I'm requesting that someone please make an easy instructable that tells you how to make a clapper. that way, when i wake up in the morning i dont have to go all the way across the room to turn on the light. and ill also hook up a radio to it so that the music freaking makes me wake up :-)

A "clapper" is one of those consumer electronic devices that is probably cheaper to buy than to make. I used to use one of those "security timers" to turn on my radio in the morning to help wake me up...
I just put my alarm clock on the other side of the room, so I have no choice whether to get up or not ;-)
Have you seen those alarm clocks that roll off of the stand and into a far corner, not shutting up until they are placed back?
Yeah, they're awesome =]

lol that worked for me like once... then i just ignored it and wiated for my dad to come in and wake me up
That is where the clapper would shine: attach a output spot light to it, and when the alarm goes off the spot light "brightens the head of the bed" :-)

Good luck with that. In college I put my alarm on the other side of the room, but on a bad day I could get up, walk across the room, hit the snooze alarm, and go back to sleep. Every 10 minutes. For hours.

A good rule for life, "If all else fails, try clapping".
