I thought most men wanted to be jumped by Ally?

There's a thought.

Ally McBeal, mugger.

Er, not the kind of jumping I had in mind.

Still, the idea of some wraith-like being trying to mug someone amuses me.

Ally, NOT Ally McBeal. Ally McBeal has never been anything other than an
abomination. Don't get me started on that piece of shit.

See, this is where things get kind of amusing for me, since I don't really watch television, and have to rely upon what I overhear.

I've never heard of a show called 'Ally', but I've heard of 'Ally McBeal', so I figured you guys were talking about that.

Kind of gave me an amusing series of images.

You wouln't want to meet her in a dark Ally.

I dunno, I'd prefer that to a well-lit Ally. Preferably with a bag over her head...

QueensRyche nailed this pretty well in their song "Silent Lucidity" There is no such problem as "dreaming too much", in fact it is quite the opposite - people are not dreaming enough, and thus wake up feeling tired and exhausted after an otherwise "full night's sleep"

I *love* the lucid dreams. They are just as real as me sitting here tapping out a message on a keyboard right now.

The colors, smells, temperatures, everything, are all real. Makes one wonder at times... ...then the fricking alarm clock announces it's presence...

I had surgery for my sleep apnea - not a lot of fun for the first few weeks, but I feel much better on less sleep that I did pre-surgery. Mine was pretty bad, and it was also a possible cause for my brother's death (although the real cause was undetermined).

The real problem with sleep problems in the US is the corporate mindset. I'm all behind the SubGenius Foundation on that one.

Naps for 20 mins mid day would be a great thing!

I tend to just shut my eyes and pretend I'm thinking deep thoughts.

'twould be nice if American culture could adopt the tradition of a mid-day "siesta."

Or if our jobs were simply less stressful, overall.

Is our stress from our jobs, or from the stupidity of the people we deal with?
There are many parts of my job which are stressful, yet I still enjoy.

Some forms of stress are okay, but when you don't have enough people to do the mountain of work that needs to be done in a short amount of time, that leads to negative stress. And with all the various mergers and such, a *lot* of stress seems to flow in this country.

I personally think that hi-tech companies should have a hammock room, so that people can take an hour after lunch to recharge their batteries, and be more effective in the afternoon.

especially in places that give you a nice heavy lunch (most Israeli hi-tech companies do)

A HAMMOCK room!! That would be the best thing *ever*.

Just envisioning some nice top-floor room with a skylight and nice, colorful Mexican net hammocks slung all around. Mmmmmyeahhhh.

At IBM (when I worked for Tivoli for about a year), we had a guy in the QA team who would take about 12-20 minutes for a 'siesta' (as he put it.. he was from central america).

I did an internship at AT&T back in 1993 ... there was a guy who had set up an entire mini-bedroom INSIDE THE CEILING. Everything was there ... a mattress, a small box serving as a dresser, an alarm clock ... he was, of course, fired when they discovered that he had been sleeping through most of his shifts.

They discovered it when the ceiling collapsed one day. :)

It figures that it wasn't a load-bearing ceiling.
