France is world’s most sleepy country

France is world’s most sleepy country – Odd News |

A study into the leisure habits of people from 30 countries found that the French spent by far the longest amount of time sleeping. They spend an average of NINE hours in bed, over than an hour longer than people from Korea or Japan.

American’s were found to be almost as fond of their beds – with 8.5 hours – said researchers from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

It seems to me the researchers have jumped from ‘time spent in bed’ to ‘time spent sleeping’ a bit too quickly … remember this is the French we are talking about. The French also spent more time eating and drinking than anyone else – 2 hours a day which is nearly twice as much time at the table as Americans, Canadians or Mexicans.
