I did agree once upon a time. But...

So if you want to improve your lap times, you want to sleep.

No.
What we all need is to sleep consistently 7-9 hours a day for a week ;)

On a good night I get about 5 hours ! Usually about 4 though .

So basically the question is will you get cancer or Alzheimer's first ?

Gist of the vid, with less than 7 hours a night your body and mind perform at least 30% less, stands about the same in increased risk of developing Alzheimer's, and lack of sleep now considered a carcinogenic.
And your natural testosterone levels are that of a man at least 10 years older than you.

So not only does lack of sleep kill you faster, you are also less of a man.

I have personally had a decent night, 7+.
And just beaten my personal Nurburg combined time with about 30 seconds.

Sleep is for winners, or better put, sleep to win.

Still got another 20-30 seconds to go though..

You must be fun at parties...



Oh wait, you never get invited to one because you're always going to bed at 9pm. :p

And you get to celebrate your own 80th birthday all alone because everyone else you knew is dead by then because of sleep deprivation.

Certainly don't live like a health nut, I just try stay rested, cause the alternative makes me behave like som truly toxic monster.
Trust me, if I only got 4-5 hours a night over a long enough period, I would probably end up in jail.

The actual plan is to die at 75 in some VR related DIY-electrical accident.
Or I succeed in making a motion platform capable of catapulting me into the ceiling.

Well what's your problem with the sleep then ! Why deprive yourself of partying or having fun past 9pm just to aim for death by at 75 ?
The reason i dont get sleep is because of chronic pain ! I can sleep within 5 seconds of my head hitting the pillow but will wake within an hour because i moved and pain wakes me ! I may as well be up doing something i enjoy instead of just laying there sleep , wake , sleep , wake for hours and just get it when i can .
Lack of sleep aint going to be what kills me .

Why would you make such a device? I mean, whatever floats your boat, but creating a device for catapulting you into the ceiling seems... odd.

I imagine my last hours at 75+ involving busty women and a bubble bath filled with champagne, but as I said whatever floats your boat :p

I have a newborn.
7 hours? I wish.

Actually, he’d been really good from 1 month til 4 months but the last few weeks he’s up every 40 minutes through the night. Jinxed myself hadn’t I :rolleyes:

I had him figured out in the first few weeks but this time I’m stumped.

My son did well the first 4 weeks or so, then until he was 1.5 years old getting him to sleep every single day was hell. Fixed itself, like it always does (and usually much sooner than that ;)).

These astonishing baby cages were invented in America in 1922. This picture taken in 1934 shows a wire cage which East Poplar borough council in London proposed to fix to the outside of their buildings

I'm totally with you on the sleep-part (not so much on the "get catapulted into the ceiling part").
Sleep deprivation granted me a grand Mal seizure (epileptical attack) when I was 21. Since then I try my best to get proper sleep, which is far from easy when it's 26+įC in you bedroom at night. :(

I guess I could see it as "training", since my first baby daughter is arriving very soon! :D

We are old. Next this thread will turn into what pills we are taking and how many.lol I hear you with the pain and sleeping part though. My shoulder and neck are screwed from a car accident(no it wasn't my fault:p) so thats about how my nights go too.

They do! Holy crap. Just when you start getting the hang of it they change completely and start doing new things out of the blue. Incredible how switched on they are, too.

No training for being a dad. It’s a completely new challenge different to anything you’ve ever come across.
Just... be confident, you got this. They’re not aliens.

Still got another 20-30 seconds to go though..

I haven't slept for more than 4 or 5 hours straight at one time in probably 15 years or more. But I take about a 90 minute nap each night as soon as I get home from work so technically I get around 6 hours total a night.

The Isle Of Man highlight show is cutting into my playing time this week because it comes on so late here in the US. I'll make up for it next week though.

As a father of five and the youngest turning 14 i can happily tell you: i'm glad that period has passed...i'm very happy with my children but five times is really enough...:p
That's why i am one of the few who has such a good relation with his mother in law...she had nine (of course i snatched up the youngest one lol)

Nothing as severe for me, but I have seemingly what could be epilepsy related, dizzy spells, paranoia attacks, and a general state of rage, I wasn't joking when I said I'd probably be in jail if I was forcing myself to 4-5 hours a night.
Trust me. That guy isn't fun at parties.

Sleeping a full night sorts practically all of it, I have in addition lately dropped candy and junk food so I have lost almost 16 kg with all the benefits of that, still got plenty to go though. And I'm still eating for a small family with every meal.
I have simply dropped the sugary karb crap, still plenty of normal karbs.

I ran past midnight last night for two reasons. One is that it was Thursday and I can make up for it tonight since I don't have to get up early on Saturday. And two I was running my first full race at LeMans Vintage in the Ferrari 512S and after 6 attempts I had not even fully finished one. Twice I spun out of the lead on the last lap. Finally on that 7th attempt I finished and actually won and it was almost 12:30 but at least I didn't go to bed angry.
