Brainwave most likely to strike at 10.04pm

Brainwaves are least likely to strike in the afternoon, according to a survey that suggests office workers have little chance of solving problems after lunch.
The least creative time in the day is 4.33pm, with 92 per cent of people admitting to feeling uninspired in the afternoon.
The poll of 1,426 people showed that a quarter of us stay up late burning the midnight oil when seeking inspiration.
Taking a shower is the most popular way of getting our creative juices flowing, with 44 per cent of us heading beneath the nozzle when in need of a mental breakthrough.
It appears that bathrooms have a key role to play in bringing on brainwaves. Greek scientist Archimedes is reported to have shouted “Eureka!” (“I have found it!”) after the spillage of water from his bath helped him understand how to measure volume.
The research also showed that 58 per cent of people forget their best ideas by failing to write them down immediately, although women are more successful at keeping note of their brainwaves.
A third of all people polled aged 35 or more choose to write notes on the backs of their hands, the poll by the Crowne Plaza hotel chain showed.
This supports the general idea around here at mediawhore that spending time in the bathroom at home and work is in fact extremely productive. Despite what other people *cough* Girlfriends and Wives*/cough* say to the contrary.
So the question i pose for you fellow Mediawhores. Do you find yourselves getting creative while in the shower or bathroom? If not where do you find your most creativeness to be?
