What was the longest time you went without sleep and how crazy do you think it would be to beat this kid's world record? Longest I went without sleep was about 72 or 84 hours and it was a funky experience filled with holucinations at the end. Don't know how it feels to go for 264 hours though but i want to try it. Think about it.... its your chance to be in the Guinness Book of Records.
"In 1964, a 17-year-old San Diego student named Randy Gardner stayed awake for 264 hours (11 days), a record that won him a place in The Guinness Book of Records. After staving off sleep for a few days with cold showers and loud music, he could no longer focus his eyes and had to give up TV. His speech slurred, and he fell into a silent stupor. Sleep experts now believe that long sleepless stints like Randy's can be dangerous. An experiment conducted at the University of Chicago in 1983 showed that rats died when kept from sleeping for two and a half weeks."
