Oh wow, I have having the hardest time waking up in the morning. Can anyone recommend me a good alarm for my iphone? Maybe something that requires me to do something complex to turn off the alarm?

I set 5 alarm clocks spread throughout my room. I go through them a lot because I usually throw against the wall when I'm half asleep. >_>"

I don't think I would use my iPhone as an alarm for the reasons above. >_<"

Jeebus, do you really go through five alarm clocks? Do they all go off at once?

Skip the alarm clocks! Just rig up a 5 gallon bucket of ice water above your head to spill on you when it's time to get up.

If getting soaked with cold water...and "bonked" on the head with a chunk of ice doesn't get you up...I can come up with some additional self-torturing techniques!

Yes, and no. I set two of them to go off 5 minutes later.

I don't think it would still be ice water if I did it the night before. >_>" Might be interesting though cause then I could probably save some time in my morning routine. >_<"

That's true and with the concussion you sustained from that "bonk," you have to stay awake or else you'll die!!!!!!!!

Actually, I did something similar in college where once the alarm rang, i would grab a ice cold water bottle from my bedside refrigerator gulp some of it down and put the rest by my pillow.

I thought that you might say that. You just fill the bucket with ice (no water) the night before. By the time it time to get up...you'll have ice water (some water/some ice).

It's a silly idea..but might save you money buying more alarm clocks when you "wing" them against the wall. Of course with the ice-water...you'll be doing more laundry!

Ice water? Nah, rig a fog horn to go off 4 inches from your bed. You might be deaf for half the day but it'll get you up! (Not to mention half the Neighborhood)
