DailyDirt: Sleeping Might Not Be Over-rated

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

It’s still a bit mysterious why sleep is so necessary. Some people seem to need more than others, and there’s at least one guy who claims he doesn’t need sleep at all. Here are just a few more tidbits on the topic of sleeping, for all of you sleepyheads and night owls.

By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

Narcolepsy suffer confirms that restful sleep is not over rated

I suffer from Narcolepsy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narcolepsy

When I sleep I go into REM sleep nearly instantly so my brain never gets any restful sleep.

The only way I can get good restful sleep is to take expensive medication Xyrem which is a form of GHB, one of the “date rape” drugs.

SmartSleep project

Hi, guys. I am a polyphasic sleeper for almost 2 years and I sleep 4,5 hours a day. Me and my friends made lots of experiments on this fied and we want to share our experience. We decided to create a mobile application that would be an essential guide to polyphasic sleep experience for everyone.

We alredy have a functioning prototype that we use in our everyday life, but we need funds to finish it and launch to pruduction. So we created a company on kickstarter.

We apreciate any feedback, proposals and contributions. If you have any questions please contact us.
