There you go, 2ish hours earlier than these kids, if I came to bed at 11pm on a school night at that age, I would have been useless in school the day after.
I overheard a conversation between two immigrant kids (14-15) the other day on the metro, who were proud of the fact the teacher had said, they were the worst students in the class and averaged d-f in all subjects, wtf.
