I do not understand the concept of sleeping for 7 or 8 hours straight. I do enjoy a good nap for a few hours. I have a bed, but it only gets used for...bed stuff...for the most part. I generally just nap while sitting up in a chair. Am I the only weird one here? I am good to roll on a couple hours of sleep.

yup.. I can do a few hours but I feel like crap the next day...

There was a time when I could do 8 hours... and I needed it to function...

When I hit 25ish I couldn't do more then 6 hours without starting to ache...

Now I just stay up until im exhausted... seems to work with a couple beers...

but you need sleep... try going 24 hours... or double that without sleep...

things get pretty funky

Things don't really get funky for me until day 3. That's the point I start hearing the voice of Samuel L. Jackson telling me to go the # to sleep. Just for the record, beer and tobacco are the only drugs I consume.

From an article about sleeping to improve daily performance:
Mika Hakkinen "...you need to rest more than you train, he says, because you just can't improve while you're tired."
www.bbc.co.uk...

Which voice is Samuel L doing? ! The Pulp Fiction voice or Star Wars, or another?

Sleep is just an addiction. Like sugar, coffee or meth... Only you don't have a reason to quit. Infact you'll be locked up if you quit sleep because you will start seeing entities that 'don't exist' in a normal persons psychology. As a kid you often don't want to sleep but you are indoctrinated. It's like lizards, they don't have to hibernate at all and don't need to, but in the right conditions they will.

I'm going to brew a mug of coffee. Then I'm going to hike a few miles. Then I'm going to eat breakfast taco and go to work. I'll probably take a noon siesta.

Yeah, same here. If I get 4 hours I think I've had a good night. And that's after waking up about 5 times.

But I do work night shifts and I do have chemical assistance to keep me nice and fresh (but enough said about that).

I do a lot of kipping in armchairs for an hour or two. Nowt wrong with that.

As I get older (pushing 40) I prefer naps to an 6-8 hour sleep. I find myself napping on my sofa for and hour or two in the evening then up alllll night, till I get sleepy again.

Confusing thread.
You title it that 'Sleep is a waste of time', then state that you only really need two hours.
Then elaborate more in a further post saying that after 3 days these 2 hour sleeps become a problem...
Does that mean that sleep is a 'waste' of time or... ?

Sleep is great. How else can we experience temporary relief from this reality?

Ha. Wait till you have kids mate.

The sleep you claim is wasteful will be cherished and chased like golem and the ring.

Someone here said to me

I would either never want to sleep or dream forever

I'm gonna go try to catch a dream for a few minutes. The barrier between waking and dreams is becoming thinner by the day.

when you sleep, an entire vascular system awakens in your brain. During your sleep hours large amounts of waste created by the brain during waking hours, such as beta amyloid, are funneled out via this vascular network.

Beta amyloid, when left in the brain instead of being removed during sleep, is what makes up the "plaque" that doctors talk about with Alzheimer's patients.

So, it seems that sleep has a very important purpose: the removal of waste/by products created during waking hours, thus helping to prevent diseases like Alzheimer's.
