A MAN’S inbuilt 24-hour cycle has guided him to stay up playing League of Legends until at least 3am, he has confirmed.
Jack Browne believes it is better for his mental and physical health to follow the natural rhythms of his body, which wants him to ignore a 7.30am alarm and to remain awake far past midnight, alone, online and drinking cans of Monster.
He said: “The modern world has forced us to follow routines that go against our biorhythms. I’ve tried going to bed earlier, but I’m never going to win against science.
“It’s probably because my ancestors were nocturnal hunters, catching meat for the tribe with their amazing late-night reflexes. It’s the raw alpha male in me that refuses to sleep, not being addicted to Counter-Strike.
“By sitting in darkness staring at a rectangle of glowing light, I think I’m awakening the instincts that would’ve seen me drag home sabre-toothed tiger carcasses 10,000 years ago. It’s remarkable what you can discover if you listen to nature.”
Girlfriend Lauren Hewitt said: “Jack’s evolutionary path is primitive but powerful, compelling him to live a life unlike most. He sleeps all day and he’ll die before he reaches 40.”
