The 1 o'clock-in-the-morning Thread

Welcome to the 1 o'clock thread. This is pretty much off-topic, but there's a rule:
you can only post after 1 o'clock, your time.

Just to be specific:
  • Once you go to sleep, even a nap, you can't post until the next day.
  • If you manage to polyphastically sleep, or you don't go to bed until 6AM, somehow making you awake at 1, wait until you're tired.

The point is to see how we are on the brink of insanity... this post, as you may or may not see, was written around 1... and I think it shows.

first morning comment from a cell phone!!!!!!!
Wow, personal best here. I've been up 'till 3:00 reading Little Brother. I enjoy reading at night because it's the only time I can get some peace and quiet!
It's a good book to read like that, I opened the file around 8pm one night and finished it in the early hours...
Yea. I normally don't go past 1 or 2AM when reading. I looked up at the clock and did a double take. I could have gone longer, but I figured I was at the end of the chapter and needed to draw the line somewhere.

I also set a personal record for longest sleep-in, 1PM.
I got caught up in the book because I hadn't slept much and started reading and that was it...
Yea, that book is addicting! Once you start it's hard to stop. I've never stayed up 'till 4:00AM reading a book. Maybe once with one of the Harry Potter books, I don't remember.
Yeah I've read it a couple of times now and It's a great book, something I've recommended to my mum and brother, mu brother wasn't too in to it because he's a little devoid of issues like that and my mum hasn't started but wants to read it...

I've officially been up since 4:30pm yesterday (which is when I woke up[setting my record])... (its 7pm here)
Heads up, KANahas. If you use the brackets, it makes it a link. Even if it's not http://

So when doing parenthesis inside parenthesis I use these {

(if not it looks like [this this])
Thanks I forgot about that........... I was saying that's the longest time I've slept in...
Yeah, I was just letting you know. We actually have a member here who has been a member for a long time and still does that. But then again he doesn't put the http:// at the beginning of the site when he types it in, so it always comes out like:
http://www.instructables.com/community/the-1-oclock-Thread/www.google.com
But just a heads that you need to put the http at the beginning of a link, for future reference.

Been up since 7am yesterday. Six more hours till I can sleep. Well maybe I can sleep a little as I'm driving home. I'm in the car, which is good. It's hard to sleep when I ride the motorcycle.
I hope you are not the one behind the wheel...
I was. I made it home, but don't remember about 20 miles of it.
I guess I have to thank you for keeping car insurance rates high. Drive smarter, not harder.
Haven't filed a claim in over 20 years. You might look to the folks on the cell phone.
I pay higher insurance because of others who don't wear their seatbelts or helmets. I also pay higher insurance because of others who neglect to carry any at all.
Some are wise, some are other wise.

It's 4:04 I need to snore. It's 4:41 My day's not done. At 6:01 I'll see the sun. By 9:03 It's bed for me!!! Awake so long, Where? oh Where Did my Life Go wrong? Even with an education, I'm a night shift slob. What's my vocation? Looking for a daytime job!
Back again! Just thought I'd share one of the best scenes of Indiana Jones.

Another post. I'm in the same time-zone as the Instructables clock BTW.

I'm actually not that tired.

Noooo! I got distracted and missed my timing!
Sweet! My first 1 o'clock post. I feel pretty normal, clearheaded, no weird thoughts in my head...other than my no-hat woman, things are pretty quiet...
. Good morning!

Right, I qualify properly now - as I type it's 00:34 UK time.

I'm watching Serenity on DVD and avoiding going to bed, even though I am dead tired - Kitewife is away for the night, taking #2 son for his next lot of lithotripsy. They're not back until ten tomorrow night.

You know, I really don't like going to bed alone...
:(
:-( I've just found out they may not be home tonight, either, because he's last on the list.
Oh, dear. So very sorry to hear that.

:-)


They're on the train back!

#2 son bounces back so quickly from general anaesthetic, it's unreal.
YAY! I'm happy for you! Say hi to Kitewife and #2 for me. :)

Ha! it's one o'clock and I still have precision timing! Although, if I went on a long rant right now it would be ripe with errors.
> it would be ripe with errors.
. Ah-hemm! Ripe vs. rife. heehee
. Yeah. We knew what you meant, but I just couldn't resist. Context made the error quite humorous (to me, anyway).
.
. I'm surprised I caught it before Kiteman (AKA The Spelling/Grammar Nazi) did. Score one for the Yanks! And, yes, humorous IS the correct spelling. :P
I already saw that - even after his changes, it's still incomplete, plagiarised and spam.

The whole thing can be summarised in just a few words; If something goes a funny colour, go see a doctor.
>The whole thing can be summarised in just a few words; If something goes a funny colour, go see a doctor.

Yeah. Or if testicular torsion occurs.

Remember that thread a while back?
Remember it? It still makes me wince...
This thread seems to appear at around three Am for me, just pops in to the forums... You gotta wonder how well this thread works when someone organises our thoughts... If thoughts can be organised, I mean a though isn't exactly tangible is it? then again neith is computer data and it gets organised all the time, if I could hold a ball of electrons or the like it'd make more sense... Also would ball of electrons look wierd, would it glow or just kinda be there, also it would be really light making it harder to hold since it'd be lighter than any substance in existence, but it'd also be pretty dangerous, for the grounded people.

My post is similar to killerjackalope's. I haven't slept for....... . still counting..... ..... ummm..... crap, i ran out of fingers to count on .............. dangit, ran out of toes..... 23 hours! Woooohoooo. Yeah, I'm pretty dang tired. And I have a head ache. Oh, and some advice to everyone out there. DONT SOLDER WHEN YOU'RE TIRED! YOU BURN YOURSELF A LOT! WHY AM I SHOUTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!????????????????!!!!!!!!!????????!?!?!?!?!?!?!
I see I think I'm allowed to post, mainly because I havn't had a chance to sleep since yesterday, I got up at 12pm or so yeaterday and havn't got to sleep yet. now 24hrs and 37minutes in, It's all getting a bit dragged out, you find that experimenting with jet engines is too dangerous and sitting still is nigh on impossible, you play the xbox and start forgetting buttons...
