We have three words to describe this thing -- Brilliant! Ingenious! Evil! If you ever have trouble getting out of bed, your troubles are over. (Or just beginning, if you want to look at it that way.) Here's how it works: You set the Flying Alarm Clock as you would any standard alarm clock. When the alarm goes off, the propeller on top of the clock starts to spin and actually TAKES OFF INTO THE AIR! "Cute, but so what?" you say with a sneer. But hold on... You can't just turn the alarm off and go back to sleep. The alarm will not turn off until you put the propeller back in its place. So you have to get your lazy ass out of bed and search for it. Once its airborne, it can fly anywhere in the room. Some mornings it may be easy to locate, and other mornings it can be a real challenge. When you stick the propeller back into the clock, the alarm goes off. But by that time, you're probably awake and ready to start your day. You've heard the expression "Time flies" Well with the Flying Alarm Clock, it really does!
