Well, as long as we're sharing formative experiences, I must admit that
I got the idea from Robert Heinlein during my long, now somewhat
embarrassing, adolescent fascination with his stories.  Although in the
story I'm thinking of, hitting yourself in the head with a hammer was
being used for its soporific rather than its stupefying effects, so I
guess I did extend the concept a little.
