    What's the longest anyone here has stayed awake?

    I went a week in basic training, but I don't like to count that because I took little cat naps when I could. I never could figure out why they chose to do that to us durring weapons qualifications.

    From recent memory I've gone three days and two nights.

    I am not aware of the longest session, but my brother and I once attempted to stay awake for a full 24 hours. We got bored and went to bed (separate d'uh).

    However I have at times went with only a few hours sleep a night for several weeks because I had difficulty sleeping.

    A week sounds painful - how long can humans stay awake without dying, going insane etc?

    Edit: Think that should be gone with...

    a little over thirty hours when I was in my early twenties


    If I remember correctly. The thing now-a-days is not so much staying up for long periods of time but going on such a short amont of sleep for too many days in a row.

    Lawl! A buddy of mine and I used to do this all the time. We got to 24 a couple of times, but more often than not fatigue and boredom would get us at about the 20-hour mark.

    We used to play the game "Sleep Deprivation" on another forum... One guy got well over 30 hours, and I got somewhere close to that.

    It's fun. You have to post regularly, usually every thirty minutes, so people are sure you aren't napping in between.

    This was quite a few years back, when we were all still in early high school. We had time to be stupid.

    Back in high school and early college I never really slept. I could go weeks...months on two to three hours per night. I spent a few days up in a row before. 48 hours easily. I can't remember what my record was.

    To stay awake all night adds a day to your life.

    I once went two and a half days and started hallucinating while I was driving that dinosaurs were running down a mountainside I was driving by. I decided to get some sleep after that.

    I start having auditory hallucinations after about 24 hours. :shock:

    Like, when I take a shower after pulling an all-nighter, the water sounds like a crowd of people talking in low voices. Never anything distinct enough to understand, mind you. I've always figured it's my tired brain trying to make sense and find patterns in the white noise....

    That's.. actually quite cool! Never thought of looking for patterns in the shower before. :lol:
    I love that about the mind, the constant search for patterns and logic, just wish I could find some. :wink:

    I don't sleep well, often I will stay up one night just so I can get a good continuos sleep from exhaustion the next night.

    I haven't done an all-nighter for a while now. But the last few I did, I always seemed to end up at the pub at the end of it the next night... just before I'd fall asleep in the pub :)

    Happy days :wink:
