Study Finds Geeks Benefit From Afternoon Nap

Harvard School of Public Health released a study today on the benefits of napping. The scientists did the study in Greece and actually found that G-r-eeks who took regular naps were 37 per cent less likely to die of heart disease. However, I believe if the scientists were to do a similar study on geeks during the hours after lunch, they would conclude that they are benefiting from their afternoon snooze as well.

Some companies permit naps to be taken on the job, and many employees actually say it makes them more productive. Other companies don’t allow naps; however, employees have learned how to sleep with their eyes open and focused intently on the computer.

Since heart disease is still America’s number one killer (number two killer in America is celebrityvirus: over-exposure to celebrities), I am sure this study will be conducted in various technology companies to verify my conclusion that afternoon naps also benefit geeks.

    I thought I had a celebrity induced allergy, I had no idea it was a virus.

    Hmmm. That means there might someday be a vaccine. Now that’s a cause worth contributing to.

    Let me sleep on it.

    Yes, they are working on a vaccine I think they have to get hair from Britney Spears, and a drop a blood from Brad and Angelina’s baby…
