    hey hey. sumbody told me about this study:
    "Peter Tripp stayed awake for 201 hours, in order to raise money for charity. Three days into the experiment Tripp became abusive and after 4 days he began to hallucinate (seeing spiders in his shoes) and to become paranoid (believing people were drugging his food). By the end of the experiment, his body temperature had dropped and his waking brain wave patterns were virtually indistinguishable from those of a sleeping person. After 24 hours of sleep, Tripp awoke and reported him self-feeling perfectly normal"
    please could somebody give me a reference from were this came from. thnaks
