A recent poll conducted among healthcare professionals suggests that the Triassic period may well have provided the most beneficial living conditions known to man.
The random survey conducted by Dr. Claude Bleu, a depression expert at the Adelaide Dream Research Institute, found that that living conditions at the time would have been infinitely preferable to today's "rat-infested, stinking and downright pointless existence" with a preponderance of forest, bountiful lakes and plenty of freshly made petrol and coal.
Additional benefits such as tectonic plates not yet having been formed allowed greater ease of travel from one place to another with "no congestion whatsoever on major routes".
Given the choice of Jurassic, Triassic or Today, most healthcare workers opted for the Triassic although some 30% declined to participate in the study. Dr Bleu hopes to have his book, 'I reckon stuff was like way better before' published in time for a UK tour.
