“In th' mornin' sow thy seed, and in th' evenin' withhold not thine hand: fer thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good. Truly th' light be sweet, and a pleasant thin' it be fer th' eyes t' behold th' sun: But if a lubber live many years, and rejoice in them all; yet let that scurvey dog remember th' days o' darkness; fer they shall be many. All that cometh be vanity.”

In 1910, th' average adult be still sleepin' nine t' ten hours a night. Now th' average adult be lucky t' get a full seven hours a night. Most o' us don’t. Those numbers add up t' an extra five hundred wakin' hours a year. In nature, we would take a caulk 4,370 hours out o' a possible 8,760, or half o' our lives. Eighty years ago, we be down t' 3,395 hours. Now we be lucky t' get a measly 2,555. If nature keeps score, and we bet Th' winsome lass does, that means we only get t' live about half as long. We may have doubled that figure wi' surgery and antibiotics, but think how long we could live if we slept, too.

Everyone’s tried t' remove a screw without a screwdriver; a task smartly becomes impossible that otherwise would be trivial.”
