What Would Happen If You Just Stopped Sleeping Forever

By Eric Limer on at

It's a Monday, so chances are you want to crawl back home and into bed, and sleep the day away. But what good is all that comatose-time doing you anyway? What if you just cut it out and were productive or something, instead?

We all know what it's like to go a night or two without sleep, but ASAP Science digs into what happens in the long-haul. For the most part, going totally sleepless won't do you any permanent harm, but the results of not sleeping forever (or close to it, anyway) is lacking. Maybe it's time to pull a few (months of) all-nighters to study it.

Or, you know, time to go take a nap. [ASAP Science]
