Blog on the Run: Reloaded

Why my kids need to go the heck to sleep when I tell them to:

Because if they don’t go to sleep, then I can’t go to sleep. And if that happens, then according to science, I can’t be held responsible for what happens:

The next time your boss scolds you for low production and claims that as the reason for not giving you a well-deserved raise, she may not be unfair. She may be sleepy.

A new study shows that when people, in this case college students, are sleepy they are more likely to think about how events could have turned out differently and ponder how situations could have been better. Depending on the outcome, they may blame others and even seek revenge.

Oh, well, I probably already threw away my shot at Father of the Year anyway.
