    I have been awake since 2:02pm EST, Friday Afternoon. It is now 6:09am EST Saturday Morning, and I wish to stay awake for another 16 Hours at least, or at least enough to get me through to 8pm and mabey if I'm lucky 9 or 10.


    One Might ask Why I'm doing this? Well I myself dont even really know, for one thing I have been on a night schedule and wish to switch back because I am going to have some time off of school and alot of the things I need to do over the next Three Months will require me to be up during the Daylight hours, rather than lurking around the house at the wee hours of the morning.


    In Short, I am asking my Fellow Jcers for suggestions on how to stay up another 16 hours minimum, if it be through a Caffinated Beverage or if it requires Physical Effort please post any suggestions or experiances of Staying up all night!

    Thanks!

    Not sleeping in LONG TERM could cause you to DIE... I am not kidding!

    32 hours maybe fine... but more = Extremely dangerous...


    Your body has to has some sleep, if u don't then it affects everything your body functions.

    It also depends on how much sleep you had last time, was it A LOT MORE (Better) or also short (Worse)

    EDITED

    That is True, but a less than 48 Hour Stretch couldant Harm too much, Collage Studants do worse During Finals to my understanding ;)

    Besides, when it comes to staying up all night I've sort of gotton used to it form when I would party with friends. This may wind up being my Second longest Stretch though.

    Do you really need to stay up continuously to return your body clock to normal?

    Drink coffee. Run, skip and jump around the building only when necessary. You need to save your energy, so restrict any elaborate arm movements.


    :D

    JM22, Last time I slept (6:30am EST to 2:02pm EST Friday) I had about 8 hours of un-intrupted sleep, only waking a couple times form things such as the bathroom or someone walkign down the hallway too hard.

    I think 8 hours is about a decent nights sleep, though 10 woule proabbly have been better, but unfortuetly I had to get up an do a few things. :)

    How about playing the SW drinking game with a caffinated drink instead of alcohol. ;) That should keep you up for a while. [face_mischief] :D

    Well, works for me anyway. ;)

    If you like a challange you should drink loads of coffe and eat some coffeinepills and then try to sleep. That is waaaay harder than to stay awake... You could always sit on a small chair that you will fall off every time you fall asleep and thus will injur yourself. Pain keeps you awake! (to some degree and when it passes that certain point it knocks you out)....

    Okay, those where not any good ideas but if you don't get any better.... ;)
