    I would appreciate it if anyone could suggest a way for me to stay awake all night so I can watch it at 4AM. I tend to fall asleep quite easily even if I don’t want to when I’m trying watch YouTube in bed. :/

      Mountain Dew. Don’t drink it, stick some in a syringe and blast it straight into your heart. Results may vary.

        WHAT THE HECK?
        I’m not infecting my body or anything like that thanks.
        I seriously hope you’re joking.

        • Sean Michael-Patrick Thompson

          It may infect your body, but Mountain Dew is great for your soul.

          • Peace Boy

            I don’t want to take extreme methods thank you.
            Also, you said syringe… I hate needles.

    • Mountain dew guy was kidding, you don’t inject a soda into your blood stream, lol.

      That being said, the answer is simple – don’t stay up late. Go to bed early, set your alarm, wake up at 4am and have that be how you start your day.

        How early would you suggest? I have college and I don’t get back until 5:15 then I have dinner at about 7:00 usually.

    8pm, huh. Well, at least it’s not happening first thing in the morning.
