The wonder that is Television actually had a good subject on tonight and one currently close to my heart. Sleep depravation.
I am currently suffering from lack of sleep, insomnia and tiredness caused by a severe cold & flu. I feel very much like making rude gestures at Kaolian for spreading forum Sars to me via this forum!
However, to not lose track of the post.
The Television programme is about an experiment being carried out over 7 days. Much like 'Big brother' a hoard of young people are made to live in a controlled environment. The stipulation of the stay being that they must not sleep. I beleive they get one hour a day or so for medical reasons but to all intents and purposes they are being denied normal sleep patterns. Seeing their behaviour change as time passes has been most amusing and also reflective on my current status (as sleep denied and stressed out ***** from ****).
For myself, I cannot make much over 24 hours without sleep. I simply pass out regardless in a sodden heap on the floor. I have even fallen asleep in nightclubs with all the loud music playing around me
So my question is, how long can you go without real sleep. What is your reaction to it?
