Lazy research ahead:
According to Wikipedia, there have been at least <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electromagnetic_hypersensitivity#Studies">31 experiments</a>; a systematic review concluded:
"The symptoms described by 'electromagnetic hypersensitivity' sufferers can be severe and are sometimes disabling. However, it has proved difficult to show under blind conditions that exposure to electromagnetic fields can trigger these symptoms. This suggests that 'electromagnetic hypersensitivity' is unrelated to the presence of electromagnetic fields, although more research into this phenomenon is required."
But bogomips and flip-flop gates are real things
BogoMIPS are Linus Torvald's fairly vague speed measure used in the Linux kernel for when time-based delays are too long.

The time line is definitely one of the best, although I was really tickled by "NMAP requires root access in order to allow B-trees" for some reason.

I didn't, but hitting this page comments and searching for BTDTGTTS didn't help either
UK billion = 10**9 for almost 40 years
The BBC article points out that the UK definition of billion has matched the US one since 1974.
I too prefer a billion to be defined as a million to the power of two, but do keep up
"hygiene" != "sleep hygiene"
'putting their mental health and "hygiene" at risk' should be 'putting their mental health and sleep hygiene at risk.'
This report is not claiming that us coders are smelly (in this study, at least); it's saying that we have bad habits like using computers before bed and having erratic bed times.
Nocebo effect, surely?
