    Nothing. I always wake up between 7 and 8 at the latest without anything to encourage me to do so.

    i alternate between that an "knights of the round table" (monty python) because when i start to get to used to something, in my sleepy stupor i just hit my phone and go back to sleep.

    This morning it was my home phone ringing, my Deputy Manager at work phoning in to tell me I was supposed to be in work 15 minutes ago! lol!

    Usually, though, it's a boat's horn (the Disney Wonder, no less), which is the loudest noise I could find and the one which wakes me the quickest.

    I use a generic alarm from my K800i. It is similar to Eric Prydz - Call On Me. :o:
    is it called motivation?!:p:
    umm for school just the alarm on my bedside clock, if its something special, i use my fone with greeting as the alarm sound.
    sometimes i dont have any sound and it vibrating is enough 2 wake me:rolleyes:

    Haha! Sounds like fun in your house then lol! :laughing:

    I'd love to know how other people in my house react to alarms, but I've always been the last one up for the past few years (I don't do mornings lol!).

    An erection.

    Spoiler:
    Show
    Sorry :rofl:. It had to be done. When you sleep, parasympathetic activity increases, which results in the nitrergic nerves in the penis activating, which causes an erection due to vasodilation of the blood vessels and the pressure on the venous plexus to prevent blood escaping the penis.

    Just in case anyone wanted to know why :p:. I usually wake up to my phone vibrating.

    Just my phone's alarm tone, during term time.

    Otherwise on weekends/holidays my mental clock.
    This.

    My phone's alarm is by far the most effective during term time.

    As in an alarm tone?

    Mine is lost prophets- wake up.

    It wakes me up... and fast. Full volume, Im like :eek: :eek: Ok I'm up:woo: .

    Anyway discuss!
    That bit made me laugh so much, I snorted a little. Reminded me of Lee Evans.

    Anyway, my dad usually wakes me up by doing this stupid knocking on the door 'rhythm' that he has done for the past 10 years. It makes me want to shout at him every single morning; not really the best of wake up calls.
