Its an incredibly interesting disorder. Its completely genetic which is also incredibly interesting. The first time I heard about it was probably a year or two back when there was a documentary on T.V. about it. Apparently the last person that died from it submitted himself to a research facility where they documented the final stages of the disorder. His daughter was prominent in the documentary as a narrator as well.

That's way cool, I assumed it was possible to die from lack of sleep because your body would basically just shut down. I go almost 3 days sometimes without sleep and I almost can't function.

That which does not kill me had better run pretty damn fast.

Sticks and stones may break my bones but hollow points expand on impact.

As an interesting side note, the same documentary discussed something you and others here may be interested in. A gentlemen went to a school where they essentially keep you awake for 72+ hours in a interrogation type setting. Its for those who may be high value targets and teaches students how to deal with sleep deprivation-type torture. It shows you what you can and can't take. VERY interesting stuff!
