I don't know, the sun is shining, skies are blue, there's maybe a bit too much wind, but January 24 the most depressing day of the year? Someone over in England has just a little too much time on his hands.
British psychologist, Dr. Cliff Arnall, who has chosen this depressing date after much study, has even devised an algebraic type formula to better explain his findings. The formula to determine the low point for winter humans looks like this: (note: if you are one of the many folks who have a fear of algebra you might want to look away from the monitor for a moment)
[W + (D-d)] x TQ
M x NA
The equation is broken down into seven variables: (W) weather, (D) debt, (d) monthly salary, (T) time since Christmas, (Q) time since failed quit attempt, (M) low motivational levels and (NA) the need to take action.
Now I am depressed.
