My friend Eddie says that if I were one of the X-Men, my secret power would be the ability to fall asleep anywhere, anytime, on demand. The worst is when you're working and you go out to Italian or Chinese for lunch. Then you come back to your cubicle and stare at the computer screen as it hypnotizes you: You are getting sleepy, very sleepy, you want a little nap...

Dude, falling asleep at your cube isn't a superpower, it's a job requirement.

Falling asleep while standing at attention in a parade formation - THAT is a superpower.

Some of the new researches in HR science require that they aggressively test prospective employees for insomnia. Those who pass the test become managers. The rest dont.
