And I thought I couldn’t sleep

Tony Wright of Penzance

"I'm not a pirate!"

Tony Wright of Penzance has broken the Guinness Record for Sleep Deprivation by staying awake for 11 days and nights straight. Man, I get hazy after a couple of days without sleep. However, Guinness wasn’t impressed. In point of fact, they couldn’t give a fuck, since they no longer officially recognize the category because of the inherent health risks. As a fan of sleep deprivation, I feel Tony Wright deserves much props for his achievement, especially when you consider his choice of venue for the endeavor: a bar. Read how he did it and check out the BBC news video on him.
