What Would You Do If You Didn't Need Sleep?

It is viewed by many as the badge of honor when and often bragging rights when very little sleep is needed. For me personally, I could never wear such badge as I require a full nights rest of solid uninterrupted land of nod drooling on my pillow....sleep! Not to mention the fact that researchers have studied sleep or the lack there of and have proven that most people are not on their game when they lack sleep. Concentration levels dip. Performance slides down the scale. And enthusiasm dives. Then there is the other study that suggests no sleep means no new brain cells.

Let's just pretend for a moment that sleep is not a requirement. Your body no longer needs it. That being the case, if you could live perfectly well without sleeping, if you had no need to sleep at all, how would you spend all your nights?

aside from the fact that i love sleeping and savor every minute i get now (being a parent) i would spend nights working on all those creative projects i never seem to have enough time for. i would alos take night classes like dance, more yoga, and more math classes. (as much as i HATE math)

Play Star Wars The Force Unleashed on my kid's Wii. No, really I would do stuff to my house. Like organize and clean my basement. Build my mini ramp in the garage like I keep saying I'm going to do. Clean my car. Be really, really bored after a week. 

I don't want to die without any scars.

i barely ever sleep anyway...but i imagine if i could go with no sleep at all, the creative juices would flow at all times, and i'd actually finish writing the book i started over 3 years ago.  and maybe i'd get all the handbag designs i have off of paper and into production...that'd be sweet...

Haha.. I saw the Seinfeld episode the other night where Kramer said he was going to be like Da Vinci and sleep a few minutes every so many hours.  Kramer was such a goof.  Me?  I've been doing well on 4-6 hrs a night for a couple of years.  It's nice to get 6 but not necessary for me.  But needing NO sleep?  I would probably start a sideline business.  Maybe handcarved carousel ponies. Or home-built computers.  Or silk-screening.  Or I could be a hooker.

I can go a few nights a week with 5 or so hours but then on the weekend i need to make up for it. I like sleeping though and I generally don't deprive myself of it often.....unless I got a new book or good online game.

If I didn't need sleep I would read more, play more xbox live and maybe get a job I can do from home to earn a few extra bucks. Oh yeah and learn how to play guitar finally :)
