits!

I'd take that job, too! In fact, I can make up random stuff if necessary!

Okay, I'll play "dum-bah" today, How is that going to help me? I still get the same amount of sleep...

Tina said...

Ha ha.. I can NEVER go to bed earlier... I try and try but it just doesn't happen.

I can't WAIT to get back to post pictures and tell stories. I'm sure I'll be a bit of zombie so that'll be fun.

Have a great week!

Ok, Where Was I? said...

When I hear stupid stuff like that I'm always ticked that I don't have that job. I want something I can do at home, and that's definitely something that would be super easy.

Maybe I don't get it, but is that hour THAT big of a deal? I can't imagine preparing for it. Talk about stress.

That's like the study that was done at some high-and-mighty university that found that men are *gasp* attracted to women with long legs and big boobs.

NO! It can't be!

Ya know...it usually takes me a good week or so to bounce back from the "Spring Forward" trauma. Not sure why but it really does a number on me.
