Russian researchers in the late s kept five people awake for fifteen days using an experimental gas based stimulant. They were kept in a sealed environment to carefully monitor their oxygen intake so the gas didn't kill them, since it was toxic in high concentrations. This was before closed circuit cameras so they had only microphones and five inch thick glass porthole sized windows into the chamber to monitor them. The chamber was stocked with books, cots to sleep on but no bedding, running water and toilet, and enough dried food to last all five for over a month. Everything was fine for the first five days; the subjects hardly complained having been promised falsely that they would be freed if they submitted to the test and did not sleep for 30 days. Their conversations and activities were monitored and it was noted that they continued to talk about increasingly traumatic incidents in their past, and the general tone of their conversations took on a darker aspect after the four day mark. After five days they started to complain about the circumstances and events that lead them to where they were and started to demonstrate severe paranoia.

The Russian Sleep Experiment is an urban legend based on a creepypasta , which tells the tale of five test subjects being exposed to an experimental sleep -inhibiting stimulant in a Soviet-era scientific experiment. The story recounts an experiment set in a late—s Soviet test facility. In a military-sanctioned scientific experiment, five political prisoners were kept in a sealed gas chamber , with a continually administered airborne stimulant for keeping the subjects awake for 30 consecutive days. The prisoners were falsely promised that they will be set free from prison if they complete the experiment. The subjects behaved as usual during the initial days, talking to each other and whispering to the researchers through the one-way glass, though it is noted their discussions gradually became darker in the subject matter. After nine days, one subject begins screaming uncontrollably for hours while the others having no reaction to his outburst. The man screamed for so long that he tore his vocal cords. He was paralyzed. When the second one started screaming, the others prevented the researchers from looking inside by pasting torn book pages and their own feces on the porthole windows. A few days passed without the researchers being able to look inside, during which the chamber was completely silent.
I hope to be able to love nurses as I once did for many years. I think in most situations its either you join or she leaves- either you, or the church. I say, Follow your heart. Maybe he found a nice Mormon girl after all. Your attempts at being funny or lightening the mood may backfire, and your date may be put off. Even though it sounds like she is very Mormon, I feel that this will help her. This broke my heart. So, I'm in a relationship with a 3rd year med student and we are trying to find a date to get married. I don't think we are going to end up being friends but I'll get over that.
