    About 27-28 hours...

    Ran a 24-hour ultra-marathon a few years ago... got up about 2 hours before the race to eat a rather large breakfast and prepare for the race, then 24 hours non-stop running and then back to the hotel for a shower and sleep...

    I could never pull more than a 24-28 or so hour fest. Sometimes while writing, I would have a pot of coffee in one hand, and the keyboard by the other, but I would have to do so standing up, walking around before putting out that next footnote. I always wished I could have written better while being exhausted or could stand to be up that long.

    I voted tiger blood, but my record is about 4 1/2 days. But it was my first time at burning man, and was 19. So you figure it out

    I hallucinated from lack of sleep. Walls would take on patterns like snakeskin. People would slowly change shapes. I had no sense of distance and couldn't pick things up. This was at the rehab hospital after my hip replacement. And I wasn't on steroids. Restoril sleeping pills brought me an hour a night of sleep. They really wanted me out of the hospital so I could go home. No more insomnia.

    I do remember being afraid of falling asleep. Like something bad would happen. Or maybe something terrifying.

    68 hours, completing a thirty day upkeep in two weeks, including emergency maintenance on a failed MSW pump and such like.

    The days preceding that were typically less than 2 hours of sleep a day, since the nice young ladies in the bars of Subic Bay were active little wenches.

    Mayor Snorkum was a heck of a lot younger then.

    That's a lot of awakeness. I seriously wonder if a lack of sleep causes memory problems. It was either that or the anestisia keeping me from remembering where I put the damn keys.

    About 3 days, but it was a great weekend.
    So follow me into the desert

    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    My wife used to go weeks without sleeping a wink. All that snoring was just for show. But, every morning I'd hear, "I didn't sleep a wink." I think people who claim really long periods are actually doing a lot of napping in there. There's a difference between not going to bed and not sleeping.

    I worked 29 hours straight once and then I told my boss that I could keep my eyes open but my brain had shut down.

    Slightly under 48 hours. I've had to take red-eye flights for work a couple times, and I can't sleep on planes.

    The worst was when I got sent to Germany for training purposes. I took a red-eye that left Detroit about 5 PM and got into Frankfurt at 7 AM. Then had to take a train to Stuttgart, pick up a rental car, and drive about 20 miles to Abstatt, all after being up for about 20 hours and in a country where I only barely spoke the language. Then I had to go into the office and put in a full 8 hours work. Not fun.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
