Ukrainian man hasn’t slept in 20 years

I tend to be a bit of a night owl but I can’t see how this is humanly possible.

I used to read boring scientific periodicals in the hope they would send me to sleep. But as soon as I felt my eyes getting droopy and put the magazine down, I would find myself wide awake again. I thought it would just be a phase but its gone on for over 20 years now and I’ve simply had to get used to it.

If you figure he’s had 8 hours more a day than the rest of us mortals than over 20 years that works out to 2,433 days or six and a half years! One wonders why he isn’t a whole heck of a lot more productive than the rest of us, he should have a few Nobel prizes under his belt by now – what gives?

Thanks to Kottke for the pointer.
