      Going to stay up for 2-3 days.

      So, I am going to try this for the next few days, seeing as how I have no responsibilities. Anything I should keep in mind to keep myself awake?

      my friend stayed up for 73 hour and basically started tripping balls. he was having visual and auditory hallucinations. At one point he told me that it sounded like a train came busting through the middle of his house.

      I agree with cygnus. Do it after 48 hours, and stay up for the next 24.

      I once heard that if you stay up for 72 hours and then commit a crime, then you cannot be held responsible, because you would be classified as insane.

      I want to do it because its an experience I want to have. I want to know what it would be like. If you aren't here to help me out with that, then just leave.

      Actually, the insanity plea isn't used that often. It's one of the least used defenses in fact.

      CE, I have to warn you to be careful about this. A friend of my dad's stayed up for three days in a row because he was doing a stunt on his radio show....by the end of the three days he was hallucinating, and even after he recovered, he was never the same person again. He was always extremely irritable and acted like a different person. I don't think it's very wise to push your body to those kinds of limits without consulting a doctor, because long term sleep deprivation can be very harmful to your body and your brain.

      So long as you've researched sleep deprivation thoroughly and you have someone to watch you, you'll probably be fine...

      First of all, before even starting the experiment, have a very long list of specific tasks to do. You never want to find yourself just sitting there thinking, even for a few minutes. Once you start getting tired, don't read anything or try to do anything involving a lot of logical or creative thought. Repetitiveness seems to be fine, but avoid activities which you find boring or frustrating.

      Like Kraftwerk said, physical activity is the best. I found that going for a walk with a friend works extremely well. Simple conversation is great, too. Small household tasks, such as putting up shelves, doing the dishes, or fixing a squeaky door seem to work really well.

      Some more tips:
      -If you feel like you want to close your eyes "just for a few seconds", don't.
      -Try not to daydream much.
      -Don't lay down or lean against something or stay in a position where you could easily fall asleep.
      -Take lots of showers.
      -Eat a small meal regularly and drink lots of water.


      I'm currently adjusting to the Everyman sleep schedule; the adjustment period involves a certain amount of sleep dep, so I've started doing research on that. If you happen to keep a log of the experiment, I'd be interested in reading it Any observations you have about your state of mind, which activities work or don't work, or any data you collect would be very much appreciated. (Personally, as far as collecting data goes, I'm tracking my weight, blood pressure, and reaction time, since these are some trackable things which are affected by sleep dep).

      I think sarcasm font should be backwards italics.

      I have a file for a sarcastic font, but the forum software does not support it.
