    A 5 minute nap can make all the difference when you’re not actually tired.

    @Night-Gaunt49 “fabled ‘suger rush’” indeed! You may recall in more detail than I do the news a few years ago that the “studies” done several decades back did not at all show that sugar caused hyperactivity in children. The proponents of that notion, though, were so determined to impose their concept on everyone that they aggressively put out false news releases, and that’s where the concept of the “sugar rush” originated. When this was exposed, in recent years, the news was largely ignored. Quite the modern-day “old wives’ tale.”

    I didn’t know that!

    But I find it very hard to believe that newspapers will selectively report some information and ignore what doesn’t suit them. Surely our gallant, reliable members of the media wouldn’t be so iniquitous.

    I DID know that – but nice to know it’s confirmed.

    People might make fun of me for reading cartoons, but they can be very educational.

    Supposedly one can absorb about 60 grams of glucose in less than a minute through the stomach.
    While sucrose is a bisaccharide, a combination of glucose and fructose and thus takes a short time to break down, glucose goes right into the system.
    The high fructose corn syrup in sodas is 42% glucose. So, drink that can and 42% of 45 grams is 18.9 grams of sucrose.
    Then the insulin kicks in and dumps it out of your system by converting it to fat. CRASH. triglyceride city.

    Not at least for several weeks yet where I grew up. School isn’t even out yet in many places in PA. Where I grew up, school let out just before Father’s Day. We started our school year just after Labor Day.
    Michigan, where this strip is set, has a great state law that forbids schools from starting their school year before Labor Day.

    We always started school the Thursday before Labor Day. Two days on, then three days off – I think it was supposed to be some kind of shock treatment, though for the kids or the teachers I don’t know.

    Sugar has always had an effect on me. Not sure about the rush so much. I tend to have manic moments no matter what I eat, but I certainly do have that crash. The more I have, the worse it is. Which is why I monitor my diet very closely now. There’s very little sugar in my diet, and I don’t buy any processed foods at all.

    Ashburn, Michigan’s two great laws: No school before Labor Day, (It saved the UP’s economy big time..) and the bottle law…..You will not find a beer can anywhere in Michigan unless you get up very early at a huge party,,,….Laws that work really impress me…

    Frazz ought to remind the kid that he’s a child and Frazz is an adult, and a child calling an adult who is not his older sibling “cocky” is out of line.
