    It's great that you can do that and still be productive. I know plenty of people who can't because their sleep patterns don't work that way, and for them having some ... assistance ... operating effectively in the morning is probably a good thing. They probably get a lot more done in the late evening than you do, because that's when they're at their most effective and productive.

    Also worth considering that these things are age-related too. Several studies have suggested that age-related factors shift people's natural sleep patterns, which may have been an evolutionary advantage allowing different members of a group to be alert to danger at different times and still function effectively.

    No no, you misunderstand... I am NOT a morning person in the slightest, but still have to get up that early, partly so I have enough time to wake up and become at least basically functional... partly because I just have that much stuff to do before I go to work.
    I'm generally still up at 2-3am, playing games, making stuff and being productive.

    A bit of snobbery, really. Nothing wrong with McDonalds breakfast at all.

    Still, I rather have McDonalds than your usual M & S sandwiches.

    Marks and Spencer sandwich has more calories than McDonald's quarter pounder with cheese

    Managed to make a sausage and egg mcmuffin at home just using a griddle pan, a frying pan, egg ring and a lid.

    Worked rather well I must say.

    Now sourcing a sourdough muffin to improve the experience.
