Insomniacs' Rule

I had to invoke the Insomniacs' 4:00am Rule today:

If you don't get to sleep by 4:00am, get up and make a pot of coffee - it's going to be a long day.
Well, maybe it doesn't apply to all insomniacs, but it sure does to me. If I fall asleep after 4:00am, there's not a chance I'll be able to wake up before noon -- and the day will be totally shot.

There are two corollaries to The Rule:

-- Lack of sleep doesn't mean you can skip work.
-- When you're stumbling around the office because you can't see straight, it's time to go home.
Light napping thereafter will be permitted.

So it really is true that most geniuses suffer from insomia? ;)

Well, I don't know about most of 'em, but this one does ;-)
