This does not look good for the homestar runner.

Time:4:41 AM Wednesday(28-hour) time, 12:41 Wednesday(24-hour) time

I've spotted a very big flaw with the what we're doing: Humans are only used to a certain # of hours they sleep at night. For me, it's around 8-10 hours. The amount of time in a normal day from, say 11:00 PM-9:00 AM, would be 10 hours. However, the amount of time in a 28-hour day from 11:00 PM-9:00 AM would be 12 hours. What I'm basically saying is "imagine yourself waking up at 4:00AM but you can't sleep anymore) Way past my normal sleep schedule. So there are two solutions, both harsh:

Everybody keeps their sleep schedule, but must adapt to the new, harsh, schedule of waking up around 4 AM. This is good because we get more out of a day, but it's bad because we'll be going on a longer day with less sleep in our systems.

The other alternative would be to sleep for 12-14 hours a day. This is good because you are getting the amount of sleep you need (considering the day itself is longer, so you need more energy to face the day), but it's bad because you're wasting a lot more time on stuff you should be doing.


Although one major advantage has struck in: I can wake up at noon and get away with it. In fact, I woke up early today! Suckas!!
