Every other night since my ouster, I've not slept. Makes it a bit hard to work on resumes, respond to offers of assistance in a meaningful way, etc.
In one conversation I've had in the past couple of days, we got on to the effects of low oxygen on the human brain. I couldn't help but notice that they sound an awful lot like certain workplace environments. Here's what happens when the oxygen level's reduced from its normal 20%:
12–15%: Increased pulse rate and respiration, impaired perception and judgment.
Happily, I had an invitation from a friend to go head over to his place for a drink or two after dinner.
