Next Big Exercise Fad: Keeping Me Angry And Awake All Night

The holidays are a busy time for everyone, EIGN staff included. Between traveling, eating, drinking and socializing with old friends and neighbors, we're all a bit run down and tired. Yet none of this even compares to the personal hell I suffered through on Christmas Eve night. I got to see the sun rise on Christmas morning out the window; Laying on the floor 10 feet away from me was EIGN co-founder and my brother, Pete, snoring so loudly that I was unable to fall asleep for 4 hours. Happy holidays! So I guess it was irony or coincidentalally or funny or just the universe fucking with my head that I came across an article from the bbc yesterday about snoring.

According to the BBC "people with bedtime snoring and breathing problems may be using up far more calories while they sleep."

This throws us into an unusual paradox. Fat people snore more. people who snore more burn more calories. people who burn carlories lose weight. people who lose weight snore less. fat people that lose weight eat more. people who eat more get fat. Fat people snore more. What a weird cycle.

All of this is not to say that my brother is fat, just an asshole.
