I was wondering if anyone had any information on a new drug I have heard is being developed for narcoleptics. I'm mostly curious because it has interesting effects on non-narcoleptics, in particular 72 hours without the need for sleep, and then 8 hours of sleep to fully recharge. Just curious, and I have mixed feelings on the idea.

On the one hand, I could do so much more if I had 72 consecutive hours in which to do it. On the other hand, one of the reasons I love sleeping is because I get bored with being awake sometimes. That doesn't sound very productive, but sometimes you run out of things to do...
