    I do not know whether any of you are keeping track of the 24 marathon taking place in LA. Started out with 100 contestants who are watching back to back seasons of 24 without sleep. 72 Hours in there are 3 contestants in! That is an amazing feat! Discuss.

    They're morons. Plainly and simply. I don't know any other way to put it. Going 72 hours or more consecutively without sleep is unhealthy. I have heard of people that have died before because of stuff like this. 24 hours I can see for fun, sure. 48 hours is really stretching it. Anything more is insansity.

    Yeah it's kind of nuts, don't know what the prize is but unless it's something huge like a million bucks, not worth it.

    Hmm. So there was a cash prize involved then. Well, good for them - I just hope they didn't compromise their health.

    I know I'm late to the party on this one, but a friend of mine was actually in the marathon. She made it to the second day. You can actually read her behind-the-scenes account, as well as meeting some 24 celebs, here!
