Do you know a deep sleeper?


Some people are really good at sleeping. When they close their eyes for the night, nothing gets in the brain's way of recharging. Literally, nothing. Snoozing through the likes of natural disasters and loud emergencies can be dangerous...

When Redditor u/anarachelb asked, "Deep sleepers, what have you slept through?", very lucky people were able to look back with humor on shocking moments and loud sounds that didn't disturb their slumbers.

20. They missed a "polite" wake up call

"I (female) was staying the weekend at my friends house (male), we both had fallen asleep and I figured I'd wake him up in a polite manner (catch my drift). He rolled over in his sleep while my mouth was full, had no recollection when he woke up that it had even happened"

19. A crime in progress

"A car robbery that happened out side the bedroom window in the room I was in (not our car)"

17. The earth shaking didn't bother them

"Earthquake as kid, woke up in my mom's lap. Kinda just woke up a little.Then I just yeeted back to slumber."

16. The house was falling apart

"I've slept through the ceiling falling down in my home. I was a kid when this happened, what I'm told is there were some air pockets between the actual ceiling and the plaster and after a year or so of the house being built the plaster felt in one of the rooms. My parents say they thought the house was falling apart because of the noise, and I just slept through that."

15. The biggest firework show

"A firework factory explosion."

14. An actual break in

"My housemate came back with a few friends yelling and screaming at the window. Apparently someone was breaking into the house and I was passed out. There were screws dropped on the outside from where he was unfastening the window locks. I had no idea until he came into my room yelling at me that I didn't stop it."

13. Hotels are so relaxing though...

"A fire truck arriving at our hotel in the middle of the night because of a faulty fire alarm."

12. The smoothie part though...

"My husband was going to stay at a friend's place for the night, but decided to come home instead last minute. I slept through him opening the front door, using his computer for a while and making a frickin fruit smoothie with a blender. I only woke up when he came into the room to go to bed himself"

11. Poor pup couldn't catch a break

"When I was younger I had a tiny closet in my room with a door that opened inward. The dog got in there after I'd fallen asleep and got locked inside and started barking loud. The neighbors heard it and came over to help free the dog. They used a hacksaw to cut a hole in the door panel and they got the dog out about two hours later."

10. Mother nature's most destructive creation

"A tornado. I woke up and my neighbor's roof was gone"

9. Even a fire alarm couldn't disturb them

Giphy

"A fire alarm. My parents thought I had died when they got out of the house and I wasn't there."

8. Poor grandma...

"My grandmother was staying at my house and one night, she got up to get some water, and fell and broke her hip. I slept through the ambulance arriving to pick her up."

7. This huge disaster 

"A house blowing up and then the bull dozers taking the rest down. This happened in the 80s in Philly, so it was row homes. A guy took himself hostage? He was threatening to blow himself up. He had the gas on and was holding a lighter. I guess they didnt think he would go thru with it because a kid in the house nextdoor was burried in the rubble. He was found alive a day or two later. They deemed him the miracle baby."

6. Another sleepy tornado survivor 

"I think the all-time champion was a guy in a motel near Columbus Ohio back in the '70's. A tornado went through the western suburbs, the police were going through the wreckage of the motel, and in what was left of a corner room that had two walls and the roof blown away, they found a guy in the bed. At first they thought he was dead, then they heard him snoring."

5. Giving birth is tiring

Giphy

"A nurse was stunned to find me sleeping while I was in labor. She woke me up to tell me so. Apparently me falling asleep triggered some alarm on one of the machines they had me hooked up to (my heart rate and pulse ox changed or something). I was a bit miffed, because it was like 4am, and I was very tired."

4. What a way to miss breakfast

"Multiple mortar attacks while deployed. Woke up one morning to get ready to go get chow and was confused why everyone was eating MREs...our dining area had been obliterated, maybe 200yds away from my billet"

3. This large impact on their house

"A car hit our house when I was fourteen. It happened at about 2:30am, and the cops estimated the driver (quite drunk) was doing more than 80mph through our subdivision at the time.

There was the impact, the damage to the house, shattering windows, screaming, shouts from the neighbors, staircase charges of my siblings, sirens, everything.

I would have slept through until morning if my sister hadn't woken me telling me I didn't want to miss this."

2. Shaken, not stirred

"The '94 Northridge earthquake, less than 15 miles from the epicenter. I was shaken, but not stirred."

People Break Down Which TV Shows No One Else Seems To Remember

As a kid, I remember being obsessed (like obsessed) with David the Gnome and his fox Swift. I was tuned in daily to watch the adventures, get all misty eyed for the hurt animals the gnomes saved, and sob in abject wonder when the gnomes finally lived all 400 years of their gnome life and transitioned into the trees that make up the woods they live in.

The trees are their ancestors, y'all! The treeees! They protect the trees because they're family. Trees grow intertwined because they were so in love when they were gnomes.

Fam! This show was everything ... except memorable for other people, because I was in my 30s talking to someone from another country before I met the first person who remembered this show.

Which, honestly, is kind of insulting to gnomes and trees.

People Describe The Oddest Jobs They've Ever Had

Working in entertainment production is one of those things that sounds awesome - and make no mistake, it is.

It's just that it's also one of those jobs that means when your partner calls you at 1 in the morning to ask where you are, and you tell them you're out measuring lemons for Beyoncé... it's not a euphemism and it's not that weird.

Queen Bey wants a bowl of 15 evenly sized lemons for her dressing room, Queen Bey gets a bowl of 15 evenly sized lemons for her dressing room.

And because catering runners care about doing their jobs well and usually have a multi-tool on them anyway, Beyoncé is getting the sexiest, most uniformly sized, lemons we can find.

Men Share The Biggest Downsides To Being Male

In spite of considerable work being, and progress, made to change things, it remains a fact that men have countless advantages in modern society.

In addition to not having to deal with several biological issues all women must endure, men still seem to have the upper hand when applying for positions of power, or being trusted with major responsibilities.

As a result, those who do not identify as men often roll their eyes when men of any age offer even the slightest complaint.

Which doesn't mean that plenty of men still maintain that there are definite downsides to carrying those he/him pronouns.
