FML - The follow-up
PIGaming Say more :
Hey all, im OP (although as my first time ever commenting, I hope this actually works!) Of course, in the end, my daughter fell asleep. although it was around 1am, a time I thought no five year old was physically capable of acheiving. You might say it was almost worse the next day, as she was very grumpy and tired! I forbid my son from attending a party (supposedly the 'party of the year'), and have spoken to his school who are arranging a meeting with him to discuss ways of bettering his home

That's what I thought. Or OP should sit her daughter down and explain everything - saying that she can fall asleep and nothing will happen and tell her that it was just a joke.

You can't get brain damage though if you don't get enough sleep your brain starts acting like your drunk... You judgment gets worse... And at an extreme you start to hallucinate... But it is all reversible so nothing permanent

It's not totally reliable, but it's not too bad - good enough to stand comparison with the Britannica. The was a test done, and WP had, on average, 4 errors for every 3 that EB had. Just don't use it as your sole source of info - use it for a quick heads-up, then look at the article sources and their background.

Unfortunately, medical personal implications keep the myth alive. While I wasn't told point-blank that if my son fell asleep, he would die, I do remember being strongly cautioned not to let him fall asleep for a certain amount of time after the concussion. Imagination runs its course. My assumption is that the sleep to the lay person looks just like unconsciousness and masks other stuff that requires immediate medical attention, but it would have been nice to be told that instead of just leavin

#3 Doc's right, but they do cause memory loss (sometimes permanent) if severe enough. Besides, that's just abuse, I worry about your kids (if you ever have them. Oh God, Timmy forgot to take the trash out again, I guess he loses his left hand this time. Pay back's a bitch.

Sorry guys, I didn't know that that was a myth... My bad. I got a concussion a few years ago and I wasn't allowed to sleep for 24 hours cause they thought I'd die in my sleep. And no, I don't actually recommend op giving his son a concussion, it was a joke. A lousy one yes, but I'm never going to say I'm funny haha

Whether you think it was clever or not he still mildly traumatised a little girl when she is completely innocent seeing as it was the parent he wanted revenge on, and the parent that grounded him .

Ah, this brings back memories. Though my sleepless nights were more due to Freddy Krueger than anything else. I'd wear my shoes to bed so I could run faster if he started chasing me in my dreams. I was a genius.

One time in college, I had a dream that I was being chased by Freddy Krueger. Toward the end I started fighting him and I woke up kicking the concrete wall next to my bed. I believe this was soon after I purchased a Nightmare on Elm Street DVD set at Wally World. What a coincidence!
