This is a question Pointless Experiments

Pavlov's Frog writes: I once spent 20 minutes with my eyes closed to see what it was like being blind. I smashed my knee on the kitchen cupboard, and decided I'd be better off deaf as you can still watch television.

How long can I stay awake before hallucinations and other issues mean I MUST sleep?
About 54 hours.

As I type I've been without sleep for coming on my 67th consecutive hour.

No chemicals provided...in fact I've had a few beers over the time.

All because I've got a couple of pretty tame problems...but for some strange reason my mind has gone into a sort of twisted 'overdrive'... constantly going through possible solutions.

I don't actually 'feel' tired. It's a bit bad (particularly at night) because my limbs all go to sleep so I get that non-orgasmic shudder running through them.

I've managed to get loads done though..and watch a few films etc.

I've got my fingers crossed for some shut eye tonight

Past forty something hours it started getting really freaky. As I approached 50 hours the hallucinations were really quite alarming and almost served to keep me awake! Dazzling colurs and shapes in the sky, dark spots where I wasn't focussing my sight. I'd see/imagine something then realise it wasn't right and have to battle in my mind to decide if what I was looking at now was real or the thing I was seeing a second or so ago. In other words doubting the real world and convincing myself the hallucination was right and now I was hallucinating.

I became a total danger to myself and was less use than a water paperclip.

Err. Hmm.
Approaching hour 37 now. Have just gone to see Dark Knight Returns, which is excellent and a massive three and a half odd hours.
Stumbled home feeling very tired and thinking only of sleep.

Step in door, make cup of tea, sandwich out of remains of salad and stuff, and now I feel like I can stay awake forever.

I am totally going to regret this later.

my friend Matt did about 5 1/2 days
At the end, when he finally went to sleep, Mr Kitty got Matt's collection of garden gnomes that had been repainted evil and arranged them in a circle around the matress on the floor that was serving as Matt's bed.

Apparently the noise when he woke up got the cops called out to see if someone had been murdered.

It took Matt about 3 weeks to be all normal again, well as normal as Matt gets.
