Fact of the Day: Staying Awake is Hard


The world record for most days without sleep (with proof) goes to Randy Garnder who stayed awake for about 11 days in 1964. Garnder was reported to have endured the feat quite well besides little problems like mood changes, bad tempers, and loss of concentration. After his record he went to sleep for about 15 hours, and went back to a normal sleep schedule rather quickly.

  1. I wonder how much more he accomplished in all those days (besides the record).

  2. I went 2 days without sleep once and it was awful. I can't imagine what 11 days feels like @_@

  4. 11 days is insane... I've suffered with inability to sleep properly before, but I still managed to get at least an hour or two before being wide awake again.
