Ive never understood jet lag, or should I say I dont understand it cause Ive never experienced it. I mean, just cause its a different time where the plane lands from the place I left, my body has still experienced the same amount of hours lived, so, I think its mostly in people's heads. Sure, you might feel tired after sitting in one place after 6,7, or more hours.
When traveling across a number of time zones, the body clock will be out of synchronization with the destination time, as it experiences daylight and darkness contrary to the rhythms to which it has grown accustomed: the body's natural pattern is upset, as the rhythms that dictate times for eating, sleeping, hormone regulation and body temperature variations no longer correspond to the environment nor to each other in some cases. To the degree that the body cannot immediately realign these rhythms, it is jet lagged.
@gamewizard, jet lag is the feeling you get when your body is telling you it's 2am but you're walking down a sunny street in the afternoon. It's not the travelling, it's your internal clock still stuck in your normal timezone. I kinda miss it though. Haven't been to the states in years.
Had some awful jet lag from a trip to Vegas a few years ago. Was up almost every night past 3am PST (which was 6am EST).
It took me about a week before I could sleep normally again. It was brutal when I got back to PA. I would go to bed at 8, only to not be able to fall asleep at all. The first few nights back, I couldn't fall asleep until maybe 4 or 5 in the morning, which got me about 2 or 3 hours of sleep total because I'd have to get up at 7 for work. Each subsequent night I'd get maybe an hour back until things finally got back to normal.
It was AWESOME when I went to San Fran a couple years ago. I usually went to bed around 5am, so I totally fell asleep around "2am." Then my alarm went off around 8am or something, and it was like 11am! SOLID.
I might have those times mixed up, but you get the point
My body never adjusted. I mean, we weren't there that long, but it tooootally worked for me.
Hmmm. last time we was promised a Nintendo Direct and got screwed. I wonder if we will really get one in the NA this time?
I don't think NOA ever claimed they'd broadcast last time -- just Japan and Europe did, NOA said they'd tweet and post on Facebook (and it was actually probably a good decision since all they announced was NSMB2 and the Kirby compilation (which didn't even have any media to show)).
