Out of the Blue

Okay, this alarm clock idea is pretty damned clever (thanks reddit via GameSetWatch). Here's the description of how this works: "If you hit the user-defined snooze limit, the alarm sounds and will not turn off until you have cleared 4 lines in Tetris. That’s right, you have to prove to the clock that you are awake and coherent before it will shut off. Technically you can silence the alarm for a 30 second period so you can focus on Tetris, but that’s all the break you get."

No matter what time I set it for I usually wake up 10 minutes earlier. ...

I pretty much have to do 24/7 support calls for one of our servers. My calls were usually at 3AM.

After a particularly bad couple of weeks of calls, for about the next couple of months my body "woke up" by itself around 3AM without an alarm or phonecall. Of course that stunk because I had to go back to sleep so I could wake up at 6:30.

That never happened to me before, and this is coming from a guy that needs 3-4 snooze alarms in the morning.
