Mohammed Oulhiad: I sleep till 10 who else?

Jack Bird: My favourite shift at work is 11-7 I bet alot of people would prefer it to 9-5 if most people did it

I react to everything Everything: Finally my mom can’t tell me to go to bed earlier

SuperDavid6000: I have this since as long I can remember. Horrible mornings an countless hours staring at the ceiling . I have met over 5 doctors so far an they never understood anything. I am meeting with a neurologist in 2 weeks, what tests can be done? What treatments are there? What tests should i demand? I would be very happy if I could get a reply before my doctors appointment . Thanks, you can reply to if you want. I appreciate anything by now. thanks again.

BookTardis394: I’m ‘internal clock’ tells me to go to bed at 2:00 AM
I then wake up anywhere from 7 AM - 11 AM

Rohith Kumar: I sleep at 4 am as that's only time I can game with other friends online, and get up at 9 and go to work by 10 and come home at 8 and rinse and repeat, i just don't want to waste time sleeping.

Erin Cassidy: They didn't mention that on "workdays" i'm still unable to sleep early though. My comfortable bedtime is 2am and i can mayybee push it to 12:30 if im absolutely exhausted, if i sleep any earlier than that I'm guaranteed to wake up in the night and struggle to get back to sleep. Made school miserable, thankfully i now start work at 5:30pm and I get a full 8 hours everynight

Habagzg Hzbbsbs: Fuckyou for showing a man butt naked at 0:02

Ceparator: Bit of feedback. The graph is a bit hard to understand, is it what time you go to sleep or wake up or the gene clock?

Halooord Rides: Finally, I have an excuse. I'll show this to my boss.


A Random fish: i go to bed at 5am on weekends

Venus Gillespie: Ugh, my mind either wants to go to bed at 7:00 and wake up at 4:30 (much more useful for a farmer who has to make breakfast, but hard to achieve after making dinner) or go to bed at 12:00 and wake up at 10:00 (makes me feel depressed and sleepy). It’ll be interesting to see how my sleep changes when I change time zones and move to Wales...

Jenny W: I find it so much easier to do school work from 10pm - 2am

24 carrot magic: My body won't let me got to sleep before midnight unless I'm super super tired and it's really annoying

js S: Can it change over time. Ima getting tireder as i get older lol

Survivalist Redo: I not gonna blame my gentics because I used to go to sleep at 9:00 pm now i go to sleep at 2:00 to 3:00 am

Alison Laett: So many things other than your genes (such as exercise, exposure to blue light, etc) affect your internal clock. How do you think people travel? They adapt their internal clocks. It's not that hard, come on.

Bairen Siwang: sees the title
CLICKS also yawns...

OngoingTech: Am I the only one who likes waking up early?
