Every now and then, I read post here regarding
'I have a daytime job..'
'My job during the day..'
'I am a programmer at sunrise..'

I'd like to say..
'I am a developer in the morning and a superhero at night...'

We'll seriously, do any other ranchers really have other jobs at night?

My night-time job is researching the effects of getting various amounts and different qualities of sleep. I've been working on it for 40+ years, and hope to continue researching for another 50 or so...

..I wish scientist would find out the secret to go against sleep, so that we wont spend 1/3 of our lives sleeping...

that's a whole lot of stuff than the work in the morning..

Super Like!

I guess there really is a night time job!
