Workers distracted by email and phone calls suffer a fall in IQ more than twice that found in marijuana smokers, new research has claimed. (Hmmm.... perhaps they should also include LJ checking in that :p)

"Infomania" Worse Than Marijuana (BBC News On-Line; Friday 22nd April 2005)

Mice have been placed in a state of near suspended animation, raising the possibility that hibernation could one day be induced in humans. (I bet those people who paid tens of thousands of dollars to have their heads removed and put into the deep freeze are going to be mighty pissed off when they wake up and find other able-bodied from their own time still wandering around because of this new technique! My mind also wanders to the use of 'hibernation' for both space exploration and also criminal justice....Mind you it seems we may end up smelling like rotten eggs!! :p)

Judging by the woman I was stuck behind today - walking along the VERY NARROW train platform trying to send a text- then I'd say yes, her IQ level had dropped significantly enough to not notice a) that she was wandering very close to the edge and b) the queue of cross people trying to get past her.
