Sounds like it was just a warning. If it happens again, perhaps something more severe.

You could take a vow of silence like the character Dwayne in the movie Little Miss Sunshine. :p
2012-01-31 16:28:57 on What is the best way to stay awake for 48-96 hours?
I agree with the others. You’re not going to be productive after 50 hours. After a certain point, it becomes difficult to tell if you are awake or dreaming. You will lose the ability to focus your mind. An hour will pass where you’re just playing with a pipe cleaner without realizing that you’re not being productive. At one point, you’ll see money on the ground. You’ll crawl around trying to pick it up. Eventually, you’ll think that you’re laying down to take a short nap in the grass. You’ll wake up eight hours later on top of a wooden table.

Nope. They’re still out there.

What exactly have you tried so far? What injuries have you had and what caused them?
2012-01-30 23:33:35 on I’ll probably be walking 11 km tonight; any tips?
Bring some snacks… anything with some calories. Eat something before you leave and drink plenty of water before you leave. Also, I’d recommend bringing water along, but I suppose if you have a thermos you can always dump out the hot stuff and fill it with snow, but it may take a while to melt. Staying hydrated should be a priority.
Wear leggings. Do you have anything besides jeans/pajamas? The wind will cut right through the pajamas and both of them will retain moisture if you start to sweat and that will get you cold later. So… anything non-cotton?
Also, it is better to progress at a steady pace than to go hard the first two hours and bonk.

In conclusion, these are the greatest products of all time (so far).
1. mutt dog
2. cast iron skillet
3. patagonia active classic underpants
4. 89 square foot house (ideally located within walking distance to a grocery store, a park and a library)

Here’s what one reviewer had to say about Patagonia Active Classic Boxers:
“One of the best things you’ll ever own” 08/16/11
I bought my first pair of these 7 years ago and now they are the only boxers I wear. They are super comfortable, wick away moisture, and refuse to give you a wedgie even when doing gymnastic climbing moves. They also dry very quickly. I’ve found that if you hand wash them and then hang dry them overnight they’re usually dry by breakfast (great for traveling). Also, the durability can’t be beat. I still have and wear that pair from 7 years ago, and they’re still going strong.

It depends on the material. Cotton dries slow, it’s not all that durable and it requires frequent washing.
Patagonia active classic boxers dry fast, they’re extremely comfortable and you can wear them in all situations. And they last forever.
This 89 foot square house meets my requirement for simplicity. It would be very inexpensive to heat and easy to maintain.

Houses are too much maintenance. They don’t meet my requirement for simplicity. Snow shovels are often poorly constructed and difficult to use without causing back injury.
Cast iron skillets, on the other hand, require virtually no maintenance. They’re durable, simple to use and they work great.

Any particular breed?

Just about any exercise can help to boost your stamina if you focus on less weight / higher repetitions and minimal recovery time between sets. Switch off between some type of cardio (running, biking, swimming, basketball, etc.) one day and then do weight training the other day. If you’re completely out of shape and unable to run more than 400 meters, you’ll need to progress slowly. Just start with body-weight exercises - as many as you can do while maintaining perfect form. Something like this:
Week 1 (Mon, Wed, Fri): walk 10 minutes, jog 5, walk 10, jog 5, walk 10, stretch
Week 1 (Tue, Thu, Sat): 3 circuits of pushups, reverse pushups/pull-ups, body-weight squats/lunges, plank
Week 3 (Mon, Wed, Fri): walk 5, jog 10, walk 5, jog 10, walk 5, stretch
Week 2 (Tue, Thu, Sat): same, just increase the number / decrease recovery between sets
Week 3 (Mon, Wed, Fri): jog 10, walk 5, jog 10, walk 5, jog 10, stretch
Week 3: (Tue, Thu, Sat): same, just increase the number / decrease recovery between sets
You get the basic idea. Progress slowly and use proper form. Give yourself plenty of time to stretch afterward.
