This Is a New One…



According to the medical journal “Sleep Medicine” there have been records of people emailing in there sleep…

closequote The mails themselves were perhaps not up to the woman’s waking standard; each was in a random mix of upper and lower case characters, badly formatted and containing odd expressions. One read: “Come tomorrow and sort this hell hole out. Dinner and drinks, 4.pm. Bring wine and caviar only.” Another said simply: “What the…”

The writers of the report have dubbed this new variation of sleepwalking ‘zzz-mailing’. They say: “We believe writing an email after turning the computer on, connecting to the Internet and remembering the password displayed by our patient is novel. To our knowledge this type of complex behaviour requiring coordinated movements has not been reported before in sleepwalking. She was shocked when she saw these emails, as she did not recall writing them. She did not have any history of night terr ors or sleepwalking as a child.”

Unlike simple sleepwalking, they argue, the activities the woman engaged in required complex behaviour and coordinated movement, as well being able to remember her login details. She had no memory of the events next day. It’s thought that the somnambulistic episode may have been triggered by prescript ion medication.closequote

I’m not really surprised by this one. People do everything from eat and have sex to drive their cars and murder people in their sleep. Actually, this one time I was sleeping over at my friend’s house and in the middle of the night I awoke to find him not in his room. I decided to go exploring and find him and just as I walked past his sister’s room I heard her scream “hey, what are you doing?!”. To our surprise, he was peeing on his sister’s shoes in his sleep.

It was hilarious…
