"Yes!" :laugh: Matter of fact. That was the first thing on my mind when I woke up this morning. It would have been a terrible day if you hadn't told us, and shown us.

Thanks anyhow. Question? How do we know the cameraman didn't just turn his camera sideways for that shot????? :poke:

I thought it was very cool! I liked the part about 1/2 the brain staying active while sleeping too.
