I'm getting old and crotchety. I read somewhere that there are two types of people in the world - those that come in for bed at 11:00pm and those that are just heading out at 11:00pm.

They indicated what every other productivity study has shown since: that, up to around 40 hours a week, we're all pretty productive but, after that, we become less able to deliver reliable, cost-effective work. Why? Because when we get tired, we make mistakes

Guys: I'm not sure if you've received the memo concerning "getting chicked," but if the phrase "you got chicked!" (or any variant thereof) is something you've uttered or even thought about before, well, perhaps it is high-time you have...
1. Don't be so small-minded and chauvinistic; women are athletes too.
2. Swim enough and you'll be fully accustomed to being chicked.
3. Run against Chrissie or Caitlin or Mirinda or Melissa and trust me, you'll get chicked.
4. Play tennis against the Williams sisters and you'll be chicked, times two.
5. Ski against Lindsey Vonn and you'll end up chicked, if not in the emergency room....
