No, reading "Kaycee Nicole" threads causes an inability to spell proper names. This has been scientifically proven.

I think a more accurate summary of the article would be that going without enough sleep causes brain shrinkage.

Well it could explain the behavior of the stranger in the seat next to you when he tells you about his life flying across the ocean and back and forth and back and forth and...

Upsetting the biological clock is never fun. I take one week (four times a year) to recover from my across-six-time-zones jet lag. I'll admit to being a dim bastard during that time.

The rest of the time I just won't admit it--being dim that is.
