Do you sometimes struggle to stay awake and alert at work on Mondays? Or any day? Or have you ever found your head starting to fall forward in another, unusual place? The good news is you’re not alone. A poll of 2,000 adults found that 22% have actually drifted off while at work. Others admitted to dozing off in nightclubs or bars (12%), or even at a wedding (5%). Why are these people so tired? The top answers to why they didn’t get enough sleep were: overthinking (57%), followed by being too hot or cold, and working too hard. Other excuses included noisy neighbors, an uncomfortable bed, nightmares and money worries.

that it may improve users’ empathy, or the ability to understand or
share the feelings of another person. Brain imaging showed that the
marijuana users’ brains were more connected and functional in the
region linked to empathy, compared to non-users. The findings, from
researchers in Mexico, were published in the Journal of Neuroscience
Research, and builds upon research that shows marijuana use activates
certain areas of the brain.

According to Consumer Reports, the top things that people are dreading this holiday season are crowds and lines.
It’s scientifically proven: being in love makes you a less productive person.
Oxford University Press has done what Merriam-Webster almost did a week ago: named “rizz” its word of the year. The term is widely used by Generation Z to describe someone’s ability to attract or seduce another person. Oxford said rizz topped “Swiftie” (an enthusiastic fan of Taylor Swift), “situationship” (an informal romantic or sexual relationship) and “prompt” (an instruction given to an AI program) in the annual decision by experts at the publisher of the Oxford English Dictionary. Rizz comes from the middle of the word charisma, and can be used as a verb, as in to “rizz up,” or chat someone up.

Is anyone in your house or office playing “Whamageddon”? Or, perhaps more accurately, WAS anyone playing it? Apparently Whamageddon is a game that takes place each holiday season in which players try to avoid hearing ‘Last Christmas’ by Wham! from Dec. 1 through Christmas Eve. And what if you DO accidentally hear the festive harmonies of Mssrs. Michael and Ridgeley? The game’s official Wikipedia entry says that if a player hears the song between Dec. 1 and 24 at midnight, they are out of the game and have to post “#Whamageddon” on social media to indicate that they have lost. The exceptions are that players are allowed to listen to remixes and cover versions of the song. LINK: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whamageddon
