    A Gene That Means You Need Less Sleep
    There are a few famous people in history who benefit from this gene. The DEC2 gene basically shortens a person's sleep cycle, so they feel just as rested on less sleep. Illustrious figures like Winston Churchill, Nikola Tesla, and Margaret Thatcher have all used this gene to get tons of work done while other people needed their sleep.

    Of course, those people might not have called it a blessing, no matter how nice it sounds to us. Instead of the normal eight hours we all SHOULD be getting, these people got by with between four and six hours. Despite the number of figures who have profited from it, this is a pretty rare mutation.

    Same here. Doesn't matter what time I go to sleep, I'll be wide awake in 3-4 hours. Last night, went to bed at 10pm and woke up at 2am. Just laying there trying to go back to sleep is a futile attempt.

    We make good reefer drivers though; that's a positive.
