    i can't be the only one here who's had trouble sleeping on occasion.
    what's the longest you've stayed up?
    what's the weirdest hallucinations you've seen/heard from lack of sleep?

    i'm on my third night without sleep
    a few minutes ago i was in the hallway and i heard someone walk upstairs and saw them walk into my living room and there wasn't anybody there.
    >cool story minty, tell another
    no. fuck you

    Luckily, I've never had insomnia serious enough to be up for more than 30 hours, but I have had many days where I could simply not sleep.
    Worst time was when I had to take a final with one hour of sleep.

    Stright, 52 or so hours, wasn't to bad, saw a bunch of shadows.
    Did a week+ of limited sleep during Ramadan, like 30min-1h every 6-10 hours. After day 4 I was on auto pilot, full on zombie, could not tell if I was shooting at ghosts or not.

    I drove all night to get to my ex-BF in Oregon once. Around three in the morning I slowed down to pass thru a little town on the Oregon border. A woman jogger ran in front of my stopped car and then vanished. That same night I pulled over because I saw flashing lights in back of me and thought it was a patrol car. It was a optical illusion caused by lights from a railroad yard a ways off.

    Longest I have ever stayed up was 2 days.
    Yeah, I drink a lot of coffee.

    60 hours is the max I've stayed without sleeping. Didn't hallucinate but by that time kind of slept every time I blinked, was tachycardic and had this looming sensation like I was in danger and was gonna die. Interestingly enough, everything seemed more funny on that state, specially things I didn't find funny before, giggled constantly.

    Sometimes we would have no sleep nights in the army... nothing really happened.
    Just felt sleepy.
    We had weeks in traning where they would hardly let us sleep at all... But other than 2-3 guys passing out...
    You don't really get all crzay when you can't sleep but have to keep doing stuff instead of dwelling on how sleepy you are.

    longest non-drug induced stretch i have:

    worked from 10am - 6pm, got on the highway at 9pm, and drove 870 miles. stopped for gas/coffee a few times, and one omelet at a breakfast nook in the middle of nowhere. traffic was bad when i hit my destination, finally arrived at 3pm-ish (i think). didnt get to sleep till about 1am. that's 41 hours including timezone. also got a $400 speeding ticket. good times.

    i had my mp3 player hooked up and time flew by :D by the time the exhaustion kicked in, i was about 150 miles from where i needed to be, so i was determined to just finish it instead of getting a hotel. but then i got stuck in a traffic jam for hours under a blazing sun. i regretted it lol

    I haven't slept tonight. Between the 26º-39º we have here in Madrid right now (26º at fucking 2. a.m...) and that I have a shoulder pretty strained, it was impossible

    Anyways, I always have had sleeping problems since I reached the age of reason (k, lol)
    Of real sleep, I would say that my average is around 4 hours/day at most

    But never allucinated from sleep deprivation :(

    I wanna say my record is a week, but that doesn't seem like something people can do without going nutters forever, so maybe four or five days or there about? Days start smooshing into each other.

    Around 48 hours without sleep is when walls start twitching for me, lurching suddenly towards me as though the room were about to collapse. I also start seeing people moving in the corner of my eye, which, being schizophrenic and an enthusiastic drug user, provides myself and loved ones with hours of amusement.

    Day three is generally when random crying jags start and terrible anxiety attacks with nausea, promiscuity, and you might also get sudden terror shits.

    Here's a collection of gifs illustrating what it feels like to be awake for as long as you have:

    tumblr_m65ff06jvC1qkql8to1_400.

    tumblr_m5ncrmirBw1qbjhrao1_250.

    tumblr_m5f4z7RR7c1rr7c99o1_500.

    tumblr_m44w23Ypau1r2r58z.

    I recommend a cool bath with a bowl and some Don Bluth movies. I find that Rockadoodle is awesome when hallucinating, hyper-sensitive, and regretting ones very existence. :D

    I would normally say he must get heaps of tail for being a hero, but his cock's probably unusable.

    Love the look on his face. I reckon he's picturing the bull done medium rare with a side of mashed potatoes.

    I guess he's thinking: "U don't want to know what I'm gonna do with this sword, honeybull"

    We definitely have to add a bull's costume to ur AnalBlood oddisey

    Longest with chemicals is 5-6 days, although by day 4 or so your body just starts sleeping whether you like it or not. So things like playing video games and then suddenly I am at Walmart stealing hairclips would happen.

    Without chems it is probably in the 36-60 hour range. I have never had full on hallucinations from sleep deprivation, but will see shadows in the corner of my eye, or flying shadow bats, or spatial distortion.
