Wow, it would take time to get use to sleeping that way.  Would be great to give yourself a little boost then take off across the room.

I wonder if a really hard trucker fart would be enough? :tu:

Wow... sleeping upright in a closet with no windows, in a strait jacket type sleeping bag. No REAL air, and no way of knowing which way is up or down... HMMMM

Forget up and down, I would love to know what the difference between "REAL" air and the stuff they breath on the ISS is.
