Up and At Em

Frustrated by a penchant for oversleeping? Setting a backup alarm not doing the trick? Make a serious commitment to punctuality by sleeping in a dumpster!

The 6:30 a.m. wake up call worked a little too well for an unidentified homeless man in Calgary, who was no doubt fully alert once the dumpster he was sleeping in was hoisted high into the air and emptied into the hopper of a BFI garbage truck. Unfortunately, he was seriously injured in the process and narrowly avoided death by shouting frantically for help before driver activated the truck's compactor.

It's still better than that alarm clock that rolls off the nightstand when you try to hit the snooze bar.
