    Default Black Monday (1/8W+(D-d) 3/8xTQ MxNA)... Enjoy

    TODAY

    A tutor at Cardiff University has calculated, for the UK at least, that Monday 23 January will mark a zenith of misery for the country as semi-sucicidal Brits descend into a black mire of depression and despair.

    The causes are all too familiar to long-suffering citizens of the rain-lashed United Kingdom: crap weather, personal debt on a developing-world scale, post-Xmas blues and a general apathy-inducing malaise.

    That, at least, is according to Cliff Arnalls who has developed a formula - 1/8W+(D-d) 3/8xTQ MxNA - which is able to pinpoint the worst day of the year.

    Factors included in the calculation are:
    • W: Weather
    • D: Debt
    • d: Money due in January pay
    • T: Time since Christmas
    • Q: Time since failed quit attempt
    • M: General motivational levels
    • NA: The need to take action
    Arnalls noted that "any energy from the holiday had worn off by the third week of January", and added: "By Monday, most people will have fallen off the wagon or abandoned the nicotine patches as they fail to keep New Year's resolutions."

    That, coupled to a lack of wedge, inertia and inclement weather conspire to make Monday 23 January the absolute pits for Brits.
