J-MON Posted September 25, 2008 Report Share Posted September 25, 2008 LIFE SAVING TIP Anybody ever been at the controls of a vehicle and you find yourself fighting to stay awake ? Maybe even doing the infamous 'head-nod' going in and out of consciousness ? Dangerous situation to say the least and one that most of us have (not admittedly) been in - right ? Wrong ! It's happened to you or someone you know = fact. While driving > You've tried: - rolling down the window - turning up the music - pinching / slapping yourself - maybe even stopping to throw cold water on your face While Flying > You've tried: - turning up radio, engaging in communications - breathing excercises - what else <----- you tell me Believe it or not (don't and do the research yourself [read:google]) that all of these methods have been tried and tested by multiple universities recently and ALL OF THEM FAILED to actually stimulate a person enough to keep them awake while they were operating a (simulated) vehicle. The ONLY method to actually stimulate a person enough to stay awake was this: CHEWING GUM The way it works is this; it tricks the body into thinking your eating and therefore your brain releases chemicals that will stimulate you and keep you awake and alert enough to at least finish your trip and get home safely. <please pass this on to friends, family, co-workers> Take great care, J-MON Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
