Though I don’t have an answer as to why most snooze buttons will give you nine minutes more time before the next alarm, I can say that without the mighty snooze button, I’d be a grumpy, grumpy person. For instance, I had set today’s alarm so I would remember to get up and write my Ping for the day — but I snoozed every nine minutes for an hour before I actually got out of bed. I feel much more lucid than if I were to just get up the first time an alarm went off.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going back to bed for another nine minutes. Or some multiple thereof. -ram
