Virtual Bloodlust

I seem to be sleeping too much these days. That may or may not be a good thing. What happens is I fall asleep after coming home from work, wake up at midnight, do stuff and go to sleep again some time between 2 and 3 am. Perhaps that makes up for not sleeping enough over the weekend. How much sleep do I need anyway? Let's check the web...

According to Neuroscience for Kids, topping the list of sleep-addicts are brown bats, giant armadillos, opossums and pythons, all of which sleep for 18 hours or more a day. What I'm surprised at are cows, sheep, horses, donkeys, elephants and giraffes, all of which sleep for under 4 hours a day. What do they do all night long? As for humans, it varies by age from 16 hours at infancy to 5.5 hours, with 8 hours being normal for an adult. The chart doesn't say anything about humans attending college though. :)

I found the Kill Everyone Project some time back through a Georger's non-LJ journal. Don't worry, it's only virtual. They also have lots of other games and humor, and some stuff in Finnish that I don't understand.
