42 hours. That was all I could muster for my so called experiment. I once stayed up for 42 hours which involved a road trip to Michigan and Canada during MLK weekend. Martin Luther King Jr. had a noble dream; I didn’t come close to REM that weekend. I did not come as close I would have liked to my 72 hour record. I came to the conclusion it is hard to stay up without any real purpose and sadly watching hours of X-Files is not a real purpose. Normally, when I denied my self somnolence I had a purpose – writing a paper, doing work, gambling in Canada. I may retry this venture as I was a little disappointed by my capability.
I was also disappointed by the recent posting from Threadless. I designed the Lemon-Aide shirt several years ago. Sadly I never did anything to move the design from paper to cotton. I am not actually disappointed in Threadless, I will probably buy the shirt once they have another 10 dollar tee sale. I am disappointed in myself because I could have been a contender.
