What's that thing where you're falling asleep and your whole body jumps?

Isn't that annoying?! Anyone know why we do that?

  • Instead of the knee jerk reaction......I guess its a body jerk reaction!

    Some say it's when your soul jumps back into your body.......funny how mine wants to come back all the time like a lost puppy!
    It wont leave me the hell alone and let me sleep!

  • I was going to say annoying! I hate it, I feel like a total weirdo when it happens lol. But I do think its because our bodies are relaxing and its nerves... I think, but could be wrong.

  • According to 'Sniglets' (a dictionary of meanings that didn't have words)... it's a napjerk.
