The Critical 'I'

Read. React. Repeat.

Trouble getting to sleep? Join the club. Those borderline narcoleptics out there just can't fathom the allure of the night, the lingering mental and physical stress, or the dozens of other reasons for not surrendering to the Sandman--and even when you do, giving him only six or so hours each night.

Still, if the sleep deprivation thing is getting old, you can opt for Matsushita Electric Works' $30,000 "sleep room", loaded with massage machines and soothing audiovisuals that are guaranteed to have you snoring within a half-hour.

Thirty grand? Hell, I'd rather stay up and party.
