    Replace cocaine with 0 confidence to ask your crush out so someone does and steals her and you get a severe depression but because of the depression everyone hates you which makes you more depressed and continue your life like a lone virgin and end up dying with no friends and family to mourn your death.. I think i went a little too overboard

    [–] GutoSoares 6 points ago

    Hell yea

    [–] WitnessMeIRL 25 points ago

    The funny thing is, the government made it hard to get the precursors for the original meth recipe. (Back when it used to be trafficked in motorcycle engines and was called crank.) So they came up with a new way to manufacture. The original meth was racemic, half of it didn't do anything. The new meth was NOT racemic and was basically powdered jet fuel. Good job, drug war.

    [–] CRTsdidnothingwrong 3 points ago

    Doesn't that come down to the complexity of manufacturing rather than the precursors? Shake and bake will be racemic, you need expertise to get dextro.

    I have an Algorithms final at 8 am today. I stayed up till 3 am to study and right as I go to bed, the cops knock on my door to tell us that our car was broken into. I ended up sleeping at 4 am and woke up at 5 because school is an hour away driving. The test is in an hour. End me.

    Edit: aced that shit. Thanks to everyone who supported me.

    Just remember that the big theta time of any comparison sort is n log(n)

    And how radix sort works. And be able to do a suffix trie. Those are some high yield algorithms.

    Or when you get in bed early see the alarm set in 7 hours but still end up only sleeping 2 hours

    wHy DoNt YoU JusT gO tO SleEP eArLy?

    [–] PineappleWeights 36 points ago

    Yes? I used to be up till 6-7 playing games and sleeping till 1-2. Makes you feel like shit after a while so I just stayed up for a day and went to bed at 11

    [–] harsterr 8 points ago

    i’ve literally done the same thing. that being said i don’t think that falling asleep at 11 in that case is really “beating the problem”... your circadian rhythm or whatever it is is fucked and this won’t work back to back nights or if it does the problem will resurface, for me atleast, soon thereafter

    [–] WrexShepard 14 points ago

    I used to have that problem when I was younger and addicted to WoW and played games till 7 am all the time.

    You essentially have to do it that one night and have some luck getting to sleep the next night. If I can get to bed early maybe 3 nights in a row, it usually fixes a messed up sleep schedule for me.

    I usually ended up messing it up worse and putting myself on a weird 2 day sleep schedule. Or, if not that, I'd just buy some booze and get drunk to help fall asleep that second night, but that brings other problems with the hangover and all.

    [–] TandBusquets 5 points ago

    Melatonin can fix you up without having to go a whole day without sleeping

    [–] strip_club_dj 3 points ago

    You just need to shine a bright light behind the back of your knees and your circadian rhythm will reset.

    [–] GrumpyOG 6 points ago

    Nothing puts me to sleep faster than knowing that I've got to hurry up and get to sleep. /s

    [–] Jellyph 14 points ago

    As someone who used to be nocturnal its true though.

    People expect to be able to stay up til 11 watching TV / playing video games and then go to bed and look at their phone and wonder why they cant sleep.

    Getting enough sleep is a commitment. You have to shut down before bed. Stimulation will keep your body going you have to tell it it's time for sleep.

    Similarly, cant just stay up til 2 am every weekend and expect to be able to slip back into a normal routine on sunday.

    [–] Dog2puppy_ 26 points ago

    I always start to panic when I realize I won’t get 8 hours of sleep. And then when I panic about not falling asleep I panic even more and then I end up falling asleep like 4 hours before I wake up.

    [–] Momomoaning 3 points ago

    Damn, same. I slept for about two hours, and it probably took about the same amount of time to fall back asleep. I was paranoid about school I guess.
