Stretching while sleeping

i've thought about falling asleep in a stretch before but i'd never do it.. sounds like a very bad idea.

last night i did fall asleep in a stretch (right hip/sacral spine).. I did it purposefully. however, it was just a normal ROM for most people, lying on my side with knees slightly bent and one foot cross over the other.. it stretches the F out of some glute/erectors originating in my sacral spine.. felt damn good when I woke up.

some people have actually done (contemplated) some crazy shit though:

- http://www.coolrunning.com.au/forums/?showtopic=18269

i bet there's a ton more out there.

the part about potentially losing a limb makes sense..

that's what wrecked my right hip flexor/adductor ^^ (but on the couch instead of on a foam roller)
