Need to Solve a Prolem?   Get Some Sleep!!!

Deadline approaches -- dozens of projects have to be attended to "right now!"  And you're saying "Get Some Sleep"?!? That's right! 

"...Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards said the riff in "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" came to him in his sleep, while the 19th-century chemist Dmitri Mendeleev literally dreamed up the periodic table of elements....

"...Samuel Taylor Coleridge wrote the epic poem "Kubla Khan" was written after a long night of rest. Robert Louis Stevenson credited a good night's sleep with helping him create scenes in "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde." And Elias Howe came up with his idea for the sewing machine after waking up..."

Others seem to get by on very little sleep. Einstein, for example, is reported to have relied on very little sleep, taking catnaps.

Apparently, the quality and duration of sleep may also affect memory as we grow older.
