Dear 100 Hour Board,
Classes have numerous distractions such as the professor constantly talking, the lack of leg room, and the lights being on. Despite all of this, I find it easier to sleep in class than in my own bed. This is true even when I get eight hours of sleep the night before. Why does this happen?

A: Dear Greeny,
Boredom. That's essentialy what lulls your brain into a state of unconcsiousness (sleep). Apparently whatever your teachers are talking about is less entertaining than the thoughts that drift through your head and keep you awake as you lie in bed at night. Don't worry, I have the same problem.
