Quick to die?

A little bit of trivia today: Which will kill a person faster, lack of sleep or lack of food (not water)?

Bonus points to anyone who knows how long each takes.


  1. food - 30 days
    sleep - 10 days

  2. didn't some obsessive gamer dude in korea die from some sort of heart problem due to lack of sleep? Was only a year or two ago.

  3. It takes 10 days to die from lack of sleep (according to the web, and we know that can never be wrong!), and two or three weeks to die from lack of food (although I'll certainly accept one month, because I'm sure it varies from person to person).

    I remember that story. I believe he had some heart condition plus energy drink overdose, though? I don't remember.

  4. one can die faster with lack of sleep.

    like when you're going out dizzy, obviously deprived of sleep, a car may bump on you or you'll shoot yourself into a manhole...

  5. You've been thinking about this too much, sche... Lie down and take a nap! ;-)
