  • Happy Egg Time

    Happy Easter, everyone.

    Personally, I don't believe Jesus ever hatched from an egg; it seems a bit far-fetched, but you're all entitled to your ovo-theistic beliefs, I suppose...

    Bonne Paques.

    Of course, I think it's a couple of days from now, but perhaps you've decided to hit the reactor cooling fluid a bit early this year?

    Besides, what makes you think it wasn't a bio-engineered egg? Or perhaps a gleaming metalic, cross-temporal egg that cracked open to reveal good old Karl G?

    Ecce something or other.

      D'you know, I was just thinking about Sgt Glogauer after I wrote that post. Was it a deliberate image-reference on Steeplechaser's part, or an unconscious one? Probably the former...

      Well it's Good Friday and I ain't working (for money, anyway) so that's a celebration, and I've never been one for strict observance of religious dates.

      Except April 30th Sabbath...Ooopps! :twisted:

      Anyway, what time is it there LSN???? 02:20? Do you ever sleep?

        I think I'll re-read Behold the Man this Easter.

          You make an exception for Walpurgisnacht? Interesting. :lol:

          I think it was around 1 am when I posted that, more or less.

          Yes, I sleep. About 5-6 hours a night, like everyone else.

          I get most of my extracurricular reading done between 12 and 2 am.

            8O Well, if I didn't think I was a slacker before, I certainly do now! I have a sneaking suspicion you may be Superman. :)

            Since cutting chocolate out of my diet (almost) entirely, I don't really have much to celebrate. The only easter eggs I'm interested in come on DVDs, and I have to read about them on the internet. I'm not sure who these people are who find such things (and cheats on computer games), but I'm glad that they're out there and willing to share their discoveries.

            Hey, lets all make an Easter-time pledge to watch Mel Gibson's Passion! Then let's all back-out at the last minute and do something interesting instead!

              I think I must have a sleeping disorder. I need around 10 hours sleep a night. :(

                6-7 hours is optimum. I do about 6, but only four in the summer...something to do with my pineal gland, I expect. I tend to sleep intensely for 20-30 minutes in the late afternoon, which is a rubbish time for anything much else...

                The transient phase/ REM sleep period betwixt full sleep and wakefulness is very productive for creative thought (theta waves)...

                    Laziness takes nine,
                    And wickedness eleven.

                    So I'm somewhere between lazy and wicked? Sounds about right.

                      Perhaps, TM, you're both lazy AND wicked? The best of both worlds, maybe?

                      It's not a big deal, nor is it some mark of distinction, positive or negative to need more or fewer hours of sleep. It varies a lot, I've noticed, from person to person. I've been on this schedule since I was about 13. Damned if I don't get a lot of work done when everyone else is asleep.

                          Oh...perhaps those of us who sleep less will...like, die sooner!

                          Aah!

                            I, too, have noticed this phenomenon over the years. Some astounding ideas show up for work during that phase. Sometimes, they even stand the light of close examination later in the day.

                            The critical intelligence is needed as a filter, it's clear, to shoot down things that "seemed like a good idea at the time."
