Posted:ok.. i've been ill today and as a result have spent the last 12 HOURS online, most of it spent in these oh so great forums of social discussion!!
i doubt this is the longest time anyone's spent on HOP (or at least i hope it isn't) and was just wondering if anyone else has acheived such dizzy heights of boredom/ forum based entertainment.....

I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

Posted:I did it for 14 one summer day when I was cranking on a project and I had to keep waiting for the supercomputer to crunch figures for me. Then I'd do 5 minutes of work and then wait another hour. So if you don't count the 5 minute disruptions...14.

After my accident when I was fresh out of the hospital and limited to doing nothing...I spent three days straight on HoP, with medicated catnaps in between.

I didn't sleep last night so...



Don't you think it should be "continuously"... if it's with sleep in between it doesn't count. tongue sleep once, that's two stints.
