A couple of guys regularly fell asleep in one of my classes last semester. The professor was incredibly intelligent and had worked as a contracts lawyer in Europe, but . . . he was as blind as a bat. Needless to say, people took advantage.

One guy would fall asleep in the most obvious ways. His head would tilt back, and then he would jerk awake. Then he would go back to sleep. I sometimes watched as he went through this process, because his eyes would start to sag really badly and you knew he was out.

Another guy fell asleep with his hand on the "n" key of his keyboard. He typed nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn for around fifteen pages in Word before someone woke him up. Someone also threw a paper clip at him.

Falling asleep in class is bad.

Wow, I didn't know this was based on a true story:

Oh yeah, that'd be me right now...

(I've had a headache for a month now... I went in to the campus health clinic thinking I must be dying of brain cancer only to be told I have the granddaddy of all tension headaches and for God's sake to go get some meds and a massage as soon as possible. I told them all I really need is for the ice to melt off the pathways so I can ride my damn bike!)

One of my old classes at night (I ALWAYS went into my night classes with the BIGGEST JUMBO cup of coffee I could - and even still as soon as I sat down - I relaxed and fought for the next hour to stay awake by doodling, fidgeting etc - till something kicked in and I was alert again) - there was a guy who was always 10 minutes late - zoomed in and sat down. Opened his book. And started to doze off ... first his head lolled forward so his chin touched his chest (by now about 10 of us were concentrating on him versus the professor) and then something half woke him up so he would snap too - and then the head would loll backwards --- which is when he started to snore.

Happened every class.

It's good that I enjoy chemistry so much, then.
