I think I may have come up with an idea:

Chrononautic Exxon:


Sleep in 3 different days within the span of 24 hours.


Less difficult than it seems at first glance, more difficult than it seems after a bit of pondering.

Go to sleep before midnight and wake up after midnight. Repeat the following night, one time zone east of where you began.

Yeah, that's how it works. It still involves some effort on the tasker's part, but....

Should we make it 4 days, then?

That just involves doing something like that around the international date line, though I haven't bothered to work out the details.

Bump it up to five days, though, and it would have to be worth about twenty times as many points.

Form a team of people that you only know over the internet. Engage in well planned naps together.

I'm picturing mods bored to sleep.

You wouldn't believe how difficult it is to find one lone photo of someone in 60's hair on a bed in any state. WTF?

I was thinking something a lot more along these lines.

EDIT: Wait, I want to change my answer- THIS is so totally way more exactly what I meant.

60's?

Hair?

Bed?

Okay, I gotta admit, I have no idea for a task. But I like the
name, and I figure it might be an inspiration for the mods.


We've got a word for that around here. It's "you know what to do."

Here are a few more.

HC: Construct a medical device which causes snoring in individuals who do not snore. Market your device to the public.

Equiv: Record the snores of a wide range of sleeping subjects and correlate snore characteristics with demographic data. Discuss your results and the implications sociology and criminology.

UA: Enable a sleeping person to create a work of art.

Biome: Build an underwater raft.

Hey I'm actually sorta thinking about doing that biome one, for a different task.

Depending on how you define underwater.

I've always felt that—in a gravity environment, anyways—"under" isn't quite as subjective a definition as...let's say... "is" is. I mean, it's either under or it's ...not. So how *I* define it or how *C.M.* defines it aren't really... these things don't really matter.

True, but there really is a gray area in "underwater raft", albeit a small one.

By the way, "you will know what to do" doesn't really work in this one because although there are many possible things you may choose to do for it you won't actually know what to do at all.

I'm pretty sure that's what "you know what to do" means here anyway.

Credit for creation of this task goes to Burn Unit, not me- for those who don't feel like parsing this long conversation thread.

For this task, I took inspiration from the Sleep Time app, which tracks your sleep cycles and can wake you up while in your lightest sleep phase. It does this by using the accelerometer in your phone, to track how much you are moving while you sleep....

Whilst my room mate sleeps I record his snores and mid-dream laughter, then him and I slice the tracks up in Audacity. The snippets of dreamspeak he emits is hilarious.
