Parents who don’t let their kids sleep in are evil

Researchers in Hong Kong found that children who got less sleep tended to be heavier (as measured by body mass index, or BMI) than children who slept more. But among children who slept less than eight hours a night, those who compensated for their weekday sleep deficit by sleeping late on weekends or holidays were significantly less likely to be overweight or obese.

This is why I think it always felt so right sleeping in on the weekends, even though my parents always guilt-tripped me about it.  Also, this lends credence to the massive “Feeder-fetish” conspiracy that has been going around.  Feeders are infiltrating our society at an alarming rate.  What if your parents had a feeder fetish and they got off on seeing your gain weight, so they forced you to wake up early and “enjoy the day” on the weekends.
