Reason #146 That I Love Italy


Love Berlusconi or hate him, you gotta love a country with a President that would say this:

“If I sleep for three hours, I still have enough energy to make love for another three,” the newspaper La Repubblica quoted him as telling the younger crowd. “I hope that when you hit 70, you’re in as good shape as I am.”

a 1:1 sleep to sex ratio is impressive. what's the typical american's ratio? what are our presidential candidate's ratio?

typical american ratio is 23:1.
i am slightly atypical, at 1:4.5
(thank you, thank you--you're so kind).
meanwhile, mccain has a slight edge over obama, at 1:400--but that's only because he hasn't slept in 8 months, out of fear he would never wake.
