    US military tries using small electric jolts to keep soldiers awake

    Soldiers don't have many options for overcoming sleep deprivation outside of a good cup of coffee. If the Air Force Research Laboratory's experiments prove successful, though, troops may rely on tiny jolts of electricity to stay alert. By using a mild current to stimulate key parts of the brain, the military's scientists can keep people awake and focused for long periods -- up to 30 hours in recent trials. The existing technique produces modest side effects like skin irritation and short headaches, and it's unlikely to reach civilians any time soon. However, a refined version could eventually prove crucial to drone pilots and other warriors who can't afford to take naps during crucial missions.

I think it's an opportunity to be independent minded. We are about 99% [the same on issues]." Ron Paul

    One can imagine where this will go.


    Remember sometime after SWC dronebag did dumb surge, supposed ring leader of the The Kill Team (hat killed inncocent civilians including children/babies going door to door in the middle of night and then burnt their bodies) had used reason that he had not slept for days.

    MIC is insane.

    People need to sleep.
    THEN, if the job is still that boring, it should just go away.
    Go home and turn the light out.
