    When my mom told me she was getting me a new alarm clock she said to dump my old one. So the next morning I set it for 6:00 woke up, opened the window, and threw it into the garbage can I placed outside the night before. All from the second story window :D  Good times....goood times.....

    Set mine to AM radio, or a pop music channel. Makes me get the hell up so I'll turn it off

    Mine wouldn't turn off on a Saturday(go figure)so I was disturbed and started banging on it.
    then it fell off my bookshelf(I slept on a 1 person bunkbed back then)and hit the ground.

    I have an old cell phone from 3 years ago, in which I had downloaded the noise that R2D2 makes when he gets shot, that Ive used as my alarm clock all this time.

    My Dad has had the same crappy GE alarm clock since 1982. It won't die!

    I've never had a problem with my Sony.

    If my alarm clock accidentally gets set to the buzzer instead of the radio, it scares the shit out of me and puts me in a bad mood.

    I just use my mobile phone, I hate the noise it makes when the alarm goes off but I chose that perticular noise so I would actually be forced to get up :)

    My alarm clock is missing several pieces after a few incidents that wound up with it against a wall (I loaned it to a friend, and he couldn't shut it off, so it got complimentary flying lessons). Still works just fine, and I like seeing all the internal stuff.

    Not even if I need to wake up at a particular time. My internal clock does that just fine. :)

    I have an alarm clock. It's called having a kid. These things climb on you and stomp on your nuts. It's SUPER EFFECTIVE!

    If you get a new one, DO NOT get one with blue LED lights. Those things are ungodly bright. Very hard to sleep with those things. I have to drape a hand towel over mine otherwise the light keeps me up. Same with my sound machine that makes thunderstorm sounds. It is from Brookstone. It has big ass lights on the front that light up the sound selection you chose. Again a bright light makes it hard for some people to sleep so I need to drape a towel over it.
