After falling asleep in front of the machine on the 7th, I realized with proper planning I could do this regularly.  Thinking I’d be using the machine again today, I brought a time to work after staying up later than I should.  When I arrive at work ready for bed I was informed that I’d be helping to operate the extruder which requires 3 arms and 5 eyes to operate properly as it is the rare combination of hot, sharp and in some places, quickly moving.  Not prepared for the day of gladiator-style machine operations I was reminded of my fatigue with a number of small abrasions and burns.  I’ve now demanded that my boss give me 48 hours notice if a job will require me to be awake to complete.
