Sleep is Overrated

Ever since being a teenager I've suffered insomnia, during my time in the Army we could get as little as ten hours sleep over 3-4 days, I've learnt (for the most part) to do without out it, and even now sleep often seems a necessary intrusion into all the things I'd like to do. But I'm glad to say that Julius Caesar agreed. Plutarch says that Caesar, "considered rest no more than an investment for future action".

I could have guessed this about you. I wish the same was true of me, but I get very edgy and even less intelligent.
