Tired Of Standing, Or Standing Tired?

When I lived in Tokyo, I’d often see scenes of tired Tokyoites struggling to stay awake during their commute on the metro. It was always amusing to my brother and I to witness some old guy falling asleep and his heading eventually rolling onto the shoulders of the rather young cute girl sat next to him. Only problem was, they were both strangers and she of course was horrified, but being Japanese, was far too polite to say or do anything. I think this added to our amusement of course.

Well, here’s a guy who has taken sleeping on the metro to another level. He has managed to defy gravity and all mother natures natural laws and demonstrated his ability to sleep whilst standing up….well sort of 🙂
