How cool would it be..

..to be a chronobiologist, and use phrases like 'rhythmic human' and words like 'zeitstorer'?

In case you really are wondering, read this.

For some odd reason, we ended up talking about hypothetical psycho-surgery today at work. What if we could make a diagnosis, point a little laser pen at a particular spot on the brain, zap a few cells, cure Bipolar, and go home for tea. Would psychiatry still be fun? Probably not..

In a separate incident, I discover this after a month of nightfloat. Nightshifts are carcinogenic, or so they think. Good thing OTC melatonin is cheap. I like that line at the end of the article, though..'Just get a dark night's sleep.'

Amen.
