Sleep is not an option soldier!

    "Tests performed on monkeys that were subjected to 30-36 hours of sleep deprivation revealed an average test performance accuracy drop to 63 percent, but that performance was restored to 84 percent after administering CX717" &mdashSlashdot

    I have been known to do some pretty silly things when I'm tired. One of the most ridiculous and apparently inefficient things I do when I'm exhausted is to go to sleep. It might be hard to imagine the sheer numbers of drool hours I have racked up, but let's just say on the last Dreamland gubernatorial race I was actually a write-in. That all ends now. I'm trading in my pillow time for some good old-fashioned American bastardized science. A pill that will reverse the effects of sleep deprivation.

    Thank you CX717. Not only do you sound like some bleak, post-apocalyptic call sign but you also have the added benefit of making sure I never have to pass out from my Chinese Food induced comas ever again. I can keep eating, long into the next morning and not have to worry about carelessly flushing my keys down the toilet or accidentally calling my parents' house instead of ordering more delicious cheese fried wontons.

    Purportedly this pill can possibly replace such stimulants as caffeine. And we all know by the time I'm at hour 32, the only thing my coffee is stimulating is my bladder. Yes, it's a brave new world on old CX717. If all else fails in my life, at least I know there is a job keeping monkeys awake and stimulated for 36 hours straight waiting for me. Science!
