Rich people sleep better

According to an recent report (American Journal of Epidemiology, June 1st, 2006), sleeping comes easiest and lasts longest for the wealthy, white, and female. Researcher Diane Lauderdale followed the sleep habits of 669 Americans aged 35 to 50 and found that those with yearly income of less than $16,000 spend longer in bed than those making $100,000 or more, but they sleep less (...a lot to worry about), so there is this "Sleep Efficiency" difference between poor people (68%) and rich people (85%).

Well, that's amazing - rich people sleep better, I never would've thought that. Seriously, it's no wonder researchers have trouble getting research grants, if this is the kind of project they waste the money on.

I'm getting a little sleepy just reading about this.

I'm also going to put a comment on the "Overcoming Procrastination" post. I'll get to that in a little bit.
