Simple questions methinks. :)
Whats the longest you've gone without sleep and why did you stay up that long?

For the past 9 years I go a minimum of 36 hours straight every Friday into Saturday. It's cos of my job. Like (rob) we both work nights.

Sometimes I go longer. I think the longest I've ever gone is 44.

7 days. Don't do this, teh only reason I was up that long is because I suffer from fits of insomnia

Like 55 hours bc they said in A&P class that if you stayed away for a certain amount of time you would hallucinate. I ended up falling asleep in A&P class later in the week.

60 hours.

I started writing an essay on the mechanics of NF-kB (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NF-%CE%BAB) activation and regulation in response to UV radiation (and its significance in skin cancer) on a Friday morning.... and it was supposed to be handed in that day lol. Finished it on Sunday evening at 4,000 words and 50+ sources.

Worth noting that I started hallucinating and shit around the 55 hour mark.

I always try to study through an entire day but I always end up taking a 3 hours sleep between long periods of studying

For me it was right around 90 hours.
No drugs attributed to this, I used to work overnights at my old job and it seriously screwed up my sleep schedule.
And being an insomniac didn't help much.

Insomnia, 1 month 24 days. I was extremely depressed at that time and for some reason that side effect hit me like a ton of bricks.

Nice responses guys :)
