Yeah, like everyone else who’s tried polyphasic, we’ve given up. (See the post below for more information on polyphasic sleep). We gave it up last Sunday; it was too painful. We did go for like 60 hours without “real” sleep, but it was too annoying. Chalk one up for the bad guys. :(<p/>

I still think the theory could work – that while REM sleep doesn’t normally come during the first half hour, your brain could learn to get it during that time. But I don’t have the endurance to make that happen now.<p/>
