Late People are Morons

just, JUST as I suspected.

On time people are smarter.

"People who score high on intelligence tests are also good at keeping time,
new Swedish research shows. The team that carried out the study also suspect
that accuracy in timing is important to the brain processes responsible for
problem solving and reasoning...They also demonstrated a correlation between
high intelligence, a good ability to keep time, and a high volume of white
matter in the parts of the brain's frontal lobes involved in problem
solving, planning and managing time." [Karolinska Institutet]

Reminds me of my little article. Be smart. Be on time.

Doesn't this suggest that lateness is genetic, and late people should be given employment protections?

Just writing to point out that BR skipped a level. Before we get to inherited Late-tosis (Latosis?) we have inherited Stupidoscity. After all, stupid people aren't responsible for their condition.

Pretty soon those jerks at Microsoft will be sorry they didn't give me the CEO spot. B%$#&s said I didn't have a clue of how to do that job, *+$@! Anyone know a good -- err, I mean stupid -- lawyer?

Dude if it were only so simple. The fact that smart people keep time does NOT imply that keeping time will make you smart.

So then, people who are too early are *really* stupid, right? I mean, they can't keep time, *and* they're wasting it. Right?
