Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

Laak and Antonio could've done something really funny.

Prior to the event they hype up Antonio as the guy that will be going for the record. Laak is one of the original players at the table though. Antonio plays 50 hours or whatever and then quits, but because Laak is still playing the attention naturally shifts to him Laak then surprises everyone with his epic record and wins a bunch of bizarre side bets.

He's right when he says he might as well continue because he's never going to be there again.

Agreed. He has obviously been getting too much sleep in the past. Good to see he finally rectified the problem.

Is he gunning for 120+ now? that guy who was basically a zombie after 72 hours has got to be feeling so inadequate right now.

Amazing display of stamina. I get less than 6 hours sleep 2 days in a row and I become non-functional.

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

I think that is you're able to power nap this challenge is soo much easier. I power nap of 30 minutes would allow your body to continue for ~9 hours more.

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

Wow, he's really serious about this. Tbh I thought this was gonna be some half-assed attempt to gain attention. He's definitely a lot more coherent at 81 than I would expect. I've been awake for ~80 hours straight and I was hallucinating by 72.

Re: Phil Laak to attempt World Record Session

You could also argue that a power nap would actually hinder his progress. It's probably better he dosen't fall asleep at all. I doubt he would be achieving REM in a half hour
