I've noticed that too. Maybe it's a linear progression.. as a newborn you need 15 hours per day, then you go through the 8 hour high-school phase, then the 5 hour phase in mid-life, and maybe just 2 or 3 hours (in the form of midafternoon naps {grin}) when you get older. And when you hit 0, you die. {grin}
