Today's Times featured a front-page story about high-flying traders--you know, the type who destroyed the world economy a few years back--who get up in the wee small hours of the morning to get a jump on the day's trading: They don't want to sleep through the opening bells in the euro zone, you see. I imagine some of these folks probably alter their sleep cycles to keep pace with markets in Asia.
Does it make me a bad person that I take some satisfaction in knowing that the sleep debt these guys--and they are mostly guys--rack up will probably lead to a great deal of personal suffering and, perhaps, premature death?
Turn off your Bloomberg terminals! Go to sleep! Maybe you'll dream of a way to do something productive with your lives!
