A Pet Peeve

One of my pet peeves are people who believe this stuff:

I know they're mostly long-held beliefs, but seriously, there are NO studies to support them. Get over it.

What the....? Clearly these people have never had children, or at least never been around children on a sugar high, and the eating before bed thing? Holy cow.

No, really. Look it up. Children are just naturally hyper. Sugar doesn't make them that way. If it worked that way, I wouldn't be fat. I would just hype-off all the sugar I eat.

Let it go.

OK, but please do not send that link to any of the people to whom I gave hand-knitted Christmas hats. I'm perfectly fine with perpetuating the (apparent) fallacy that significant body heat is lost through the (uncovered) head. :-)
