16 hours a day

I just spoke with the founders of a startup, and they were telling me that they frequently work 12-16 hour days because they are just that excited about their product. Other than being paid some ridiculous rate like $500/hr, I can’t see why I would ever do anything for 12-16 hours a day. For your amusement, I’ll list things I could maybe do for 16 hours a day.

1. Lounge on the beach, given it doesn’t get too cold
2. Sleep, but probably I’d have to be dosed with carbs or be severely malnourished
3. Read a book from an addictive series like Twilight or Harry Potter
4. Wander around an interesting city*
5. Play bridge
6. Surf the internet*
7. Watch crap telly
8. Daydream
9. Shop
10. Holy shit I can’t even think of 10

* Maybe cheating because these activities cover a lot of sub-activities
