Statistically, you probably aren't any nearer the smartest than I am.
If you can successfully write that prior down, you're almost certainly wrong.
If you can't write that prior down, you're still wrong (but in the opposite direction).
If they are drinking caffeinated sodas (can't be bothered to look up the study, which is probably worthless weakly correlated crap anyway and as for the click-bait link - fuck it up its stupid ass) - 24/7 caffeine intake might be causing them continuous inadequate rest and sleeping disorders, causing increased mental and physical stress.
Not to mention that the cause of so much caffeine might be workplace stress, compounding the effects.
Working oneself into an early grave IS after all tied to stroke, dementia, cancer, cardiac arrest, divorce, alcoholism, drug use, office shootings and looting the company accounts before flying away to Paraguay with Candy.
I once read a book by Linda Hill that I personally found amazingly valuable, but only because I was careful not to light any matches, because her presentation was dry, dry, dry.
Because of the Indian incompetence story here on Slashdot this morning, I went to paste a link into my files, and chanced upon a past entry concerning HCL Technologies, a topic that Linda Hill has addressed in video, and soon I found myself watching a clip of hers on YouTube I hadn't seen before.

The problem in India with the educational system is that the system dictates and student repeats.
... We all had to unlearn how we were educated. And the leaders had to unlearn what they thought leadership was about. Because if you grow up in that kind of system, when you're a leader what you think your role is, is that you're supposed to set direction and make sure nobody deviates from it. That's fundamentally how they saw their role.
And here we have this Wikipedia article, where the unstated premise seems to be "Surprise! Derf-derf-derf, Wikipedia doesn't actually practice zero-deviation culture, despite their publicly assigned role as the plastic–pocket-protector paragon of geek dysfunction.
No, instead what we have is this: if a source is broadly flagged as tainted, it becomes open season to replace this source with a better citation wherever and whenever, without expecting significant blow back.
Isn't that leadership enough?
Is the underlying zero-deviation fixation that motivates this story just a tired strawman? Or is this derf-derf strawman meme playing to a real audience?
Well, I personally would run, run, run if I found myself in that audience, because anyone who doesn't is doomed to be soon be looking up at India as the management enlightenment movement that just passed you by with a big whoosh.
I don't see a problem with this. You want specific levels of error handling? Put it in the spec.
If you're not familiar with this convention (it appears you haven't been in this business long enough to hear the pathetic whimpers of Forma L. val d'Ation sequestered away from public shame in an attic antechamber), the "h" stands for "head".
Republicans only care about money. Can you do the job? Good. Get to work.
Cutting red tape to ribbons is an intrinsically easier job than building up effective layers of regulation that prevent the public interest being bent over a barrel, while the longest of all possible rubber gloves rummages around for the better part of a trillion dollars.
Evidently, no money was harmed in the operation.
The job, as I see it, is a little harder to accomplish, once you concede that there is such a thing as effective regulation, though it's yet far from a science; science also being a discipline where time after time ones best efforts fall short, and yet one perseveres.
In the best case scenario, even after regulation becomes more of science, it will still be double hard: hard to do and hard on the ego.
Kind of makes a guy want to double down on only caring about money, setting oneself up on a lavish private beach, and watching the glorious Egos soar.
Thanks to millennials, 'Murica is a joke.
Maybe on that side of the pond, but it wasn't the millennials or generation z that voted for Brexit.
But with that convenience you lose a lot of efficiency compared to leaving everything as electricity.
How do you carry a tank of electricity around in your vehicle without converting it to some other form? Did you invent cheap room-temperature superconductors and forget to tell anyone?
