An Actual Fire Alarm
Most of you reading this, like us, could be classified as “night people.” Getting drunk and staying up all night go hand-in-hand. It’s fine.
The problem comes when morning rolls around and it’s time to wake up. Waking up is hard to do. Alarm clocks are a joke. Some alarms are so quiet you can actually just sleep right through them. The rest of ’em have easy snooze buttons or can be thrown out of a window by even the bareliest awake of persons. (“Bareliest” isn’t a word. Roll with it.)
Oh, you’ve got an alarm app on your phone? That’s even worse. How often do you check a notification on your phone, set it down and go back to sleep? Our sleeping brains are basically trained to do this and it doesn’t take much to forget that alarm wasn’t a regular notification.
There are some good alarm clocks out there. We’ve posted several. But if you’re ready to put an end to your morning sluggishness, let us ask you a question. When was the last time you slept through a fire alarm or a school bell? Yeah, you can get one of those suckers installed in your home and they ring at 95 dB. (That’s suuuuper loud.)
No snooze button.
