Everyone is so busy these days. Work, family and social life (if you have one) keep you on the go almost every hour of the day! But how long can you go without sleeping before it gets serious?A man recently went on a no-sleep bender because of his passion for soccer! According to the Huffington Post:

Going 11 days without sleep likely cost a Chinese man his life earlier this week, as he attempted to watch every game in the European Championship, TIME reported.

When you go without sleep for a few days, you get delerious. I’ve gone probably a day or two at the most. Mostly because, I love to sleep. But for some of you reading this, I bet you have gone days, and it can be dangerous…
