    your brain de-frags.

    BTW, most animals need REM sleep. It was once thought that horses could get by with just dozing while standing--they have the ability to "lock" their legs in an upright position, so to speak and doze--but now we know they need about 20 minutes of REM sleep per 24 hours, and they can't get than unless they can lie down. Without it, they eventually start losing their balance and falling.

    Freedom has two enemies: Those who want to control everyone around them...and those who feel no need to control themselves.
