While I'm not saying 8 hours of viagra filled sexual exploits couldn't be a life long memory... I think your analogy is flawed to the law of diminishing returns. Your body needs sleep to stay healthy and functional. If you only slept 4 hours per night you'd get another 5 years of life, but you'd also lose a lot more of your life being sick, and having a brain that's not running at full capacity. Would you rather have 5 more years and a crappier life (even getting sick as your immune system would suffer from lack of rest), or 5 less years of quality functional life? To that point when you are sick your body will shut you down after a certain point and force you to sleep for longer than 6 hours...

Another way to say this is... well then why not sleep 0 hours per night and get ALL OF YOUR YEARS OF LIFE back?!?! ...because you would literally die. I take that as the "long run simulation" that proves sleep. Your body needs it, and quality sleep to boot.

Just having fun here, so don't go getting all serious on me.

How about taking it to the other extreme? Sleep 12 hours per day and see if you live to 120, or sleep 16 hours per day, 2/3 of your life, stay in bed flaccid, and don't even get up at night to take a pooh ? Just crap the bed and kick your turds out on the floor, and see if to you can live to 140?

How about sleep 24 hours per day, and live to 160? You would be like KOBI beef only, tender soylent green?

The most driven person I've ever met, one of my fraternity Brothers made it a point to sleep 4 hours a night. Did it ,at least, from college on and ended up retiring a Two Star General. Most people need much more than that, but I think you can train your body to do so. Pat used to sleep in the Lotus position in college and was surprised that he wasn't allowed to do so at ROTC Advanced Camp.


There was an episode of GWAE podcast where Richard was saying he stayed with James Grosjean on a trip, and the guy never slept for more than a few hours at a time. Apparently he was completely immersed in his laptop all night, doing what I am not sure......

Lmao at your cursed life. Maybe are just bad at planning. Who would travel across country and then worry about where you are staying once you get there?

It took me 45 seconds to find a place near the strip for friday through Monday for $50 a night.
Expect the worst and you will never be disappointed.

Also depends on how olf the OP is. If he is 21-26, it's a reasonable mistake. If he is older than that, he really should have known better.
In both The Hunger Games and in gambling, may the odds be ever in your favor. :D I smoked pot once as a rebellious 15 year old is nowhere as near as bad as I am on Cocaine right now and The U.S. Customs and Border knows it! :/ "For about the 4096th time, let me offer a radical idea to those of you who don't like Nathan -- block her and don't visit Nathan's Corner.
