Ever since I got mono I've always woken up still tired. I can sleep for 15 hours and still feel tired when I wake up. It's pretty annoying.

Oh and number 3, not for me. In my dreams I'm like Peter North.

13 is completely false.

There is no evidence proving that you can die from sleep. In fact, its not even truly known how much sleep you actually need. 8 hours is just elementary school lore (i.e. you only have 5 senses, taste buds are separated on your tongue, et al)

Also, the record for staying awake without stimulants is 11 days...

11 days without sleep?

I feel like crap just after 1 all-nighter, but that is probably because brain keeps working when it needs rest. (i.e. pre-exam-cram-session)

Are video games considered stimulants? I can see myself going maybe 2 nights at most without a sleep if I get a really cool game. I can already predict blurred vision, slow reflexes, weird perspectives on things, etc.

Any info on the person with 11 days no sleep ordeal?

There is a disease called Fatal Insomnia (that only affects around 100 people in the world). As the disease progresses the victims cannot sleep and eventually die from it. They even had a special about it on Discovery or NatGeo, I forger which: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fatal_familial_insomnia

And, lack of sleep is linked to early death: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...0924092553.htm

Early death, maybe, but not the instant death as the chart suggests.

And the kid that stayed up in the 60's had some hallucinations and stuff but he was fine.
I guess when he finally went to sleep he rested fro 14 hours straight, then stayed up for 24 hours, then resumed normal sleeping patterns

I pulled 2 straight all nighters before taking the SAT. Before I left to take the test, I think I hallucinated because I swore I saw a tarantula in my closet
