Why, what? Why am I looking at that at 4 in the morning?

1. I woke up (after a full night's sleep).

2. That was the first interesting thing I happened upon in my routine morning encounter with the internet.

Is it not amazing how the pseudopupils always seem to look directly into the camera lens? Makes you think they've taken a film course.

Very cool video.

If I were you I'd start sleeping until 5:00

I just try to stay asleep until 4.

I wake up, look at the iPhone, and hope it will be at least 4, so I won't have to go through the rigamarole of going back to sleep.

If it's at least somewhat after 3, I attempt the rigamarole but sometimes decide the hell with it and get up.
