  • cew-smoke: Literally the perfect woman.  She wakes up, you eat a meal with her, hang out for a bit, have sex, then put her to bed.  You then have all the rest of the day to yourself.  My god.  It would be amazing.


    You're on to something here.

    She would only need a couple outfits and pairs of shoes.

    The house would be set up the way I like it.

    You're right. The perfect woman.
  • It seems that according to the original original story, she's from Minnesota.

    Probably some sleepy bedroom community.
  • I have a one month old. As long as someone is watching him and I don't need to be at work, I will sleep for as long as I damned well please. Anyone who tells me I should do otherwise will be struck down with righteous fury.

  • KarmicDisaster: Quaker: The 23-year-old said she hopes to promote awareness about the disorder.

    Why do so many people with any kind of issue need to turn it into a cause? It sucks that she suffers like that, but it's a medical disorder that's only seen 500 total cases worldwide. There are a lot of vastly more important things we should be educating people about before we get that far down the list.

    Because, take the bull by the horns and do something. Otherwise you are just a victim and life sucks. Your choice.  I vote do something.


    I think there's a pretty big middle ground between being a victim and trying to make your issue some kind of cause célèbre. You can just be proactive in your own life without feeling like you need to make it a public cause. Although it's interesting that you chose the word "victim", because a lot of people including sociologists that I've heard (specifically on NPR, if that matters) have referred to our current culture as a "victimhood culture" where being a victim carries a kind of social status. So for a lot of people I think that is largely if not primarily the motivation.

    That being said, it at least makes logical sense if it's a major problem like cancer and especially if it's one that people don't like to acknowledge like sexual assault. But it just strikes me as someone looking for a public cross to bear when it's a problem that's only ever affected 500 people worldwide. Let's focus on getting people's attention on things like poverty before we worry about awareness of something that affects 0.000007% of the population.

    Then again, she could also have been misquoted or taken out of context as news outlets are often wont to do.

    God forbid you have to actually be a real parent and not push the bundle of oops I didn't pull out on someone else amiright?? ;)
  • I literally have this.  It bites.
  • I am green with envy, as I also have a 1 month old and 3 other school age mini mes. I let the wife have overnight off. I work afternoon/evening, then watch and feed little guy overnight, until it's time to drive kids to school, then 3 hours sleep before work starts..... and repeat.... so literally exactly the opposite of what this girl has.

    She probably doesn't have a day job and mom's getting nervous.
  • dv-ous: 2wolves: So she's a cat?

    *shakes fist @ 2wolves*


    That synchronous post was pure magic.
  • So you are into dead chicks but are tired of the hassle of warming them up beforehand ?

    Man do I have your dream girl.
  • As someone with a lesser condition (hypersomnulescence) and having friends with narcolepsy, I can relate.

    The stimulants used for treatment have caused critical hypertensive issues requiring their own management. As a 36 year old father, finding the right balance between being functionally alert & the risk having a stroke is a weird conversation to have with the doc.

    I can assure you, sleeping for 14 hours and still being under a constant state of sleep deprevation is not pleasant.
  • Guilty about too much sleep?  Please.  If I could have a power from any video game, it would be to sleep 8 hours on a bed and wake up feeling refreshed.

    If we're going with video game rules, you also wake up with full hit points. Doesn't matter if you dragged yourself into bed with two broken limbs and one good sneeze away from death - you'll wake up fresh as a daisy.
  • fusillade762: I'm the typical mum

    FAKE. No woman from Wyoming is going to call herself "mum".


    I was going to post this.  Mum...wtf.  Go back to the UK.

    Given the delusions, I imagine running a business would be hard.
  • I have noticed that these rare diseases only seem to affect the "beautiful people" and not us uggos.
  • I have 3 kids under 6.  What is this "sleep" you speak of?

  • little big man: fusillade762: I'm the typical mum

    FAKE. No woman from Wyoming is going to call herself "mum".

    That's funny, I was going to say the same thing - at the end they cite a NYP version of the article that has "mom" in it:

    I keep wanting to buy that book just to see how craptastic and unrealistic it is.
  • jsmilky: U sleep too much, said my truck driver trainer.

    Three hours is too much!


    You needed to hand your Trainer that little green book that is in every truck and advise him to familiarize himself with the 11/14 and 10 hour rules set by FMCSA.
    If you cause an accident when driving over hours, it's your ass that goes to prison. Not your Trainer's.
  • She's from Wyoming, what's she going to miss?
