I thrive on no sleep.
I subsist on staying awake.
I eat "no sleep" for dinner.
I would not know what to do with 8 hours of sleep.
I would run out of dreams within the first 1.5 hours.

Yeah----sleep is a waste of time. If I'm on a schedule, I'll normally get 3-4 hours of sleep a night. Others mention something might be wrong, but it seems to work for me. My longest time with no sleep is around 36 hours.
Night owl for life.
The single best thing to do is watch a movie. Pick yourself out a DVD, or something onDemand etc.... and have at it. If that's not enough, grab a Super Cuban Grill from 7/11, have them press it for you....and yea, it's good. :)

Hey... I watched The Great Scape and now I am watching The Thomas Crown Affair.

You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

There is only one tactical principle which is not subject to change. It is to use the means at hand to inflict the maximum amount of wound, death, and destruction on the enemy in the minimum amount of time."

I get cranky after staying awake after 34 hrs. Like to get 7-8 hrs. Normally get 6-7. I will catch up on all the missed sleep when I am dead. Nothing better to do.
One of my favorite quotes was from a Battalion Commander who always said, "You have all the time in the world from midnight to 0600". Sleep is way overrated.

Captain von Trapp: If the Nazis take over Austria, I have no doubt, Herr Zeller, that you will be the entire trumpet section.
Herr Zeller: You flatter me, Captain.
Captain von Trapp: Oh, how clumsy of me - I meant to accuse you.
I worked 3ed shift for 3 years and got laid off. Now that I am just focusing on school, i have yet to adjust back to my normal sleep pattern.... Im up all night and sleep during the afternoon.
I believe in gun control...... Thats why I use TWO hands.
Never was an insomniac until these darn forums came along...
Treat me good, I'll treat you better. Treat me bad, I'll treat you worse.
I work 12 hour nights so staying up at night is not a problem.
I work third shift as well (railroad). There wasn't enough work today, and with the snow here in CT, they cancelled my shift. I like nights, but my weekends are spent sleeping. Can't wait for a day shift job, normal, 9-5, M-F.
I work seven days out of every two weeks. I could go back to a 'normal' M-F shift, but I wouldn't like it. This is my three day weekend BTW, and I never work more than three in a row unless it's time and a half or double. If I take two vacation days I can have a whole week off. If I worked nights---I'd never sleep.
At least I know I'm not the only one.4-5 hours a night is all I can handle.Plenty of time to sleep when your dead.
