How not to fall asleep and droolPosted: October 9, 2011
Sitting in a darkened room after a free lunch on day two of a conference….
My advice to avoid this follows.Stab yourself in increasingly painful places with one of the inevitable free pencils.
Try and get caught in the eye with a laser pointer
Choke on a free mint – it’s impossible to nod off if you’ve got 17 mints in your mouth – I’ve tested it.
Call up a flashing box (on mobile/laptop screen?) Here’s one for free:
Try to sit in an uncomfortable position – trap increasingly sensitive folds of skin in increasingly tight places.
(as a last resort, and if its dark enough – you can attempt the ‘sterilizer’ and punch yourself in the testicles)
Seriously though – chewing gum is your friend, followed by drinking water frequently.
Keep adjusting your posture and trying to listen to write notes like I’m doing nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
