Guys I'm scared. I can't sleep so I made some Sleepytime EXTRA Tea. The extra strong stuff with the bear on the box. No big deal right?

Well, I USED 3 TEABAGS! I was trying to be hardcore and sleep extra good, but I think I overdid it. It's starting to kick in.

I'm really scared, should I call 911? I'm starting to feel sleepy, too sleepy. This is not natural, I keep getting sleepier and sleepier. When will it stop? Am I going to be ok?

Could you use that to power a starship or something? Or maybe start small with a car, perhaps?

Well.... I think students are powered by a low-yield sleep-antisleep reactor. I guess you could get them to push your car...

Each tea bag has 25mg, so you've had 75mg and a medicinal dose is more like 1-2g. If you are also on some other depressant, even alcohol, it could increase the effects. So as long as you are not severely allergic to it, you'll probably be ok.

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

Yeah, you're probably okay, but if you're feeling odd, I wouldn't do that again. If you are on other medication or drank some alcohol, you might want to talk to a pharmacist first before drinking any of it again. Often herbal supplements over-the-counter are just fine, but when combined with certain other medications (including other over-the-counters), there can be some pretty detrimental results.

The good news is that you should be safe from elves, the bad news is that every rat and cat in the neighborhood will want to party with you.

And don't be surprised if you wake up covered in slime mold.

Boogalou! An update is required! I see you've logged on today. So, how long did you sleep? Were you completely knocked out, or did you have a fitful sleep?

He had nightmares about possibly overdosing on tea. His dreams were very meta.

... Do you actually know any students?! We are powered by high gravitational fields in the duvet. We have about 1 hour battery life, then we need to recharge for another 12. It's tough, but fair.

And as for Physical exertion...




Ah, you're talking about Humanities students! No, I was talking about Engineering & Comp Sci students. There's a big difference.
