Beds in the office

I have always been a firm believer in having beds at the university somewhere. Just somewhere you can go to have a quiet comfortable nap. Like right now I am suffering from a severe food coma and need a nap so I would go have a nice lie down for 30min or so just to catch up and then be ready to go again. 

I know this has been proposed before and one company takes it to the extreme. But seriously, I get tired after lunch and would love a nap. I think there ought to be some more sleep time factored into work. Although, this blog is sending me to sleep right now. Better just to get back in the lab and clean up. Friday is so not fun, until you leave.


  1. How about not imposing crazy hours on students and postdocs? The way postdocs get treated in some places with frack all incentive (except publications) and shit pay (considering the job) really gives me the irks. Why the hell should I work longer hours: because someone else will.

  2. Lol, I heartily agree with you my simian friend. That's why I am keen to go industry.
