Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Sleep Deprivation and SHTF

They did a sleep-deprivation exercise with our battalion at Ft. Carson. It was called to a halt when an M60 tank drove off into an arroyo in front of my foxhole. It took 3 M88's to pull it out. The driver and TC were pretty messed up.

After 90 hours, I had some pretty wild hallucinations, too. They didn't give us any drugs than the coffee packets in our MRE's.

Quote:
It is one of those things that lot of people do not see, that when SHTF they will have big problems with and due to sleep deprivation.

Reasons are many, maybe it is going to be too dangerous so you’ll be forced to stay awake for prolonged time, or simply your sleep cycle will be messed up because you’ll be depressed when SHTF, or you will not have enough time for quality sleep…

It is important to understand what you can expect when sleep deprivation gets you…

Some guys in the sandbox would put Tabasco from MRE's in their eyes to stay awake.

Default Your mind will go before your body.

Your body within reason can get somewhat used to little or no sleep. Ft. Polk Louisiana A.I.T..1968.
Some night training setting up a perimeter were gonna get attacked shoot blanks have fun playing Army etc. etc. Morning ah time to hit the sack cool.
Sarge comes over to me. "Get on the truck yah got K.P." What? I been up all damn night you frigging idiot I am tired mom would let me sleep you frigging jerkoff don't you frigging stupid....." Of course I did not say that to his big ass. Yes Sargent.
But I got my second wind and learned you can go without sleep. To long? nah as the article says the body and mind fall apart.

Pills readily available while I was in Vietnam known as CIBAs. I used them and did not become addicted.

Grabbing a quick nap when possible, even if only 10-15 minutes, definately helps a person to keep going when in a sleep deprivation situation. Although I really feel that it is tougher dealing with sleep deprivation now, compaired to when I was in my early 40’s, I often see that younger people in their late 20’s or early 30’s that I occationally work with just don’t seem to have the same tolerance. Which I think has to do with mindset and training. Or lack of it on their part.

One thing is for sure, the brain functions substantially better if it gets a few hours of sleep per day.
