What if you stopped sleeping? The guys at AsapSCIENCE tested the impact of sleep deprivation on their attractiveness and cognitive ability by not sleeping for 36 hours.

Cisco rarely barks, but he does let loose in his dreams. Finally got good audio, if not video, of Cisco sleep-barking. Often the best bouts happen in the dead of night, so I’ve been trying to remember to set the camera on my bedstand. Sure enough, we got a good bout of barking last night.
