Debates are fun and intriguing but unfortunately they are also bit time consuming. I read this article today that claims that one should never study all night. Now here is what I think about the issue (I guess the picture says it all…) :
Rubbish. Yes, I’ve said it before and I will say it again. Studying is pretty much composed of perception, that means: What works for one person might not work for another! Some people have clearly adapted to studying all night (although I am not one of them) so this anti-night type of reasoning can not apply to them! I do understand that the human brain does work in a fairly similiar matter for all of us, but lest we forget the brain it self can clearly adapt to a certain pattern.
The statistics he uses in the article is quite misleading but then again stats generally can never really explain specific behavior. Homer Simpson said it in the most elequoent matter:
“Oh, people can come up with statistics to prove anything, Kent. Forty percent of people know that.” H. J. Simpson
