72 hours: sleepless. Feb. 16th, 2008 @ 04:27 AM Reply

So me and my friend, being the teenagers lusting for fun, have decided to stay up at least 72 hours over the 4 day weekend. (teacher work day/president's day.) So far I am at around 15 hours, and he is at about 27. He started before me, bleh.

Anyway, I'll probably keep track here.

While I'm at it, here are a few questions:

Will we hallucinate? I have heard rumors of this.

Will we get 'crazy' at all?

I read how if a cop pulls you over and you tell him you have been awake for 72 hours then he can say you are a danger to yourself, others, and put you in a hospital for 3-day recovery or something along those lines. Does this have any credibility?

And, have you ever done it? What are your experiences.

I will probably go longer, just to test myself. Probably doze off in school. Eh.

That about covers it, I guess. :)

No.

You'll experience mood swings and fatigue, but no.

I read how

No?

I'm an insomniac. Try living your whole life sleepless.

Don't do it. Before you even get to 30 hours you'll just collapse on your feet and sleep for about 15 hours.

Probably. If you start babbling on the BBS about Underpants Gnomes, remember this: PICS OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN

Will we get 'crazy' at all?

Prolly.

Most likely. After you've been up for 72 hours (if you make it), you'll understand why.

And, have you ever done it? What are your experiences.

Yes. A lot of Super Smash Bros and Sonic the Hedgehog was involved.

I bet you don't last 48.

That about covers it, I guess. :)

Wow. Just got 2 completely opposite posts in 1 minute.

Anyway, I will make it to 72. I've done 48 before, no problem. 2 days is no big feat. Don't insult me. :P

Possibility. There was a sleep deprivation experiment on Channel 4 once called "Shattered" where people had to stay awake for as long as possible to win some cash. One of the contestants hallucinated and thought he saw rats running towards him.

Apparently, being awake for too long can lower your inhibitions. Also on that programme, the contestants were just sitting around doing nothing for several minutes when suddenly one of them tipped a glass of water over someone else's head. All the contestants thought it was the most hilarious thing they'd ever seen and they started running around screaming about it.

You shouldn't consider driving if you're staying awake that long.

And, have you ever done it? What are your experiences.

I have only stayed awake from 7:00AM on a Friday until 10:00PM on the following Saturday. During the day on Saturday I was sat in the sun and kept falling forwards and waking up. It was a school trip to France and I daren't go to sleep on the way there in case someone drew on my face or something, so I just stayed awake.

I will probably go longer, just to test myself. Probably doze off in school. Eh.

Teachers love that.

Fatigue can cause your eyes and ears to play tricks on you, I once stayed up for ages playing a Resident Evil game, and I kept seeing zombies hanging around in my room, but then they became random items such as the tv or comp =P

No. If your friend says he does he's lying.

No you might get pissy but not crazy.

Something about sleeping while drowsy will get you a ticket. I'm not sure if it's true but meh. I've never heard of the 3 day recovery. You'll probably just have to go home and go to sleep.

And, have you ever done it? What are your experiences.

No I haven't tried it.

I will probably go longer, just to test myself. Probably doze off in school. Eh.

Great

Sleep deprivation can lead to hallucinations.

It's been scientifcaly proven that you don't need sleep to live, only energy. I'd do it for about twice as long, but I can't be assed.

I have done 36, not out of my own choice. I felt nakered at around 18-24 hours in then started feeling more awake. I think i could do it for a week. Never planning to try though. at around 24 hours i was extremly moody.
