What If Everyone Went To Sleep At The Same Time? – Dear Blocko #14


Hey there! Welcome to another episode of Dear Blocko! This is the show where I answer your questions
about your world and my world. Let’s get started with our first question. James Q asks
#DEARBLOCKO What if everyone went to sleep at the same time? Well, if everyone in the world decided to
completely sync up their bedtimes, things would get pretty weird. To begin with, certain portions of the world
would be sleeping during daylight hours. This would not only disrupt their natural
circadian rhythm and sleep-wake cycle,, but would force them to work at night, making
outdoor jobs, like construction and agriculture, very difficult. This regimented sleep time would also affect
energy production and carbon dioxide emissions. While everyone is asleep, power grids would
feel a sigh of relief and emissions would decline. But when everyone wakes up around the same
time and starts using their lights and appliances, emissions would surge due to all the power
stations firing up – something critics of Earth Hour have pointed out.,, And with people up and working at night, we
would use more electricity for lighting than the 232 billion killowatthours the United
States already consumes yearly for homes and buildings. Right now, this only accounts for 6% of the
country’s total electrical use. Who knows how big this percentage would grow
if the world adopted the same sleep time. Interested question though. Thank you for asking! Makayla H asks
#DearBlocko Why do people get car sick? People that feel sick or nauseous when traveling
by car, airplane, or boat are all suffering from motion sickness., This happens when there
is a conflict between what you are seeing and what your body is feeling., While the car is moving, your inner ear, which
is responsible for your sense of balance, feels your motion., But if you are looking
at your phone instead of out the window, your eyes don’t register the movement. This mix-up can result in feelings of dizziness,
cold sweats, nausea and vomiting., All of that is bad stuff… But now for some good stuff, it’s time for
questions about me and my world! Galaxy World asks
#DearBlocko What would you do if you encountered an alien 👽? Well, I’ve actually encountered a lot of
aliens. Many aliens visit the Life Noggin world. Some are evil. Some are nice. Others are made of spiders. And those are a little harder to love, for
obvious reasons. Circlia does a great job of fighting off the
bad aliens though. She’s great. Rice Rat
#Dearbloko Have you ever had any wars in your World? Hmm I don’t think so. Actually, come to think of it, we did have
a small scuffle with a group of Alpacas, but they started it… They were just looking at me funny, you know? They’re just weird, ok? They’re weird looking. Anyway, do you have any questions about your
world or my world? Let me know in the comment section below,
and make sure you use the hashtag #DEARBLOCKO so I can find it! And if you are up to it, follow me on Twitter
and Instagram as well! Wanna watch another episode of Dear Blocko? Check out this one we did! “Well first of, when people talk about a
person’s Intelligence Quotient or IQ, they’re usually talking about a score they got on
some tests that are thought to measure a person’s cognitive abilities or intelligence compared
to other people in their age group.” As always my name is Blocko! This has been Life Noggin! Don’t forget to keep on thinking.
