Public health warning: alarm clocks cause sleep deprivation

Friday, 11 June, 2010

Food for thought: in the interests of countering sleep deprivation, it is suggested that we do away with our alarm clocks.

The art of time-management makes it possible to live at a high speed with an alarm clock at your side, and still be free from stress. However, the societal damage inflicted by alarm clocks used to regulate sleep is unforgivable. An alarm clock that interrupts your sleep damages your memories, your ability to learn, your mood and temper, your relationships with other people, your ability to focus and your overall intellectual performance!

Wake up to a tantrum at 5:30am, like you really want to

Tuesday, 30 September, 2008

Thankfully the 5:30am starts I’ve had to make these past few weeks are over.

If I’d had a tantrum throwing alarm clock waking me at such an ungodly hour (I’m just not a morning person), instead of the gentle chimes of the C902 , I’d have probably thrown it at the wall!

This is the alarm clock that pounds its fists and opens its mouth while “shouting” its alarm. As your selected wake-up time approaches to within five minutes, its feet and body will begin to glow, and when the alarm sounds, it begins tapping its arms lightly, but if you are dilatory in touching its snooze sensor by more than one minute, it launches into its full tantrum routine (turns off after an hour of unabated whining).
