What's the longest you have been up?
 
So I had a shitty finals schedule, and I am sure many of you guys from time to time have to stay up all night but what's the longest amount of time?

I pull all nighers all the time but I rarely am I up for 24 hours. Last several days I was up for 48 hours and it sucked a big one. Actually I got to 36 and couldn't study anymore and I slept for 15 minutes and at 40 hours I slept for another 25 mins. So all in all I got about 40 mins of sleep over 48 hours, possibly the worst experience in my life.

But as soon as I came home from my final, my bed felt awesome. Slipping in felt better than sex, no lie lol.

I was up for 66 hours once. Kind of a boring story, really. I was visiting my hometown during a 3 day weekend. I was trying to fit visiting family during the day and partying with my friends in Blacksburg at night. You're right, sleep was so glorious that Saturday night.

I had it up for almost four hours once when I was twenty one...

Maybe it's me, but Im of the persuasion that before finals sleep is more important than studying all night. I know when Im that tired I simply can't think.

Yeah. No amount of studying that kept me up substantially longer than normal was worth it for me. It simply didn't help.

I did 36 straight and 48 with 3 hours sleep for finals.

I had a friend who stayed up 4 days straight for finals. His trick, He would swallow speed whenever he needed it.

David Blaine is planning on performing a stunt to see how long he can stay up.

ďItís been tried before. In 1959, Peter Tripp stayed awake eight days, but it resulted in permanent brain damage. In 1964, 17-year-old Randy Gardner did it for a high school science project. He lasted 11Ĺ days but recovered fully. No damage. A guy in London tried but fell short. Another did 19 hours [sic] but slept two hours each night, so that doesnít count. Also he was seated in a rocking chair. If I do this thing, which you claim Iím doing, Iíll do it on my feet. Standing up."

I've never pulled an all-nighter for an exam. I'm with the Daseal and FRPLG - I needs my sleep.

I never have done the all nighter. If I don't get at least six hours of sleep I'm cranky and can't think straight. Basically I become a crotchety old man, lol.

i think my record stands around 35 hours straight for an exam... which i will hopefully never have to do again.

I have read more information regarding pulling all nighters and they pretty much agree with this study.

I disagree. Because if you truly just don't know the information how will you do any better? What you are implying is if you have been studying two days before. I was in a bad situation in terms of finals, so if I slept I would have done worst because I simply did not know enough of the material.

Nowadays you can do aderol, which is pretty much low key speed. Same effects without being very jumpy.
