I can, and have, slept through earthquakes.
And a big thank you to all of our Patreon patrons for making this extra comic possible!
OMG I am your wife %99 of the time. I even sleep with a pair of tonfas beside my bed (I didn’t get as far as the boken in Shotokan Karate-do.) Especially when I move to a new place, the tonfas are in my hands before I’m even awake. Thankfully, 99% of the time I’ve been over-reacting…except that one time and they scrambled off pretty quick! A lady can never go wrong with a pair of non-lethal weapons…
That’s kind of awesome, honestly. Except the stressful parts.
Heh, I used to sleep with a crowbar. I might switch to a bokken though once I finish carving this one.
I love you guys. 🙂 Highlight of my day!
The bottom one would be me BEFORE having my daughter…the top…after.
Well, except for those times where my body initiates shut down mode…then my other half has to check me for a pulse.
Working on new shading techniques? Looks good, whatever it is.
Yeah,I’m pretty much you. You could march a band through my room and I’d roll over, pull the pillow over my head, and continue to sleep. The only exception is that apparently when the phone rings, I can answer the phone and hold a perfectly lucid and reasonable conversation while still fully asleep … and not remember it when I wake up.
I do this all the time. I’ll answer the phone or if my boyfriend talks to me I’ll answer him as well. This conversation happens all the time:
BF – “Hey, remember X today.”
me – “Yes, remember X.”
BF – “Are you awake?”
me – “Of course I’m awake!”
BF – “Really?”
me – “Hehe, no.”
Soooo, apparently I’m a liar when I’m talking in my sleep. Note: I never have any memory of these conversations. The best I can do is check my phone call history when I’m actually awake……
I’m a weird mix. If I know that I might die and there’s nothing I can do about it (Tornado, tail end of a Hurricane, etc..) I sleep like a baby. If I hear a sound and think it’s someone coming to kill me, I’m away and at the door screaming.
I’ve slept through fire alarms, earthquakes, people chatting outside my room but the second my phone makes the tiniest whisper I’m alert.
For a brief while one winter, we had a mouse that would visit our bedroom every day, almost like clockwork, around 3am. It woke me up every single time. Mice are the cliche for being as quiet as, and yet that’s what woke me out of an otherwise dead sleep. *shrugs*
Well, it COULD be that weird little red-eyed goat that normally likes to sleep on your side. Little bugger could be plotting a hostile take-over of your bed.
Or it just got back from a long night of clubbing and tried to use stealth mode.
I used to be that sensitive too, I told people I could “hear bugs breathing” and it would keep me up. I wore earplugs at night just so I wouldn’t wake myself up every couple of hours. I don’t usually have to do that anymore unless i”m in a strange house or a hotel or something. But man for awhile there at home I swear my middle name was “what was that?”
Sleeping through earthquakes is fun, at least until you wake up and find out a lamp almost decapitated you.
lol Yeah, I’m about like Kay too. The cat can walk by my door outside it and I’ll snap awake. Ted’s the other end, dead as a doornail, doesn’t hear a thing. I could yell for him and he’d be oblivious.
Oh my. I have also slept through a number of earthquakes, that ended up rolling me out of my bed and smashing my head against a hard wooden corner. I didn’t think another person could sleep so deeply. Comrades in ZZZees.
I remember when I was at a family camp reunion, my cousins were playing slenderman in my cabin while I was asleep and told me they were screaming a lot and I never woke up. But sometimes I think my sleep sensitivity is random.
Omg. I once fell off my bed and slept for like a few hours. It was like 3 feet from the ground. Another time, I had vomitted on the wall after like eating something rancid. By the time I woke up, it had dried. Is there something wrong with me?
My fiancé says I could sleep through being murdered, lol.
Lol! I’m totally you xD.. I have slept trough a fucking hurricane, and when I woke up asked when we were gonna evacuate, they told me we didn’t have to anymore as it’d pasted over us already. I slept through a tree falling on our roof once before too!
But, the minute someone opens my bedroom door, and I’m up like the sun LOL
Yes! What is it about doors? That’s the only other thing that wakes me!
I haven’t had a peaceful night of sleep since 1997. I wish I could sleep like A. It looks so restful.
That bottom one is totally me. I can’t say I’ve slept through an earthquake, since I’m not really in a place that has them much. I have slept through 4 fire engines blaring 2 houses down from me, and I used to live very close to train tracks that had trains running through several times during the night.
The sound of a cat puking will wake me right the hell up.
As a kid I slept like Stiffler. That changed around puberty and by the beginning of college I was more like K. Now I’m a fairly light sleeper but not quite that bad, unless I’ve watched a zombie movie recently. :b
Speaking of sleep, is it weird to say that you two have been the central theme of two dreams since I started following your comics? (And tumblrs, so I don’t have to check the sites for comic updates.) I don’t remember any details but I just thought of that.
I most CERTAINLY am low on that scale! (So my wife tells me)
I think my brain decided that there would be A List of Things to Wake Up For (e.g. my phone text message alert) and that everything I didn’t add to the list didn’t count. Once I was on a camping trip, woke up after a solid night’s sleep to discover that the grass was wet outside, and wandered over to the picnic tables … where the other campers were talking about the huge thunderstorm that was so close that the scoutmaster thought lightning might have struck some of our tents.
Hi! I really enjoy your comic and wanted to tell you that sb posted panel from it on tumblr: http://kobiecalogika.tumblr.com/post/80664935984#disqus_thread with no source and even had the guts to put his url on it. I already told the dude to at least properly source it without his url but there was no reply.
I’m quite dangerous when asleep. I have kicked my brothers in places men don’t want to be kicked in. This stuff happens when they TRY to wake me up. I sleep through anything I have slept through a hurricane, I was 8 and did not hear anything. I always tell people not to wake me up cus’ they might get hurt and also, I’m not the person you wanna be around for the first hour I’ve been awake.
Omg this is the portrait of myself (the non-sleeper who painfully tries to sleep with wax earplugs) and my g/f (she touches the mattress-she’s asleep) 😀
I’m on the low end, I’ve crowded my fiance into a foot-wide strip of bed, nearly choked him once, and elbowed his face and other places a couple times. I’ve gotten better, though, but I still reply to texts in my sleep and don’t remember sending them. apparently I talk in my sleep too.
I’m about the same way. I can sleep through fire alarms, even. Back in college, my roommate had to wake me up because the floor above mine in the dormitory someone set a small fire cooking something in their lounge. (Each floor was its own hall, and the lounge had a small kitchenette.)
I’m a terribly light sleeper, but I can’t sleep with earplugs because I’m afraid I will miss something urgent, heh. My former DH could sleep through anything.
I’m such a light sleeper, mainly because I’m so paranoid. I sleep with like three knives right in grabbing reach, two throwing knives, and a dagger. And, not that I’m bragging, but I can throw those pretty damn good.
Oh, and since all I’ve said is about myself, nice comic. Funny as always. 😀
I can relate. I’ve slept through cannon fire… like, actual cannon fire. Right next to me. Long story.
Yeah I’m your wife and my wife is you. Any little noise can wake me up, but my wife slept like a log with me digging through a box in our closet.
I’m like you (once I rolled off the bed while asleep and didn’t wake up), while my paperwall-to-paperwall roomate is like K. With bat hearing. And I’m clumsy. Not a good combination.
Awesome comic, like always. You manage to get a smile out of the simplest things ^__^
My father once slept through a tornado that threw a giant tree through the roof of his house/through the window of the room he was sleeping in. My grandmother was convinced he was dead since he didn’t wake up from it!
