Night owls are more creative

I read this in Wired today:

Artists, writers, and coders typically fire on all cylinders by crashing near dawn and awakening at the crack of noon. In one study, "evening people" almost universally slam-dunked a standardized creativity test. Their early-bird brethren struggled for passing scores.

I can't even begin to say how much this describes me. The only caveat is that it isn't sustainable. Do it too many days in a row and you will most certainly crash.

Dude, I've been living that schedule for almost 10 years.

I guess that makes me the exception. I laugh in the face of this so-called science!
