  1. Wait wait wait …….
    That drop should be scripted,
    As When he was asked to hold the string just for 60 seconds and if he really wanted to hold it his brain should have turned on the reward system mechanism.
    That is he must be thinking "come on just hold it for sixty seconds and then I can leave it and relax"
    Here relax acts as reward which promotes attention to do it and brain counts this act as a survival necessary action
    Though this effect is not very long lasting but long enough for the given task.
    It lasts for about 25 to 30 mins which is way more than 60 seconds
    Don't you feel the same???

  2. You can never have a no sleep brain games test! You cannot test a person at all! The fact that you will never know when he/she is thinking alot at any point of time which losses alot of brain energy to continue the test!

  3. when I've not slept for a long time I often doze of randomly, once I hadn't slept for about a day and a bit and I was standing in a bus and my head dropped for about 10 seconds and then I quickly jerked back awake

  4. WTF Nat Geo?! People get sleepy after big meals because blood goes to their gut? Are you serious? It took literally 5 seconds of research to disprove this myth. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15488646 and https://www.newscientist.com/article/dn9272-why-we-need-a-siesta-after-dinner
    You are a trusted educational channel owned by a HUGE television network and available on tens of millions of televisions nation-wide. Fact-check your shit! Random people on the internet should not be able to disprove your stated fact in less time than it took for the narrator to announce said fact. I only care this much because you're promoting an incredibly naive and boring explanation for the actual, incredible protein and neuronal interactions that result in the sensation.

  5. i remember reading a post on tumblr where the OP said that back in junior high school, they tried not to sleep for as long as possible and apparently, they started experiencing hallucinations. they said that they saw their hand warping through their desk but the OP's friend said that they had actually been staring at the same place for over half an hour.

  6. I've done this before where I would just drop things all of a sudden or not realize I was unconsciously letting go of something even if I was awake…oh school year
