"You’d think going without sleep for that long may have its drawbacks, but not for the man in central Quang Nam province who has never been ill after decades of insomnia."

Nevermind Ripley's or guiness This should have been front page news all over the world. Why not? Because it is not true. Period.

Gah you sure to come to an absolute conclusion quick, eh? Given the facts we were, it's not too hard. It would have been all over CNN, MSNBC, Ripley's, Guiness, everywhere. It wasn't. Know why? Because it's not true. --Jon

Actually, this topic has been touched on by Guiness, I don't know about Ripley's, but here's an excerpt from Sleeplessness from my Guiness book of world records 1997... Sleeplessness The longest recorded period for which a person has voluntarily gone without sleep is 453 hours 40 minutes by Robert McDonald of California in a rocking chair on Mar-14 to Apr 2, 1986. Victims of the very rare condition chronic colestites (total insomnia) have been known to go without definable sleep for many years. Jesus de Frutos (b 1925) of Segovia, Spain asserts that he has only dozed since 1954. So perhaps thi... [More]

I think your right, he has got everyone on. Your body needs its rest. You can rest your body without sleeping. A friend sleeps only 2-3 hours a night and i got a book which tells several cases of insomnia. It told of one person who hasn't slept in 60+ years. He just saids he sit on a rocking chair until he feels rested.

That is so weird..... i wonder if he needs to sit extra long hours just to get enough rest tho because dun u need some rest for the brain etc too .... going without sleep is weird, i'd be so tired but look at all the extra hours u can muck about in ..... i got a friend who doesnt sleep very much either, i think hes crazy but he said hes made of steel lmao

I wouldn't mind not sleeping at all, it's a waste of time.. but damn when I only sleep like 2/3 hours my back hurts and I feel kinda funny lol can't imagine going a lot more without sleep.

No way that this is true. One week without sleep and you're like on an LSD trip. That man would have dropped dead a long time ago. Three decades without sleep... come on. Or maybe he's been subject to tests by extraterrestrials that somehow eradicated his need for sleep. Or maybe he's a super soldier. Or maybe it's all just a load of crap.
