Now thats odd. If my chair had wheels I might be breaking more of a 15 mile range. I tend to get overly dramatic with things that have wheels. Fun for everyone!

That pencil one is interesting, who was the guy that said, 'you know, I wonder how far this pencil will draw a line.'

Isn't that the only purpose of chairs with wheels? to scoot them as far as you can and try t o break land speed records?

Alright peeps, its time for the interesting fact of the day!

Quote:
A person will die from total lack of sleep sooner than from a lack of food.
Death will occur after about 10 days without sleep, while starvation takes a few weeks.
So remember to get your sleep!

Definition of an insomniac:

Quote:
Essentially it's being awake when you wish to, want to, need to be asleep. Another way to put it is, you're not getting the amount of sleep you need to feel "good," "productive," "energetic" or even "ok" in the morning - all descriptions as defined by you.
People who suffer wit Insomnia dont get enough sleep, however they do get some. The fact is that if you did go 10 days straight without sleep then you die.

Insomniacs just get less sleep. If you really get no sleep though after a while you will have 'micro sleeps' which are very brief, and you are unaware you are having them - But if you are denied them too - by torture for example - then you'll die.
