Late Nights in TaipeiI always stay up long after midnight in Taipei, trying not to worry.
But a new global survey reveals that I'm not the only one here.
Taiwan polls out at Number 1 in the world for sleepless late nighters: 69% of Taiwanese say they stay up after midnight. The difference is that they also say they get up early in the morning -- something that is against my religion.
Some things we worry about into the wee hours:
- Why are the Australians sleeping earlier and longer than anyone else in the world?
- Why do my students send email asking if the reading assignments are on the midterm test for a literature class?
- Why is mainland China promising to attack Taiwan "only as a last resort" after other measures, when in fact China doesn't have any other measures?
- How is it that everything worth saying has already been said, yet people cannot remember anyone having said anything?
