Watch the Antlers

Watch the Antlers

A report in yesterday’s New York Times explained that reindeer can make it through tough winters because “they hibernate on their feet.” In other words (I think), their metabolisms slow up to the point that they can live on stored fat when food is scarce and conditions dreadful, and they don’t exert themselves much. They accomplish this through going for long periods without sleep during times when they can find sufficient food and try to eat 24 hours a day.

If you substitute “consultants” for “reindeer” the story would still work, except reindeer have no choice.
