Nap time

I think what the law school needs is a room; a dark room, with 20 cots in it, and 20 pillows, for law students that just want to take a nap sometime during the day, a la hospitals or fire stations. I've seen the people who've fallen asleep on their books in library carrels, and it always appears that when they awake, they are going to be horrified to realize they've drooled through about half of their casebook, and will have weird impression lines on their face for the rest of the day from where their head was pressed into their laptop.

But everytime I suggest this to a fellow classmate, the reaction is the same:

"Yeah! That's a great idea! Oh wait. No. People would have too much sex in there. It would be gross. Nevermind. That's a horrible idea."

So, to you people who awake from library naps with muscle aches in your necks from the weird angle you slept at, to you people who had camera phone pictures taken of you passed out among the stacks, to you people who honestly just could have used a little nap room--you only have your own horny classmates to blame.

Yeah, cuz napping would make the horror that is law school that much better.

The obvious solution is to get nap rooms AND sex rooms.

You know in New York City they have these things that are like nap buildings where you pay to go and lay in a hygienic bed area for whatever amount of time you paid for. European airports have them too. But I'd pay for a sex room too... to avoid getting caught in an elevator or something..

Perhaps that's why whorehouses were invented in the first place :)

There's a bit of a compromise - I've taken deliberate naps on the couches in the library. My favorite spot is the 4th floor "no laptop" zone, mainly because no one is ever there.

Son of a bitch, someone beat me to it... Oh well, I will say it anyway--I think instead of nap rooms (an excellent idea), they need "conjugal" break rooms. I am gonna be tired any way you slice it, but at least I could be tired with a shit-eating grin for the rest of the day.
