    Good luck with that.

    I hear with enough not sleeping you have hallucinations of being attacked by monkeys, and then you go insane and then you die.

    I`ve done this too, but it was called the military, though we were usually on our feet rather than being a fixture. One definitely does hallucinate, comparable to the effects of other substances. Can`t imagine that I would ever do it for fun.

    I don`t think it`s possible. If he tapes his eyes open, he`ll pass out and sleep with them open. If he drugs himself, his heart will just give out. I do 24 on a pretty frequently, 48 once in a blue moon, and 72 one time during a field op in infantry OSUT. I was close to the point of true physical exhaustion and was experiencing auditory and visual hallucinations. But then again, that was in tandem with a 25-mile road march...so who knows.

    The longest I have ever stayed up is 72 hours, I started having hallucinations of ghost and spiders, it really freaked the hell out of me. The only reason I was able to do it is because I went to 2 lockins in a row, I dont see how anyone could stay up for 5 days looking at a screen, that would have to do some kind of damage to your eyes.

    man he could only make it that long? that is sad, it isn`t that hard but it might be different if you are just sitting around staring at a screen then if you are up and moving around.

    5 days is possible, but very hard. You do hallucinate, and if you keep it up long enough you`ll eventually get sleep apnea. Your body won`t let you kill itself.

    Most I`ve done is about 3 days. I saw a hallucination about 3 deformed gay men trying to rape me. As soon as I saw that I tried to go to sleep as soon as possible.

    I think this is interesting, In my psychology class we studied the unconsious mind and one of the things in that was sleep needs and we studied this one kid who went 10 days (I think, it may have been 11) without sleeping, and he was perfectly fine, but another guy, some radio station guy, who went so long and started hallucinating and stuff.

    lonepoet - I remember reading about that high school kid and the DJ in a fascinating book called `Sleep Thieves`, which was about the dangers of sleep deprivation (especially in modern society, as most people are not getting enough sleep).

    From memory, that kid (and a friend) and the DJ clocked up a mind-boggling 240-odd hours without sleep.

    Staying up for a couple days can be fun sometimes, but any more than that I think would start being harmful.

    if you go for more than 10 days without sleep, you will die. its stupid to go for even 2-3 days without sleep...you just cannot function properly. please ppl, dont be like this guy.

    I stayed up for a little over 24 hours once, fell asleep, and woke up cuddling my heating vent (it wasn`t on, thank god). I`d love to do it again, with a friend, to study the effects. You won`t die without sleep for a week or two.
