When was the last time you were awake for at least 24 hours?



When was the last time you were awake for at least 24 hours (continuously)?

I don't recall exactly, but I think it may have been last year. I woke up at 3 or 3:30am to go to the airport, was in a plane for a few hours, then hung out with a friend and we ended up being out and about until at least four in the morning.

It's not something I enjoy doing anymore. Too old.

Probably 10-12 years ago.

About 5 years ago. I used to work for an event production company and we had a few times where we had to travel, load in the gear, run the event and tear it down. I cleared 24 hours several times in the 8 years I worked there.

What does the picture of the gay Thai prostitute have to do with the topic?

I remember when Final Fantasy VII came out in 1997 I literally played it over 30 hours straight without so much as even getting up to go the bathroom or to get something to eat. I used to go on video game "marathons" like that pretty often, but I just can't do it anymore now that I'm older.

The last time I can remember for sure would have been in 1997 or 1998 after I discovered chat rooms. I remember ICQing (remember ICQ?) my oldest brother (who was/is also a nerd) that I'd been online for 24 hours straight and his reply was, "Your ISP must love you."

Oh, and I was no teenager. I was 32 at the time.

Re: When was the last time you were awake for at least 24 hours?

It's been a long time--probably when I moved back to the States from England in 2003. I was up at 6AM local time London and didn't get to bed until after midnight local time New York. It might not have been quite 24 hours, but it was damn close.

When I fly to Europe now, I take a pill and get a few hours on the plane. I'd be dead otherwise.

That's The Bus' friend who helped him stay up. When he says out and about, he's talking about their penises being out of their pants and playing sword fight.

P.S.-Your soooo cool for calling a Thai prostitute gay.

It's been awhile since I've been awake 24 hours straight. I treasure my sleep too much now to be doing that shit.

Don't recall, but every once in awhile I'll stay up until 3am playing games. I get up at 6 for work, so that's 21 hours. It's not that rough.

Not too long ago. Went to a casino, partied & gambled, lost track of time.

I've had a few incidents recently where I've noted that if I was up for another hour or so, I'd have been up 24 hours straight...but haven't quite made it. Probably been a few years.

Re: When was the last time you were awake for at least 24 hours?

When my daughter was born in April a few months ago. I think I was up for about 30 hours that day. Worst was when my son was born. Wife went into labor at 8pm at night. After all was said and done, she got a C section done that next day at 2pm. Was up with him that night in the room. I think I was up nearly 48 hours then, and I was delirious.

Re: When was the last time you were awake for at least 24 hours?

I'm 34 and I still go a full 24hours regularly, maybe 3 or 4 times a year. I'll have a work deadline and often I haven't budgeted my time as well as I should, so I'll wind up staying up till 7 or 8 in the morning getting things done, then figure there is no sense going to sleep now, it'll just mess up my schedule so while I might doze here and there for a few minutes, I force myself to stay awake until evening. It is always a shitty day and I always promis myself this is the last time.
