You should really just sleep like a normal human being instead of trying to fuck up your body because the internet told you it would make you an "uberman".

+1

It's just what people do who have so much time on their hands to avoid actual work.

No he was just resting his eyes.  Unremorsefully.

There's a hormone called Melatonin which (for most people) makes you feel sleepy and makes you sleep deeper, which means you need less sleep. Something in the order of 7 hours instead of 8. It's freely available in the US. In Europe the dosage you can get over the counter is restricted in some countries.

Makes me groggy in the mornings, actually.

Yeah, we should never try to do new things to improve ourselves.

Yes, passing out wherever you are, whatever you're doing, six times a day is a definite improvement.  Unless you have a job, responsibilities, or a desire to live past 30.

Wait, you're the guy who argues that we'd have a safe and just society if government was eliminated and every man, woman, and child had an arsenal of weapons to threaten each other with, right?

I guess what I'm trying to say is that doing new things and discovering new ideas can backfire if you're unable to tell which ones are completely retarded.

"Strenuous".

Btw, real men don't need alarms.

I wake up 5 minutes before my alarm goes off everyday.

Take less of it. I sometimes take as little as 0.75 mg.

I don't know much more than wikipedia could tell you, medically, but I can tell you some people think it's total bunk, others say it works great.

I found it to be a nice "motivator," i.e. it's worthless if you want to stay up anyway, because you don't feel "drowsy" the way doxylamine and diphenhydramine make you feel when you first take them, so you can push right through it. It just makes it easier to get started sleeping when I'm ready, for me. It also reminds me that I want to be sleeping, and not up doing something else, because I took it. But a sugar pill would probably serve the same purpose in that case.

Take less of it. I sometimes take as little as 0.75 mg.

I might try this, but I need something to really push me in the right direction, and even 3mg tabs of melatonin doesn't quite get me where I need to be to get started into sleep mode, and still leaves me groggy.

Surprising, you actually look pretty sharp in this one, even thought you say you're tired.

Just out of curiosity, what are you trying to get out of this? Is it just an experiment to see how it works?

At night you're either meditating, reading or programming? Ouch! Try doing things that require you to move, or some active engagement besides purely mental. Either physical activities, or gaming.

I guess I could take a walk down the street with my dog every once in awhile. Thanks... you're right.

How are you on your third attempt, yet none of them have lasted longer than the amount of time a normal teenager could stay awake with no naps at all?

The answer to this is obvious: A normal teenager would not try to take 20 minute naps inbetween, in an attempt to reboot his pattern into something sustainable. But I suspect you weren't looking for an answer, but rather an attempt at being sarcastic.
