What happens if I don't fall asleep at 0? Will I die? Will I get a BSOD?

You carry on into negatives. Eventually you'll get to -32,768, and then you can start again from 32,767 - assuming you have a 16 bit brain that is. God help you if yours is 32 bit.

You enter negative integer land. Assuming you started at binary twos complement +4 you've only got five counts to decide on register width before 1111 1111 then 1111 1110 etc

Personally I'd start at a bigger number like decimal 127 aka 0111 1111

you wrap around to 100 and start again. Hopefully, this endless loop with help you fall asleep. :-)
