quicko: when to work

So the other day I heard an Australian making the argument that Australians are forced to work hard over tremendously long hours when they work with Brits and Americans. Evidently, I was told, the Brits make all their major corporate decisions over the midnight beer at the pub, but the Americans make theirs bright-eyed and bushy-tailed over the 8 am cup of coffee. The poor Australians are tremendously torn between the two and therefore never get to sleep. At least they don't have to worry about dehydrating.

(Oh, come on, just let it be funny even if beer and coffee don't actually hydrate you.)
