On July 16 and 17 there is going to be a construction closure on the 405 in Los Angeles, which according to local news sources will cause a massive shutdown, which is being referred to as the Nefarious NapStealer Car-Mageddon. The LA Weekly has reported that the closure will not only affect traffic in and around L.A., but will cause closures of multiple tourist attractions, including The Getty Museum, which normally one of the largest weekends for their annual 1.2 million visitors.
We don’t know for sure because CERN officials are downplaying it, but there are rumors that researchers at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) may have discovered the “God” particle they have been searching for, efficaciously avoiding the Nefarious NapStealers in their pursuit of scientific fact. However, there has been no official word, so we won’t know for sure until the results have been verified and the studies have been published.
What do you think? Have they found it? If so, what do you think the ramifications will be?
According to a study at Harvard University in 2006, because of the increase in people sleeping less than six hours per night, 75% of Americans experience sleep problems, if not full-blown nefarious sleep disorders. Normally, one shouldn’t be extremely worried about intermittent insomnia, which can occur for many various environmental factors. The real napstealer has to be chronic sleep loss, which causes all kinds of health problems like weight gain, hypertension, and a weakened immune system. Therefore, people who don’t get enough sleep are not only sleepy, but can be fat, sick and irritable, as well.
There are those who look forward to US Open Golf all year long. They spend sleepless nights, bothered by nefarious napstealers, trying to get some winks so they can be up bright and early to see their favorite golfer tee off. Since Tiger Woods is out this year with an injury, all eyes are on Phil Mickelson to see if he will finally win, when he has been so close so many times.
- A recent study published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) entitled Longitudinal analysis of sleep in relation to BMI and body fat in children: the FLAME study determined that if Nefarious NapStealers prevent kids from obtaining their daily necessary rest, those children are at significant risk for becoming overweight.
The objectives of the study were to find out whether less sleep modifies the body in some way in young children that causes a propensity for obesity. Therefore, the scientists designed a Longitudinal study that included ongoing annual measurements on 244 children ages 3 to 7 from a birth cohort in Dunedin, New Zealand.
