Ah yes, to fall asleep standing up. For some, it may seem like an impossible dream. For others, the prospect of nodding off on their feet fills them with dread. But regardless of how you feel about the inopportune nap time phenomenon, we can agree on one thing: it’s kind of funny, right?

Marines: they’re only human. Granted, they’re heroes with the most demanding jobs on the planet, but still. While movies, books, and video games depict our men and women in uniform would have you believe that they’re always at the ready to defend freedom, no amount of elite training can thwart Mr. Sandman for long.
What Has Science Done?
Sky Mall has long been loved as the leading purveyors of things no one wants or otherwise finds useful. But this device, which looks like a cross between Dr. Octopus’ exo-suit and the neck brace Spider-Man will inevitably put him in, might take the cake. Ignore for a moment that even the model looks dreadfully uncomfortable and ask yourself this: where do you want to sleep where you can’t lay down that isn’t a dangerous place to catch some shut-eye?
Always a Good Decision
Don’t dismiss his strategy yet. It’s quite brilliant when you piece it all together. After all, who could fall asleep after downing a Red Bull?

It’s All About Perspective
Life throws everyone a hurdle every now and then, and how we face them helps shape us as individuals. For example, you could say “I was knocked out and dropped like a sack of potatoes in the middle of the ring,” or you could change your perspective a bit: “I actually fell asleep moments before the punch landed, so technically I was already unconscious. Thus I never lost.”
See how easy it is to put a positive spin on things?
