A Shocking Way to Start the Morning

I know there's lots of people out there who have a hard time getting up in the morning.  I knew one guy when I was in college who would set several alarm clocks in different parts of the room to help him wake up.  This isn't the worst idea except for the fact he was my roommate and it was rather annoying when he had an early class and I was still trying to sleep.

I had another rooommate who used to hit the snooze bar over and over and over and over again which was as annoying (if not more) than the clock radios around the room guy.

However, there's a new invention in the works that may put a stop to those addicted to the snooze bar.  It's a clock radio that actually gives you a little shock when you hit the snooze bar.

No joke.

A 19-year-old student named Sankalp Sinha at India's Sharda University thought of the idea in 2008 and now he's trying to make it a reality.  But why stop there?  I think some people will get used to the shock and put up with it just to get a few more minutes of sleep.  I think Mr. Sinha needs to think of a few more "settings" for his clock radio.

Here's are some other ideas for what happens when someone hits the snooze bar:

A swarm of bees is released from the clock radio

The snooze bar calls your mother and she in turn calls you to tell you she's disappointed you didn't make your bed yet

A hologram of Boo Boo Honey appears and starts talking
The last play of this season's Packers/Seahawks game is replayed 10 times

Gotye's "Somebody I Used to Know" starts playing

And probably the scariest thing of all...You are instantly listening to Jonathan and Kitty in the morning!

OK...I know this is weird, but it's real life for me. I have my alarm clock set an hour and a half ahead. If it is 6:00am, my alarm clock says 7:30am. Now...doesn't that look much better than 6? Even though my mind knows it, i am still more at peace with 7:30am. My family is mildly amused by it, although they don't understand. On another note, there is an alarm clock out now that goes off, then rolls off your nightstand while continuing to go off. You have to chase the darned thing down to shut it off. It really exists.
