That thing called sleep ! April 18, 2007

Posted by Sharath Rao in humor, life, weird.

Looking at a person can you say whether he has had too much sleep or perhaps too less of it. I stayed awake for some 35 hours at a stretch and then slept for 17 hours at a stretch. When I came to the lab in the afternoon with 17 hours of sleep behind me, the question still was – “Good morning, looks like you did not have enough sleep.” 😉

I wrote something on this before but what happens when you spend a complete day, as in 0000 hours to 2359 hours sleeping, must be a weird sense of loss. 😀 Lets say we start a rumor that says that people only age as long as they are awake. More and more women becoming less and less ‘career-oriented’ (preferring to sleep instead), which appears to be the euphemism used in matrimonial ads to suggest that “I would love to work/not work post marriage” or that “I see someone who is willing to work/not work”. You would probably see more and more and more middle-aged/20 somethings people calling in sick at work. And more and more kids less than 10-12 years waking up all night. There is some point in time where the millions who are flattered when misunderstood as being older switch to feeling devastated about it. Weird humanity in our midst. 🙂

Ok had to comment.

I have stayed up for 36 hours before but a 12 hour sleep was enough to make up for it.

But 17 hours?? Gosh..

I dont know 🙂 ….i agree ..it was more than enough …. this issue apart, its got to do with short-term (over the past week ) history of sleep deprivation.
