Unusual one this, but definitely a "current event" of the "other" variety.
I'll qualify my position by saying I'm not sure if its a local thing to me, or something more widespread, but fascinatingly - it could tie into this thread.
Everyone, and I do mean everyone I come across at the present time, from friends and associates, through to work colleagues and even people who's conversations I hear in the street all seem to be saying the same thing, that they are tired and run down, and have no idea what they've done to cause it.
So, firstly, is anyone else experiencing this in other parts of the world, and if so what do you think its down to? Atmospheric effects, weather conditions, missing time and being out of sync (as alluded to in the thread I linked) some kind of virus, global conciousness or something even more sinister?

It's sleep apnea. Seriously.
As a whole we are a fat people.
I may add not all apnea is due to obesity.
But that's what it is.
And poor sleep hygiene.
Richard Hudson, a historian, points to the fact that, in its own way, modern life is exhausting because we often feel compelled to live by its standards, even though technically we have a choice to live otherwise. 'Back in the Sixties, it was predicted that Noughties living would be easier,' he continues. 'Everybody thought we would benefit from the invention of machines to carry out the more mundane tasks in our life, leaving us far more time for leisure and relaxation. And yet the opposite has happened. These domestic machines exist and yet we're more stressed, more pushed for time, more exhausted, because we have been liberated to do so much else. 'We are all, broadly speaking richer,' he says, 'which in itself discourages a sense of dependency on others. In the past, poor people knocked on each other's doors and asked for help. I bet you wouldn't do that, however exhausted you were.'
