Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

Why is it when we travel we get tired? I mean, it's not like you're doing anything strenuous, and yet you feel completely wasted when you get to your destination. Is there some psychological/physiological reason for this?

- 15 Hours East

A: Dear 15 Hours East,

Sometimes not being active for a long time can make you feel tired. Ever do a movie marathon or sleep too much? Same principle. If your 'nym is any indication, then 15 hours might be the point of inactivity after which your body feels tired.
