Asmongold Admits To Using A Dead Rat As An Alarm Clock

Asmongold has revealed on stream about an utterly wild method he once used to try and wake himself up with a dead rat.

In a livestream, Asmongold spoke about how he didn’t used to own an alarm clock, and thus he decided, in all of his wisdom, to use a dead rat as his method of keeping himself awake. Read the quote in which he revealed this below:

The thing is I used to use a dead rat as an alarm clock, actually, for my stream. Basically what happened was wherever the sun would come up, it would start cooking the corpse of the rat and then it would start smelling again and then the smell would wake me up. So I would use the rat effectively as an alarm clock and as soon as it got hot enough it would wake me up.”

As far as ingenious methods of waking yourself up go this is certainly the most unique one. It’s also the most disgusting thing I’ve ever heard or will likely ever hear in your entire life. Still, you can’t deny how effective it is. I do wonder if he’s fully telling the truth or if he’s perhaps embellishing the truth since it’ll give him headlines like this.
