No longer content with the latte-addled wakefulness provided by the Starbucks on every street corner, wealthy people have decided that they need to pay premium prices to make themselves less sleepy by ... sleeping. That's right, yuppies and spoiled college students across the United States are apparently waiting in line to shell out for a nap
. In special 'sleep spas.' I guess we really don't need any more evidence that we have too much spare time and money in this country.
Even further off the deep end, Gambian President Yahya Jammeh has announced that he can cure AIDS
(and asthma) in just three days. There's a joke about the assorted email-banking scams emanating from various African nations in here somewhere, but I am too high on cold medicine to come up with it.
