Flickr - I've just turned pro

I thought 'what the hell' and decided to buy 2 years on Flickr. Now I can start shooting the pictures and share them with other. I even got my first comment today; some guy liked my "here's the head of a barbie doll" on the plate.

I'm pretty excited to see how it will work.

PhysOrg: Researchers identify sleep gene

As part of my "never-ending quest to understand the wonderful phenomena of sleep", I've came across this article on PhysOrg:
Researchers identify sleep gene. Apparently, fruit flies (which sleep like humans, between 6 and 12 hrs/day) have a specific gene that regulates potassium channels that activates the neuons inside the cells. Flies, that have this gene removed, need approx. 1/3 less sleep. As fruit flies, due to their simpler DNA, are usually used to verify ideas that later can be applied to humans, it won't be long until we will "produce" a man that doesn't need to sleep at all (all those X-Files episodes and Sci-Fi films are coming back to me right now).

Let me muse some more on sleep: I'm one of those (unhappy) people that dream very rarely, and I think it is very unfair (well, life in general is, but still it sucks!). It's a pity, this "mystic kingdom" is always so vivid and real, that it beats all films & music I've ever heard in my whole life. The best horror movies-like I've seen were in my sleep... and still, I have them so rarely.

OK, enough: I'm going to bed.

PS: I watched The Machinist, where a guy can't sleep for last 12 months and start to see things and people that don't exist.

long way back

I've just come back from home; due to stupid schedule, I had to be on the airport at 5:30 AM! 3-hour long drive there does not help, going to bed at almost 1:00 AM didn't either. I feel tired. A man can feel really like crap with so little sleep. We couldn't get off the plane, there were some problems with this mobile corridor at the airport, so instead of using front exit, we had to us the back one, after wasting like 15 minutes waiting for someone to give us the directions. D'oh! The whole flying thing is all right, but the extra stuff you need to take care of, all the (un)expected delays, driving to the airport, being 1 hour prior to the departure - all that makes flying pretty lame.

Or, maybe I'm just whining. After all it's 6 hours vs. 18-20 by coach. You can't beat it!
