Eight days, before I was checked into the hospital. I keep a supply of tranquilizers on hand now and knock myself out whenever I pass three.
Funny I saw this now. I got a few hours of sleep this morning after nearly 4 days without sleep, and thanks to this thread I just figured out why.
Among other things I have PTSD and the 6th anniversary of the event that caused it, was yesterday at 12:02 AM. And no this is no April fools joke.
54 hours. I was working as a regional airline pilot and a grociery store clerk. I had to work at the store because my wages at the regional airline totaled $17,000 for the year. Hope you feel safe on them there RJ's . The only people that are willing to do that are straight out of college and don't have the experience to do anything else.
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
Probably about 36 hours, but I have averaged 4-5 hours of sleep per night for about 20 years or more. Used to be a chronic insomniac, but now I'm just used to functioning on very little sleep.

- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
52 hours... did it a long time ago and never, ever want to do it again. I'm a wuss and cherish what little sleep I get.
60 hours, but I normally am up for 18 or 19 hours a day. I am use to little sleep. No coffee either.
Probably around 30 hours, I can't say up more than that before passing out.
I've actually been up 23 hours straight right now, and I soon am about to pass out

If there's a god, baby she won't mind.
