    delayed sleep phase disorder is something I'd like to look into having some tests on. I've experienced the telltale signs since childhood, actually.

    People tend to assume I never sleep or I sleep all the time; neither of which is true- I just tend to sleep at very different hours than most. I'm about 3-4hrs behind the average person, it seems.

    Your metabolism might be slow so you make up for it with more sleep.
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    No, @CzeCze however, perhaps it applies?

    Ditto. Although I've been sleeping, like, 5 and a half to 6 hours lately. I gotta watch out, I know, but...



    I get to sleep 'bout 8 hours on weekends, though - I set my alarm clock and everything. Kind of a perfectionistic thing.

    That, exactly that. 7.5 hours always seems optimal, but I always want more, then when I get more, I feel stupid and groggy all morning.

    i have problems waking up earlier than i want to, i could use more sleep but it's hard for me to fall back asleep once i've already woken up. and when i can force myself to sleep again, i have weird dreams and wake up really groggy and tired. probably 7 or 8 would be ideal for me.

    Between 4 and 6 hours.

    Sometimes it's hard to sleep.

    However I am painfully aware that I'm human and need my sleep, so; I do like to sleep.
    Also, power naps and, stuff.
    'Power naps are where you sleep for like 15 minutes or; Something.' - But I rarely do those.
    Most I can do with out freaking out is 2 days awake, that's why I go out my way to sleep if I can, but; Sometimes it's hard to sleep.

    IF... There was a way to function with out sleep, life would be more productive, but at the end of the day, which is today, we all need sleep, EVERY one of us, I persume.

    Between 6 and 8, but I really need it every night. If/when I sleep less, I can't easily "make up" for it the next day.
