So, apparently sleepy people blame everyone else for everything.  There have been numerous reports about how USians (I don’t really like the term “Americans” and it’s longer too) are sleep deprived.  The pharmaceutical industry seems pretty convinced that we’re a nation of sleep-deprived zombies (and may be making us such too).  It’s pretty well known that sleep deprivation leads to irritability and moodiness.  But apparently, sleep deprivation also causes you think “counterfactually.”  It causes people to ponder how things could have been better and may cause them to be more prone blaming other and revenge.  This…obviously could be a problem.  Um…I think I’m rather prone to blaming other people.  I mean, I blame myself too…I just blame other people more.  Obviously, I’m generally (read: always) correct about everything.  Obviously.

Anyway, it seems to me that a form of anger management could just be sleeping more.  Of course, people can just say that they’ll go to bed earlier and such, but does it ever really happen?  Probably not.  It would be pretty hard to enforce an earlier bed time anyway.  So, how about napping (but not zoymbing).  A lot of us are working or at school in the middle of the day, what if we just declared the hour after lunch as an hour for napping?  You wouldn’t be allowed to do work and such then.  Maybe Spain and the Latin cultures have something there.  They’re pretty well known for taking siestas in the middle of the day.  Some Asian countries are also known to encourage employees to take a short nap after lunch.  Perhaps the US should do that too.  I think I could get behind that.  But nothing too extreme.  I mean, I don’t think work should somehow cause me to feel lazy.  And I normally have a lot of stuff to do after work too, so I wouldn’t want to get out of work too late.

Hmm…all this talk of sleep deprivation and napping is making me sleepy.  Maybe I’ll go take a nap.  Excuse me…
