Today is Most Depressing

According to Dr Cliff Arnalls at Cardiff University via Cordis Express (a weekly briefing on what's new in European research and innovation), bad weather, debts, fading seasonal cheer, a lack of motivation and failed resolutions all conspire to give us the blues. His formula for the day of misery reads
1/8W+(D-d) 3/8xTQ MxNA
where W is weather, D is debt, d is money due on January's payday, T is the time since Christmas, Q is the period since the failure to quit a bad habit, M stands for general motivational levels, and NA is the need to take action and do something about it.
The result reveals that January 24 is the most depressing day, coincidentally a Monday for 2005.

According to doctors, one of the best ways to beat the winter blues is to get plenty of exercise. As far as CORDIS Express is concerned, however, "the only way of making the most depressing day of the year any worse would be by adding jogging into the equation."

Jogging? Bill, you forgot that, at least for those of us up North -- where the snow and grey are most psychically foreboding -- the Good Lord has, as usual, prepared the cure prior to inflicting the disease.

Or don't you get to shovel snow in Atlanta?
