A most alarming little gadget…
Blog Guy, I’m a high school student doing a report, and I need your help.
Oh sure, I’m always eager to help with homework assignments. Do you want it single-spaced or double-spaced? You want me to misspell some words to make it look real?
My report is called “Alarm Clocks Around the World,” and I was hoping you could share the most interesting alarm you know about.
That would have to be a Cambodian clock that is marketed as the “Short Fuse, No Snooze.”
This ingenious device, shown here, connects a normal clock to a series of rocket propelled grenades which go off one at a time starting 30 seconds after the first alarm.
That’s an interesting idea, but I don’t think it would work on me. I’m a very heavy sleeper.
Not to worry. The third rocket is chained to your ankle.
