I doubt it!: I don't think you'd really enjoy falling asleep while driving, eating, talking or being injured falling down when sleep hits you. People with narcolepsy can have night time insomnia, sleep walk, sleep eat, sleep smoke. The stress on the body causes obesity. You really think being a fat person who falls asleep in public is great?
