x the answer is in the article: x
x Jess

Daylight time was adopted by several countries during the First World War to save fuel because it meant the sun stayed up later into the evening.

New York was the first city to adopt it in 1918.


My main point of contention is that these fools think they know what evolution had planned for us. I believe I've read from various sources that ideally, humans were meant to sleep 4-5 hours every few hours or so. Once we left the trees we were nomadic which meant spending a lot of time on our feet, hunting and gathering and sleeping in shorter cycles to keep from getting killed by larger carnivorous animals.

Seems to make more sense than their offhand 9-10 hours statement (where the evidence?) That's just wishful thinking you lazy sods!

x jj_4487 Woohoo, I feel more normal now.

Ideally its 8 hours, but I haven't met anyone who has slept the full 8 hours in a very long time.

x Jess I hate the media.. I think this new statement comes from the fact that they want us to spend our lives asleep. I mean essentially we're all asleep anyway, but they want it to be literal.

*your eyelids are feeling heavier.......*
