I was woken up at precisely 4:10AM this morning by a nuclear weapon being tested in North Korea. Well, to be more precise, by the news that the weapon had been tested. See, I had subscribed to the BBC News's breaking news sms alerts service, which sends you texts when big news things happen. It's only been moderately useful/interesting so far, but this early morning text message was a bit of a jolt to the system.
Okay, so maybe I should have had my mobile on silent, but honestly, couldn't the BBC have just waited until breakfast time? I mean, if it was a nuclear bomb explosion in the UK, then I might have wanted to be woken up (although, I'm not sure, I like my sleep), but North Korea, that's miles away!
