I finally did the math...

...and figured that if I sleep eight hours a day, and I live to be 72, I will have spent 24 years of my life asleep. If I can get by with six hours of sleep and I live to be 72, I will only have spent 18 years of my life asleep. That's six extra years of consciousness, which seems pretty significant when you look at it like that.

But I'm not convinced that consciousness is absolutely the best part of being alive and I don' t think I could live to be 72 if I only got six hours of sleep at night--or that I would want to.

Surly Underlings in Girly Underthings

I don't really have anything to say on the subject: it's just some words that've been floating around in my head for the last day or so.

Consider it a form of Google abuse. The only place in the world where these words appear in exactly this order.

Mostly, I don't think...

...there's a whole lot wrong with the massive proliferation of online porn, but I guess it can be a little dehumanizing. For most people it's still a big deal to expose themselves to the entire world (I guess: I don't actually know any nude internet models--or, at least, not that I know of), but there are so many other naked people out there that it doesn't necessarily make an impact on anyone who sees them.

I guess blogging is sort of the same thing in a slightly less intimate way, and when compared to the horrible indifference of the Universe in general, it doesn't amount to much.
