"Lark or night owl? Blame your ancestors"

From the BBC:

Our ancestors could be to blame for the wide variety of human sleeping habits, from larks to night owls.

Staggered sleeping patterns would have been an advantage in the distant past, when we lived in groups and needed someone to look out for wild beasts, say researchers.

I've been explaining it this way for years, can I have PhD please?

Can I have a PhD please? Why not try Manchester University: they hand out professorships in economics to former Chancellors of the Exchequer who clearly know nothing about economics.

RM, good idea, but if they did, I'd probably sleep in and miss the ceremony. Thus proving my own thesis.
