Staying Up For 48 Hours Challenge!!!

116 Replies 745 Views Created 22-05-2009
Thats right, one more thing to do for my 100 things to do in life list.

Few questions:
Can I leave the PS3 on for 10 hours :P
What can I do to keep awake for this first 24 hours (today by myself, tomorrow with friends drinking red bull :P )

Any other tips?


Thank you ;)

Get your mates over for a drinking session just keep on drinking and drinking for 2 days. I have done it before it's easy but only easy if you're really up to it.

I have done it a few times

Red bull etc your best bet

Alcohol is great but after a while you will probably end up sleeping

Keep doing stuff, films, TV, PS3 etc

If you get bored you feel more tired

You will end up going loo a lot

PS3 can be left on as long as ya like, I've had my ps3 switched on for 7 days solid prior to the auto shutdown function xD

 

As for staying up, I find getting coffee, and start programming helps............................. well it does for me it keeped me up for a whole week with no sleep.. then after that I sleeped for almost 2 whole days.

 

Then again my times are buggered anyway.. yesterday I woke up at..... 10PM.. and probably going to go to bed at about 2AM tonight.. so yeah I'm used to long hours... maybe it's just me, I dunno. but do some programming and you'll stay up xD

 

Or get a motorbike (Not a hair dryer)...

Longest I've stayed up is about 37 hours. I've only ever gone on two occasions I can recall without sleep. This New Years with a friend to make it memorable. We walked through the town at 7 on New Years Day, it was like something from I Am Legend. I conked at 5 that day.

The other day was when I was about 11, many moons ago. It was a great time, stayed at a friend's house, we didn't sleep, party next day, far too much caffeine for our young bodies managed to get us to the night, but when it wore off and I began to come down I was so tired the only way I can describe it is like being intensely drunk. Things register slow with your mind, you can't remember anything and carrying out basic tasks is suddenly alot of mental work.

 

 

 

I dunno why I just told that story. Moral is don't bother, it's pointless. Get the minimum amount of sleep required (9/8 hours) and you'll be fine. You'll be living most of your life awake and you won't suffer the bad effects of sleep deprivation.
