"You know that thing that a lot of people do because it's virtually impossible to live any other way unless you have tons of money? This study linked it to worse health outcomes and we're going to start acting like it's the worst thing ever and start concern-trolling people who do it."

That is barf-worthy, yeah. :/

Ahhhh the 'bad science writing becomes the source of even worse moralizing and an excuse to punch down' effect?

Yeah, they can feel free to stick that where the sun don't shine. I'll even help.

I have never heard this.

On the other hand, going by my parents' reactions when they're unable to reach me by phone on a Saturday morning, it is clearly a position which some people would espouse, even if only subconsciously.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one completely baffled by this. I honestly have no clue what's going on or what you're even referring to, so, glad to be out of the loop there.

I am taking some WILD guesses for other people's benefit here, so please feel free to correct me if wrong Azz!

I'm assuming that this is referring to the study referenced here:


One group had their sleep restricted for the whole study, while the other was able to catch up at the weekend.

Both groups snacked more at night, gained weight, and showed signs of deteriorating metabolic health, compared to the start of the study.


Research has shown that too little sleep can increase the risk of a range of health problems, including obesity and type-2 diabetes, in part by boosting the urge to snack at night and by decreasing insulin sensitivity, or the ability of the body to regulate blood sugar.

I'm guessing that this is being spun by some media publications as "these things are similar to the effects of smoking therefore sleep deprivation is like smoking therefore if you sleep in at the weekends you are clearly sleep deprived therefore sleeping in at the weekends is SMOKING"?

Am I close, Azz?

Yes, because an optional harmful practice and a necessary function for survival are entirely comparable things such that the necessary thing is as bad or worse than the optimal harmful thing.

Is there a line for punching this person? Is it too late to get in the line?
