    Once I had a friend with whom I first discovered what a powerful drug lack of sleep can actually be. We'd stay awake talking on the phone way past 2am, which is when "the drug", as we called it, would commonly kick in. I've had some of the most wonderful conversations in the...

    Story of my life. Maybe I should get a job

    where I can work the graveyard shift. Perhaps sleep would be easier to acquire in the daytime.
