Since, you know, I'm failing miserably at doing so, and would love to steal - er, borrow - other people's methods for passing out faster.
 
Anybody have anything that doesn't involve warm milk or sheep?

Here's a tip. GET OFF OF GIANTBOMB! 
 
Ha, I don't mean to sound so rude, but really, it's kind of hard to sleep when you're making posts on here, because now you're going to watch this thread like a hawk and wait for people to fill it with suggestions. The best thing to do right now would be to just log off and try to sleep. Or you might want to try reading one of my really long blog posts and see how long you can last.

Not trying to be rude, but we don't sleep. 
 
Ask on Yahoo answers, maybe?

How about warm milk and sheep? Nice midnight snack if you ask me.

I either watch a DVD with an audio commentary I've heard a million times (Evil Dead 2 fits the bill nicely here) or listen to a podcast I've heard before.
 
I do have a sheep method, though. I see how many different ways I can get a sheep past a fence. Some examples:

  • Tunneling under
  • On a pogo stick
  • Flung with a catapult
  • Simply opening the gate and walking through
 
I just keep coming up with new methods until I nod off.

Listen to Brad's voice on the bombcast.

Easiest way is to simply stop thinking. I also keep my TV on at night since the silence bothers me.

When i had trouble falling asleep a few months back because of having the shittiest job ever which kept me.. down, i used to watch my favorite movies while falling asleep night after night. the familiar dialogue and narration comfort me and put me to sleep.  And your sheep methods are hilarious

BS. Vinny sleeps because if he didn't, he wouldn't be as beautiful as he is.

I find that watching the DP ER late at night makes me nod off. mostly the BR one. Brad is so calming.

This. Scientifically proven... by me.
