IMO any "4 day week" article that doesn't clarify if they're talking about 4x8h or 4x9h ("working fewer hours but hopefully with more productivity") or 4x10h ("long weekends are magic") is too vague to actually be useful.

I'd be willing to try either of the former (or 9/80) to see if it works, I'm not interested in the latter at all. Prior experience indicates that even well rested on a Monday I can't maintain full productivity into the 10th hour; and most of the time the reduced free time on work nights isn't worth a gaining a three day weekend for me.

Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
