Some people wake up the moment they hear someone stir. Others sleep like a rock through absolutely anything. The noises and commotion that a heavy sleeper sleeps through is next-level weird, but it can also be a weirdly good trait to have.


u/anarachelb asked: Deep sleepers, what have you slept through?

Dang, Grandma.

My grandmother was staying at my house and one night, she got up to get some water, and fell and broke her hip. I slept through the ambulance arriving to pick her up.

Don't blame them.

A fire alarm. My parents thought I had died when they got out of the house and I wasn't there.

Now THAT'S a heavy sleeper.

A tornado. I woke up and my neighbor's roof was gone.

He must've been really tired.

I think the all-time champion was a guy in a motel near Columbus, Ohio back in the '70's. The after a tornado went through the western suburbs, the police were going through the wreckage of the motel, and in what was left of a corner room that had two walls and the roof blown away, they found a guy in the bed. At first they thought he was dead, then they heard him snoring.

How does that even happen?

A nurse was stunned to find me sleeping while I was in labor. She woke me up to tell me so. Apparently me falling asleep triggered some alarm on one of the machines they had me hooked up to (my heart rate and pulse ox changed or something).

I was a bit miffed, because it was like 4am, and I was very tired.

Scary.

My friend slept through his wife beginning labor. She was screaming and shaking him, and then screaming in pain. He wouldn't wake up.

She called the non emergency line to ask for help, and they finally woke him up so he could take her to the hospital.

Late night craziness.

A car hit our house when I was fourteen. It happened at about 2:30am, and the cops estimated the driver (quite drunk) was doing more than 80mph through our subdivision at the time.

There was the impact, the damage to the house, shattering windows, screaming, shouts from the neighbors, staircase charges of my siblings, sirens, everything.

I would have slept through until morning if my sister hadn't woken me telling me I didn't want to miss this.

Hope a fire never actually happens.

When I was a kid my mom accidentally set off the fire alarms and couldn't get them to shut off for like ten minutes and was running around, getting pissed off, yelling up a storm and I slept through all of it.

Yikes.

Went to another university to participate in a competition. The organizers accommodated us in the university hostel only. After settling down, the people I was sharing my room went out while I decided to sleep.

When I woke up, one of them was back. He told me there was short circuit in the air conditioner and the room was filling with smoke when he arrived. The fire alarm was also ringing. He tried waking me up too.

That's insane.

From what I was told:

When my mom was younger, she was sleeping on the sofa in the living room which was located next to the kitchen. My Grandma decided to try and cook a live chicken. (She has never done it before). She was reading instructions on how to do it as she was preparing it. The only problem is that chickens can still survive for a short time after you cut their head off.

After she chopped the head off, the headless chicken went crazy. My grandma was yelling, the chicken was getting blood everywhere, and my mom slept through the whole thing.

Arrests were made on Wednesday night when an appearance by Ann Coulter turned into a protest rally.

The protest lasted for over four hours, outside of Wheeler Hall at UC Berkley where she was scheduled to give a speech on immigration.

Coulter is a notoriously conservative media pundit.

The event, entitled "Adios, America!" was a discussion on the "current United States immigration system and the dangers of mass immigration," according to Daily Beast.

She is known for spewing anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant rhetoric, so it is no surprise that the talk included more of same ideas.

Skylar Schoemig of The Daily Californian Tweeted out quotes from the speech.



Barricades and police in riot gear guarded the building as Coulter was escorted into the event.


Demonstrators chanted "Ann Coulter go away, immigrants are here to stay" and "this is what democracy looks like" as she walked in.


Protestors also formed a human chain to prevent ticket holders from entering the event.



Moments after Coulter entered the Wheeler Hall auditorium, an attendee called her a "Nazi."

That woman was Brandy Youssif, a student from Berkeley City College.

Youssif was quickly handcuffed and dragged out of the room. According to police and school officials, she was one of six or seven people who were arrested.

Newsweek reported that she was given assault charges, with her bail set to $60,000.

Refuse Fascism, the protest's organizer, is calling for Youssif's release.

Atlas Winfrey, a Refuse Fascism protest organizer, estimated that 2,000 people at the protest.

Winfrey believes that more protests will take place in response to the arrests that were made.

It's not the first time that Coulter's presence has lead to a protest at the college.

In 2017, UC Berkley cancelled her scheduled appearance on the campus after officials feared they wouldn't be able to secure the speech site from demonstrators.

People on Twitter expressed confusion over why she was invited back to the school.





Others praised the students for taking a stand against Coulter and UC Berkeley.


Jack, a UC Berkeley Freshman, expressed his disappointment over the event to Berkleyside.

"It's even more appalling because today is Transgender Day of Remembrance. I'm here to represent my community as a queer and trans student. It's appalling that the administration would even consider having someone with extremely hateful rhetoric."

As of yet, UC Berkeley has not made a statement about the controversy.
