(News) Email/Texting worse than Marijuana Use and Man makes Mice Hibernate

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)
