First there was sleepwalking, then sleep-driving (with the help of Ambien), now it's sleep-texting:

What if I told you there was a texting metric space.

I don't text, either.

I guess it would only be a pseudometric, e.g. $d(\textrm{u}, \textrm{you}) = 0$.

I think I've sleep posted on PF before. At times I have caught myself sleep working. Apparenly, one night I even walked to my office. So I think there have been a few times when I fell asleep in my office, woke up, started working, and also made a post or two, but all while not fully conscious.

I remember one where I was talking about ground rods. When I saw the post later, I could barely make sense of it. And I only had a vague memory of making the post.

A couple of times I thought for a moment that someone broke into my office and did some of my work for me... well now wait, that doesn't make sense!

My best friend used to have disclaimers on his e-mails that he was not responsible for any messages written after 11pm. He took ambien.
