    I don't understand how hopping over to continental Europe and back can result in "Jet Lag."

    Jet lag is a result of messing up the body's internal clock, not from travelling on a plane
    The plane trip was a couple of hours each way, the stress of checking in, security and duty free (which sucks at both Krakow Airport and Luton) is enough for me to consider the whole thing jetlag, even if technically it has nothing to do with it .

    And I got frisked by a border guard in Poland, some huge army bloke in uniform, woah. totally offtopic but still, most of my posts are today. :woo:

    actually I never got the big attraction with South Park. Or should I say "It insists upon itself." :yep:

    Oh I agree.

    I liked that almost as much as I like Total.

    Ha, to all of you whom believe Family Guy is somehow superior to South Park, I suggest you watch the episode "Cartoon Wars."

    Cartoon Wars is an incredibly awesome episode xD
    I do love South Park, however I'm obsessed with Family Guy.
    I get obsessed with TV shows/films/bands/anything that breathes.

    Currently, it's Flight of the Conchords! I can't get enough of it xD

    Ahh, I loiked Flight of The Conchords before it was cool.

    "There ain't no party like my grandma's tea party, hiiii, hiii."

    +1 for recognising the episode, as well.

    I've no idea about long term, but these were the short term effects of my sleep deprivation:

    * I no longer cared/needed sleep, i was just content to stay awake for the sake of it.

    *However, once I reached this state, I puked about 5 times, and my mouth tasted like pure caffeine.

    * I went through a couple of hours just laughing at everything, I.E. my friend sneezed, I laughed, my mate went to the toilet, I nearly fell over laughing.

    * Incredibly horny, I would have actually boned whatever someone had put in front of me, but that may have just been the two incredibly hot girls that stayed up with me.
    I suffer similar symptoms :P

    Steeeve.

    T'is the episode where Bret and Jermain get mugged (camera phone FTW xD)
    and Bret runs away when Jermain gets caught in a fence.

    I get incredibly depressed if I stay up for 24 hours, very very rarely do it, if I done it often enough I'd be on a bus to the other side of the country and would have dropped out of university and quit my job, to fall asleep on the bus then wake up to wonder wtf I just did. "Seemed like a good idea at the time!"

    Was that a serious question? It's the same song isn't it? :s

    And then it goes: my rhymes and records they don't get played... etc... (i do know the words, but not typing them all out at 5.47am )
    No, it's not a serious question:p: It's one of my favourite parts of the song

    So, you stay awake for 24 hours.
    At the end you just feel tired, but somehow you get a bit of a buzz.
    You're stuck in a "I'm tired, but I don't want to sleep" phase where sleeping seems pointless but is the only thing you want to do.

    Going for 24 hours without sleep, what are the short-term and the long-term effects?
    What if it's done on a regular basis?


    So far I've been awake for 21 hours without any energy drinks or copious amounts of coffee xD
    WEAKLING!
    My most is about 3 days. Then had the best sleep ever.
