I'm pretty sure Jeff lives in the US, but judging from his activity, I'm not sure. He seems to be alive at 2am(Central) and I also see him at 9am. Sure, this is 7 hours difference for him to sleep, but doesn't he have things to do like eat, look after his hygene and other things?

Clearly, a human would not have such crazy posting habits, and therefore I propose that Jeff is an alien that hates bacon and does not sleep.

On a different note, I don't see Joel often, but it's usually at around 1am.. Clearly Jeff and Joel are the same person! Hence the whole SO operation is a cover up for illegal rep gaming!! No one is safe!

    @Chris you should have seen it before tag synonyms. We also had tags for random people, tags like "always-friday-in-iceland" and other random things. But those days of jokes-gone-too-far are gone, sadly

According to his Twitter activity, he is more likely to sleep between 4 a.m. and 12 p.m. (or 8 hours)

Here is the link to the source.

  • @rlb.usa: I'm not surprised. I've learned that, among other things, in the long run it's regular sleep what makes you most productive. (But then, I'm old, and Jon isn't.)

Some birds sleep with half of their brain at a time while making long migration trips. Perhaps Jeff has mastered this art - during the hours when both hemispheres are available, he programs. When he's working with only one hemisphere, he participates in Meta :)

    I've never seen someone use more tact and subtlety to call someone else a birdbrain...! ;-P

    @Pollyanna Calling somebody "birdbrained" in this context isn't exactly an insult ;) Context. Context. Context.

    This goes a long way toward explaining why so many cases come back status-norepro or status-bydesign.

No. Of course not. Sleep is just an inefficient replacement for caffeine.

I understand he has a baby, so he probably can't count on keeping any sort of realistic sleep schedule at all.

here, have a bunny baby!
