Pins and Needles
Have you ever had your foot go to sleep but not get pins-and-needles? Feels like your foot's turned to jelly and you can't control any of the muscles in it. A dead weight you just have to pull around that constantly gets in the way . . . I don't recommend it.
Also: falling asleep cross legged with your forehead on the floor. . . for an hour. Testament to exhaustion, yes. Smart use of contortionist techniques, no.
Cutting blood flow to entire leg = painful paralysis for 15 minutes.
