    Some people don't need more than four or five hours to function normally. 8) From what I've read, though, America is a generally sleep-deprived nation. :( Will google for some links later. Sleep deprivation is an ugly thing.

    Maybe that's why it's a torture technique. :?

    Oh and, btw, I saw an article in last week's paper about teens needing even more sleep than do adults. Didn't read the whole article, though, so I can't give details. :?

    I heard that in Japan the people are quite sleep-deprived according to a recent documentary. Over here, you hear a lot of news stories about accidents involving people falling asleep at the wheel. It is also common for students to fall asleep in class on a regular basis.

    That makes sense to me, too, considering the famous (or is it sterotypical? ) Japanese work ethic. :?

    It's not that they're WORKING while at the office, it's just that if you're the first one seen out the door, they figure you're a slacker. No one is in a hurry to go home!

    Whether they're working or not, sadly, a lot of them are not getting enough sleep. :(

    I don't function normally with so little sleep, but I am used to functioning without sleep..

    Do you drive? No offense or anything, but there are some scary stories out there about sleep deprived people behind the wheel. :? IS there any way you can get more sleep, or is life just that overfull at the moment? :(

    Some people function very well on 4-5 hours of sleep per night. My mom, for one. If the party's good enough, I can last 2-3 nights without sleep but I have to "hibernate" when it's over! 8)

    I don't drive so I don't affect others, I sleep on the subway to and from work.. I have sleeping problems, I am often tired, but even when I have an opportunity to sleep, I can't ... It's been like that couple of years

    Valerian root, girl, try Valerian root. You'll sleep like a log, the herbal way...

    I'm perfectly fine with 5 hours of sleep. I either need very little or a whole lot. The area of 7-9 hours usually just makes me tired throughout the day.

    Okay. Here's a general info page on sleep deprivation. Apparently, the average young child through teen needs about nine to ten hours sleep a night. Adults -- eight hours, and older adults tend to need less as they age.

    Just averages. As a lot of folks here have been saying, there's a whole range of what's normal. *shrug*

    For me, in the absence of caffeine, alcohol, or excessive stress, my body wakes up almost exactly at eight hours. So I figure that's about how much sleep I need. But everybody's different. *shrug* 8)

    Hmm. Went to sleep at 9:00-ish, woke up for a couple minutes at around eleven, and was out for the count shortly thereafter until 5:00. It's the ERC for me, today. :shock: Egad! I must not make a habit of this! :lol:
