I once stayed up over 72 hours straight when I was in the military (not out of choice).. The first 48 were a piece of cake, but the last 24 hours were a complete blur.. I remember being very loopy and driving a vehicle is definitely not encouraged Smile

Good luck! Make sure you have plenty of Coke, water, and food.. Cold air helps too...

Well I've passed the 36 hour mark, now all thats left is, I don't know, I'll go as long until I just crash in front of my computer, or watching a movie. I hope to do 48, just keep upping the ante every time i reach a certain point.

Eliminating single nights have always been fairly easy for me. Quite possibly due to my past gaming addictions. Smile

In the military, I often went without sleep. For me, once I get past that first "wall", I'm good to go.

44:30?

Hmmmph. Not impressed. Try 33 years.

Yeah, 44:30 sounds more likely than 33 years. Personally I'm asleep on the couch by 9:30.

My body can stay up for countless hours as long as my head never touches a pillow and try 72+ hours a pain in the ass and I did this last summer and I turned 14 2 monthes ago. Also, I hate sleep I spend my time just doing things that I never have done before. I did use about 4 cups of coffee though and also I drink lots of tea, but as long as I eat regularly I can go for hours and skip one night and have P.E. the next morning at school. One time I crashed, but that's because I couldn't do and slept for 14 hours solid. Also, I have a slight insomnia that depends on my diet and mood, but certain foods like turkey have a reverse effect on me and keep me up, but then again I can eat high acid foods with no problem and I've had IBS for 2 years and I can drink vodka with no after effects (hey it got me $20 and it was just one shot) also I drink wine sometimes, since I can't get drunk off of about 10 oz. phisically, mentally, or legally (odd since 4 oz. can get you legally drunk). I don't advise underage drinking, but my family is German and they believe in the old ways where kids are aloud to drink.
