Staying up late into the wee hours of the night meeting project deadlines and playing a certain video game from hell often leads to being sleepy all day. My addiction to insomnia is not new really but is a long, well developed art. Solidified during the days of high school. The trick is to go to sleep before the sun comes up. Then the following day not to drive or do anything that requires you full attention. Avoiding bright lights as much as possible.
It only works for 2 days however. Then after that it's just all fuzzy. Night clubs are totally out of the question.

  1. you hit the nail on the head, my friend. Nightclubs are totally out of the question. It's also a good idea to schedule your insomnia days around the days off you have from work, as I failed to do today...I'm gonna be in a daze all night.

  2. How long can a person go without sleep before they actually die? I heard 4 days or 96 hours.

  3. I have never heard anybody actually die from sleep deprevation. I suspect that you will fall a sleep eventually even if your body has to force you to sleep.
