007 Paintball Alarm

THis is a slight variation on the 007 Alarm Clock Discussed Here Earlier.

I have seen several alarm clocks presented here at the bakery. The ones that interest me the most are the ones where you have to reach some level of awakeness, point a gun at a target and hit it to turn off the alarm.

Seems to me, though, that the gun is pointing in the wrong direction.

Imagine...

The alarm sounds. You have 15 seconds to get up and get over to the other side of the room to turn it off. Else, you have several dozen high velocity paintballs headed in your direction.

RINNNNNNGGGG!!

"Let's see. Should I sleep in this morning??"

bap! bap! bap! bap! bap!bap! bap! bap! bap! bap! bap! bap! bap! bap! bap!bap! bap! bap! bap! bap! bap! bap! bap! bap! bap! bap! bap! bap! bap! bap!

"OUCH!! That really hurt. i'm never going to sleep in again!! THANKS 007 Paintball Alarm!!!"

       Hehe, I think this could be bad. At first.   

       Nobody likes getting hit by paintballs. You'd start getting up on time, wouldn't you, after one or two days? I would!   

       Maybe not paintballs, though, as that would be messy. Maybe just large BBs. But I do like the idea of having to, like, roll off your bed, across the room, leap up, hit the alarm, save yourself. [+]
