America's screwy

I happened to be watching ABC World News Tonight on News 24 earlier, which included an article about how teenagers were the most sleep-deprived group:

With most high schools' classes starting at 7:30a.m....

07:30 No wonder American kids are so screwed up.

For the record, in the UK school nominally starts at 09:00 although we had to arrive at 08:45 for registration. It generally finishes some time around 15:20 although some private secondary schools go on to 16:30.

Hey, this probably explains why Americans like coffee so much.

About this entry

Really, it's not their fault. Poor bastards.

I published this entry on 30 March 2005 when I should've been asleep. That means this is pretty old. Beware parachronisms.
