Health, sleep and restraint

You know ducks sleep with one eye open? Well it seems humans can sleep upright! Is it safe? ?Is it recommended? who knows. Ask these crazy monks:

Music is good for you, it's official! Thank chuffs for that. I'm going to see AC/DC on Friday. No wait...

Restraining techniques can lead to broken limbs. Prison chiefs are now looking at how staff restrain inmates at young offenders' institutes.

Hear Brian Caton Prison Officers Association general secretary and ex-judoka talk about how restraint can sometimes lead to broken bits. Interestingly he admits that prior to the current restraint policy they would rely on "a mattress and a fight"...

Why on earth would anyone want to sleep sitting up if they didn't need to? One of the great pleasures in life is getting into a warm, cosy soft bed at the end of a hard day and resting your weary limbs zzzzz.....

Enjoy your AC/DC concert on Friday, but if your hoping it will lower your blood pressure....
