Falling asleep while studying is a rite of passage for students of higher learning, so why shouldn't college libraries install desks that made the occasional nap a bit more comfortable?

Underneath a hinged panel on top is a stretchy panel of latex that might not be as comfortable as a pillow, but looks a hell of a lot more inviting than a text book. The desk incorporates other clever innovations as well, like an arched hook for hanging a shoulder bag, a somewhat out-of-place drawer for provelactics, and an easy to clean strip on the underside for sticking gum. But is it too much to ask for a built-in alarm clock? After all, you don't want to sleep through the exam you're cramming for the next morning.
