Possible Cure to The Snooze Button Epidemic?

This, my friends is the SnuzNLuz. This genius little item was thought up by the great minds at ThinkGeek as an April Fools Joke but I support it in entirety. Waking up is a trying task for just about every single one of us, always looking for an incentive or easy way of getting out of your warm fortress. Well this is where the SnuzNLuz steps in. Basically it connects vio WiFi to your online bank account (yes, your real people money), and donates from YOUR account to an organization that you hate whenever the snooze button is pressed. Thus, bringing justice to the saying  "You Snooze, You Lose"





So, basically this was a joke by the website which I realized halfway through writing this. But this raises the question. Would you buy such a clock if it was in existence? Knowing that if you hit that snooze button you would be loosing money by increments of ten to organizations such as the GOP, PETA, or ACLU? I think it would be enough to get me out of bed. So joke or not I am behind these things being actually put into manufacturing.

On the topic of waking up, what is your morning song that you put on? It can be whatever whether it's driving to work, showering, getting dressed, or even waking up to as an alarm. I like to listen to music as I get dressed I found that waking up to certain songs made me resent them in the long run. So in the comments let me know your tips to getting up and music for the morning. That's all for now, and here's my personal song i've been listening to the past few weeks.

  1. That's a terrible idea. I would loose so much money. Following.

  2. Ha, your next blog post should deal with your feud with the ACLU.

    My morning song is New Morning by Bob Dylan

  3. I never hit the snooze button, 'cause I don't have an alarm clock. I tend to just wake up on time on my own.

    Also, my morning/wake up music is usually something classical, since that's what I usually fall asleep to.

  4. Sounds like a great way to make sure you wake up...

  5. haha. I got the joke. I don't usually hit the snooze button because I get up as late as I possibly can. I Put on "Hit the Switch" by Bright Eyes. Not the most cheerful song to listen to... but oh well

    I have an alarm clock that has a target on it. Alarm sounds, and you need to pick up the gun remote, aim, fire, and hit the bullseye before the alarm turns off. It's practically impossible to get back to sleep after that.

  14. haha, that clock is actually a really good idea. probablty a market for it too! new follower

  15. That would get me out of bed, but I would never buy the clock, I usually wake up to morning radio shows.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Wow I could really use one of those to help me wake up on time. Either that or it would end up making me really really poor

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wow, thats a solid idea. Although I'm not too sure they'd have much luck getting anything from my bank account...

    ReplyDelete
  18. As much as I hate losing money, this is a brilliant idea! I don't know how many times I've been late for work or skipped breakfast because of that snooze button, its a curse. This is awesome my friend.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Alright, the snuznluz is an incredible idea. Too bad it is a prank, but still, I think I would buy it! Too bad being lazy never cost so much before.

    ReplyDelete
  20. This is a great idea... Unfortunately I have grown immune to the alarm, to the point where I don't even hit snooze anymore... My roomate doesn't take quite kindly to it... lol

    ReplyDelete
  21. All I know is that I donate £10 to the GOP, PETA, and ACLU on a monthly basis. If I could do this as well as sleep in... count me in!

    ReplyDelete
  22. That's actually a pretty good choice for a morning song. No idea what I would pick, never thought of it.

    ReplyDelete
  23. this idea is epic, i always use snooze to the max limit. not good for work.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow, that clock is the most awesome thing ever !

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh god I could never buy that. I use my snooze button toooo much

    ReplyDelete
  26. Wow that's genius! If there's a money incentive involved who wouldn't wake up on time.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Holy cow I seriously need that alarm clock, every morning I click the snooze button at least 5 times. If that was made I would easily wake up the first time.

    ReplyDelete
  28. wow thats so cool!! idk if itd get it though... kinda painful hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  31. That looks like a great idea and I don't use music to wake up(i prefer the most annoying sound imaginable) but the music AFTER i wake is most definitely The Yoshida Brothers, more specifically "Le aquile non volano a stormi" great song

    ReplyDelete
  32. This is absolutely hilarious! i would be up in an instant because i'm a cheap bastard lol

    ReplyDelete
  33. HA! That's awesome! I wonder if you can program in your own organizations to donate to.

    ReplyDelete
  34. i honestly need to get something like that so i stop hitting the snooze button and going back to sleep

    ReplyDelete
  35. Great idea! I woke up 20 minutes late today...I would love one of these.

  40. I think the GOP has enough money already without them needing to sell this to Democrats :p

    ReplyDelete
  41. No, because I will go bankrupt on day 2

    ReplyDelete
  42. Sublime is the only think I can take in the morning pretty much

  45. I can't live in my house without music or something playing, it's just too quiet. In the morning I start off with something soft like Michael Buble or Josh Groban. Then I move on to Rock music like Three Days Grace for when I get pumped up.

    ReplyDelete

  65. my cure for the snooze button is setting 7 alarms a few minutes apart, or setting 3 different alarm systems. i will not wake up if i don't want to otherwise.
