A few days ago, Ted-Ed uploaded a video on what would happen if you didn’t sleep. Basically, a high school student stayed awake for eleven days to conduct an experiment. He wanted to see how he would cope without sleep. He began to experience extreme side effects in just the first few days. According to the video, his eyes stopped focusing, he lost his ability to identify objects by touch, and he was moody and uncoordinated. You can only imagine what life was like for him by the end of this experiment.
