So... I've been awake for about 3 days straight now without so much as a blink to rest my poor tired red eyes... and i've been thinking... what would the world be like if NOONE got ANY sleep... If the entire world was ruled by insomniacs... the world would probably be a more cranky place to live... Think about it, it would almost be reminisent of night of the living dead... people walking around barely able to talk to because of exhaustion... I guess my discussion topic is more of a question, what would the world be like if insomniacs ruled the world?!?!?!?!? scary thought i know... especially when you bring into account the thought of trnasportation lol... My philosiphical question of the day... oh and by the way i think lack of sleep takes a huge toll on spelling because i aint doin to good with that right now lol. Think about it and let me know your thoughts maybe i'll write a book someday.

Well, assuming no one could get any sleep... I'd have to say everyone would just collapse eventually, not really sleeping, more like a coma. Or just keel over and die, due to not having the positive effects of sleeping. Of course the flip side is, if everyone was awake 24/7 then there'd be some sort of alternative developed to get the positive effects of sleeping, without sleeping (No, I don't mean coffee, something that doesn't contain caffeine). Perhaps if we used meditation (assuming it is not considered sleep, that is)
