My favorite quote from a National Post story on Islamic headgear:

In 1981, Abol-Hassan Bani-Sadr, the first president of the Islamic Republic, announced that “scientific research had shown that women’s hair emitted rays that drove men insane.”

I have to agree with Catherine on the futility of snooze alarms. I’ve never understood how someone could lull themselves into sleeping 7 minutes longer, but then I also don’t understand people who set their clocks ahead in order to be not late. I’m not capable of fooling myself like that.

As for snooze alarms in particular, if you can get up later and still make it where you need to go on time, just set the clock later. If you happen to awaken before the alarm, there’s no harm done. If you sleep until the alarm goes off, you know you need to move it, like right now. Maybe if I were someone who required 45 minutes and two cups of coffee in the morning before I could leave my door, the snooze alarm concept would make more sense to me…
