For every 5 workers, there are 19 nonworkers. For every asleep person there are 2 awake persons. All workers are awake. Not all nonworkers are asleep. All sleepers are attached to beds. Awake nonworkers are attracted to toys. Children are attracted to their parents or guardians, as well as to books appropriate to their reading level. Certain workers are either attached or attracted to certain tools. For example, keyboardists are attached to keyboards and dishwashers are attracted to dishwashers. Loud tools such as keyboards and dishwashers repel sleepers. Likewise for loud toys. Alarum clocks repel each other if they are set to different times and are neutral with respect to each other if they are set to the same time.

       Travail indeed.   

       Are "workers" and "nonworkers" defined as "people working at this moment" or "people who hold a job"?   

       You're suggesting a 24-hour city that self-organizes?
