    What do you think will happen if.......

    I go 3-5 days without sleep? I dunno how it came up, but my friends and
    I have this thing going where they want to see if i can go that long without
    sleep all the while reaping the benefit of watching as I slowlybegin to
    lose my sanity. This can't be good for me but hey, I'll never back down
    from a challenge. What's your opinion on the matter Doctor Blue?

    One time I went 3 days without sleep. I was in a party at the end of that time and I woke up one level later with a Crawler Nest Coffer Key and back in my mog in Port J. I don't know how I got there or any details of the pt. O.o;

    I'm not in BG, but I do remember reading about this psychology study where a guy stayed up for a couple weeks. After so many days you need someone to keep you awake because just closing your eyes will cause you to nod off.

    After so long the guy became really paranoid and thought everyone was out to get him to sleep.

    When it was all said and done, it took him like 4 days to recover. Nothing really that bad will happen to you, but you'll be pretty fucking tired during most of that time.

    Good luck :D

    Nothing really. During last summer I stayed up for 3 and 3/4 days playing FFXI.

    Research says that once a person goes long enough without sleep, he or she begins to hallucinate which eventually leads to disorientation and paranoia.

    A man who experimented with this first hand recorded that after about 100 hrs without sleep, people he worked with would enter the room and he could not recognize who they were and much of the time accused them of wanting to hurt him.

    He remained in the corner of the room with all of these symptoms until eventually (not exactly sure how many days he stayed awake....I think he was around 122-150 hrs) he blacked out.

    This was one of the experiments mentioned in my psychology book

    Dang, this sounds kinda fun. Nothing like a group of friends witnessing
    my slow dissent into madness. I've stayed up a few times for a couple days in
    a row for school junk, but this time its all for the amusement of myself
    and others. At the end of it all, there will be much drinking and eventually a
    good days sleep. Currently I'm at about 2 days dating back to 3:00 est
    on Saturday.

    In our psych class we watched a video of some guy who stayed up for like 7 days strait I think it was.

    Anyways he was a DJ and it was for some sort of radio thing, (back when we had black and white tv's and radio was big) He also began to hullicinate and became parionoid, after he finished the entire 7 day period he was taken to the hospital to sleep and monitor him.

    I guess his friends and family said his personality changed after that. He used to be a really nice guy but he become short tempered and sometimes rude.

    So it may possibly effect how you think or feel if you go too long without sleep, maybe your brain can re-wire itself to change how you react to stimuli after so long without sleep. 3 days is pretty safe amount of time though, But I wouldn't suggest going longer unless you have some real reason to, say, your in the middle of Iraq in a firefight.

    It's a pretty good experience, you get a lot done in the time you stay up, and you kind of fake smoke drugs because you're like, "beyond tired" and you hear voices and hallucinate and stuff. Did it a lot in high school while I was playing Asheron's Call and EQ. If you stay up for more than 48 hours, you get pretty confused for a few days after even after you sleep a lot.

    I stopped doing this to myself this year though and I guess I get less done but I think I'm prolly healthier for it.

    Hmmm, just had a thought. I will occupy my time by beating both FFX and FFX-2. That should bring me to about 3 1/2-4 days. On a side note, I've only been hallucinating/paranoid one time. Last week of senior year in high school. Owed so much work (pretty much I owed the entire semester's worth of English lol) that I had to pull 3 or 4 all nighters in 5 days to finish it all in time. Boy that last night I had to type a 10 page paper and I swear there was a guy coming up behind me with a knife every timed I looked away from the door. Then after school instead of sleeping I went out bowling, man that was a good time.

    rofl. I'm guessing FFX-2 wasn't any good? I finished FFX and then waited until I got FFXI, so I never got the chance to play X-2.

    X-2 sucked major balls... literally. It was a game that was made for the horny boys that like to play both video games, and dress up.

    Oh, come on, that's pretty harsh. I admit, I was pretty damn sceptical at first too, the "story" was ridiculous and Square tried to sell the game with sex a little too much, but leveling those funny dress spheres was actually pretty fun...
