    umm i've been awake for like 55 hrs. I thought I would die when I finally got into bed.
    if a contradiction was contradicted would that contradition contradict the origional crontradiction?

    My employer issued me a court order requiring that I sleep at least 4 hours out of a 24 hour period.
    Otherwise I wouldn't sleep until my body gave out and I collapsed on the keyboard.

    Be careful and know what you're doing. Foolish rookies often OD on coffee.

    Brian, is that a swastika on your avatar?
    I was born; I shall die. Between those two events there is life. I don't know why, and I don't question it; I merely live.

    My record is something around 36 hours, 24 of them were wasted playing poker (we all ended up even, what a waste).

    I once stayed awake for 56 hours straight.

    During this time I played video games, watched movies at a theater, rode my bike over 100 miles, went to some malls, and did some other things I probaly don't remember too well.

    If you're doing something, its not hard to stay awake.
    When I went to sleep, I wasn't even all that tired, I just felt kind of sick.

    I remember seeing somewhere online that said if you stay awake for around 15 days straight, you can die from sleep deprivation...

    I saw that on uselessfacts.net - technically, if you stopped sleeping and eating at the same time, lack of sleep would kill you first.
