Discussion on: Why you should be a "Night Owl"

I think early risers are better because they rise early. The sun rise early too, and it does a great deal of stuff, like keeping us alive. It's quite nice, and I think early risers enlighten their peers. After all, it's a question of discipline and will and habits and personal purpose, like I have, and you don't.

I think as well that OOP is better than FP, that space is better than tab, and that static type checking is better than dynamic type checking.

It's quite scientifically proved, but I lost the link to the studies. It's behind a paywall, anyway.

It's a bit presumptuous to assume you have any characteristics I don't because of our circadian rhythms being different.

There have been GREAT people who were night owls. Obama, Carl Jung...

We also have to consider perhaps on the reasons we might have "night owls". Our very distant ancestors were nocturnal. Perhaps we have vestigial night owls because of that.

What I regret the most with Internet is the difficulty to be ironic.

I'm sorry. My post was a total joke. I don't think anybody is better because they work the morning. It's a false debate which has no sense to me.

What I think is: learn to know how you work and don't listen to anybody telling you how to do stuff without experimenting for yourself.

This! lol.

Yes, that was my goal with the post. Whatever works for anyone is exactly what they should be doing!

I mean, I knew spaces over tabs just had to be a joke ;)
