    I like doing all nighters because I get loads of work done. I'm not very good at going without sleep though so once Ive done the all nighter I'll need to sleep all day then all night the next night :p: I'm a sleepy kinda person.

    I've gone about 23 hours without sleep coz I was up all day then I travelled on the plane and was watching some films and programmes so I went to bed really later and I'm never comfortable on the plane so i didn't sleep really then and then I was up all day again when I arrived at my destination and a party was thrown for me and my cousins (double confirmation/double birthday party) which was from 6pm to 4 am.lol.
    Only time I was tired was in the church (know its bad-couldnt help it) and couldn't stay awake till 4 (went to bed at 3) coz I was starting to lose all balance and hallucinate.

    Yeah. They paid people to go schizto then blamed it on the lack of sleep.

    I think they didnt allow to put it on anymore because it was unethical, giving people the chance to win life changing money if they didnt sleep for a week.

    36 hours is my best record when I had to deal with the jetlag between the time zone of england and hong kong - felt like a zombie

    i find it easier to work at night, but i hate staying up all night. most i've managed is about 40 hours and it killed me. it was also the most rubbish essay i've ever written, and i'll never do it again (ha! :rolleyes:).

    As a chronic insomniac, I routinely go several days without sleeping. I have no idea what my 'record' is, but it's probably four or five days (when your grip on reality very definitely begins to fade). These days I take prescription tranquillizers like temazepam when it gets very bad.

    I love nightime. I am so relaxed and i do most of my going out with mates from early evening to late night. I get home, crack open a beer, get a pizza then do all the stuff i love. But then i pay for it in the afternoon when ive slept in all morning and then cant bed bothered to do anything else.

    I managed to stay awake for 60 hours with no coffee. Then I started to see sprites running on the floor (really!) and I decided it was high time I went to bed

    i do about 39 to 40 frequently even worked a 24 hour shift. i seem to get an adrenaline rush after about 15 to 20 hours and that keeps me going.
