Excert from Wiki

"The National Sleep Foundation in the United States maintains that seven to nine hours of sleep for adult humans is optimal and that sufficient sleep benefits alertness, memory, problem solving, and overall health, as well as reducing the risk of accidents. A widely publicized 2003 study performed at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine demonstrated that cognitive performance declines with six or fewer hours of sleep."

So, if I want to stay sharp and ready for flamers in The Pit, how many hours of sleep will I need?

Personally, I need a hell of a lot of sleep to get by. Anything less than eight and I'm incredibly moody. Between nine and twelve is my ideal evening.

What about you's folks?

7-8 hours usually works fine for me.

There are threads on this topic already, I believe.

Specifically in regard to UG?

I don't sleep enough, but I try to catch up in my government class...

Is anyone else like me?? Where you lay down in bed, then get bored and get back up and start doing something like guitar, or reading...?
You can call me Aaron.

I can go for about 3-4 days with about 5 hours sleep before I die on the inside and need a day to recover. Usually about 10+ hours.

I always get about 6 hours sleep (wake up at 6, usually go to bed at around 11/12) but I reckon with about 9 I could be perfectly rested.
Pity that never happens.
#13

The numbers in the poll don't go low enough for me. I usually get to bed between 2 and 4am and get up around 6:30am. I don't recommend it. I always feel like ****.
#16

It's always the last day of summer and I've been left out in the cold with no door to get back in

I don't either. I need to find a job working midnights. I used to have one and I got along just fine then. At least then I'd have a reason to be awake.

My mate did the same thing. He never really slept much at night, so got a job at an all night petrol station. The pay is pretty damn good, as well.
#26
If I'm not interrupted, usually 7 or 8 hours is enough sleep for me to feel rested. Sometimes I'm roused from my sleep, then I might sleep 10 hours accumulatively. It sucks working 2nd shift and sharing a room with my younger brother who gets up for school and turns the lights on at 7
#30
The number I like and the number I actually get are rarely the same. Insomnia and my course-load keep cutting my time in half.

Are you asking if midgets can draw people that are themselves smaller than the average person, or if midget drawings in general are smaller?

I have the impression that plenty of people think insomnia is cool and don't actually have it despite having stated so...

sleeping late at night then spending the next day sleeping in does not constitute as insomnia .....

I can sleep for 12 - 14 hours if there's nothing to get done the next day.

I think there's something wrong with me

It's pretty much the exact opposite, actually.

I usually get about... 12.
Then again, I don't do much of anything at the moment.

No, there's nothing wrong with you. It's the rest of these weirdos that have something wrong with them

Everyone thinks they have insomnia. The doctor is told a patient thinks he/she has insomnia as many times as they state a problem with their knee... it cracks.

And the answer is always the same... no you don't. "It's just life."

Innocent till proven guilty. Unless you're disgnosed with it, you don't have it.

I get around 7.5-8.5 hours of sleep every night now that school's started. It feels good.

Its lame.

I prefer 6 or 7, even though I like more sleep than that. After 6 or 7 hours of sleep I just get more and more tired. On school days where I stay up late until 1 AM and I wake up at 6, I feel more awake than if I went to sleep at 9 PM.

If I stay up any later than 2 AM on a school night I usually just pull an all-nighter because I'll just be more tired if I go to sleep. Coffee ftw.

the less you sleep the more time you have to live, sleep the least as possible.
