yeah you start getting pretty delusional around that stage...

my sleeping record is also pretty long... everyday i will sleep for a good 12 hours, but i think the longest i've slept is about 36 hours. Thats with a couple of small breaks in between though... i.e. toilet, food, drink, etc.

I find that hard to believe, as the official world record is 11 days.

Also... lithium is a reactive solid at all temperatures up to at least 100'C. Therefore the liquid metal would be very hot and very reactive. Surely you mean something else?

Otherwise, you win.

Until now, it was about 30 hours.

I haven't been able to truly sleep for the past three days...

Stupid stressful school coming back to haunt me when I want to sleep...

*grumble*

I'm not one to pull all-nighters (even when pumped full of caffeine)... I get drowsy at 3am and usually pass out around 4am.

I LIKE MY SLEEP.

hah! well i guess i just topped the record...
although i can't prove it im sure i could do it again (not that i want to)... its honestly not that hard (well for me anyway)... you get to a point where your past being tired... you no longer feel tired its like your mind becomes really switched on, like its been overclocked. I felt like I had mind-over-matter, and i did things that you would call ESP abilities, although it could have been coincidence or just plain delusion/hallucination I truly think it was mind-over-matter becoz thats exactly how i felt by that stage.

sorry i meant Valium... they sound so similar lol.

essentially 24 - 30 something

twice i have stayed up all night driving about 12 hours, then staying up all the day, arriving at destination in the morning,
smile it was fun, and the destination was a meditation retreat so i got to sleep and be refreshed in little spurts, but inevitably i would crash the day after fairly huge !
although i think the first or second time i may have gotten close to 48 without sleep sans meditation

Thanks for the replies, guys. Interesting stuff.

I'm pleased to announce I have broken my record. I've now gone without sleep for 39 hours and counting.

I wonder if I'll be able to make it to 48 hours? eek2

Well, I made it to 41 hours yesterday, then I gave up.

I experienced drowsiness, inability to concentrate, mild euphoria/giddiness, irritability, and extremely mild occasional visual distortions.

I think I've never gone longer than 22 hours or so. I never have the extra day to spare the results so I never try to stay up extremely long amounts. It could be beneficial for lucid dreaming though... much like the WBTB method.

Reading this topic somehow makes me want to stay up.

But my family would probably think I'm on drugs.

(They're already suspicious of me always wanting to take out the trash. I think it's fun! grin )
