Radu Suciu: umm my sister can sleep up to 14 hrs straight and i sleep about 6 hrs

MzFoRi3: I fell asleep to this, after staying awake the entire night.

COS: Ah, I love how I'm watching this at 3:56am contemplating life.

Obito Uchiha: Okay, so I have questions... if I'm a late sleeper (I usually sleep at 3AM) living in this country, would I be an early sleeper if I live in a place more fit for my own body clock?

Is my body clock affected when the sun rises and sets? Like, it adapts to your standard ritual so it's no use even if I move to a different country?

pizza pusi: watches this at 4:06 in the morning

Ka Te: im still awake

HH3222: I approve this video (at 05:00 AM)

Triston Ross: its 1:00 am right now

Neurotic Knight: I was a late sleeper, from India, I went to the UK for two years and I was still a late sleeper, however due to 4:30-time zone difference, when I came back to India again, I became an early to bed, early to rise morning lark.

misfitforever17: I got to bed at 4 or 5 am and wake up at 2 or 3 pm on free days

TomoyoYumemi: Night owls unite!

cassi farcas: If you're a late sleeper, recuperate the lost sleep time by having a nap in the evening; and make a habit out of that. Your body will be grateful :)

Game Bear Kingdom: I go to bed 3am and wake up 3 pm. It that bad?

Jojo L: My husband has always been a late sleeper, he doesn't sleep till 1am since he was a baby.....

Breakfast221: It's quite fitting that I'm watching this video at 2:15 AM.

J Ger: As a 21 year old, I cant remember the last time I slept past 8:00 am. Even if i drank like a lunatic i still managed to yank my ass off my bed.

hamza Azher Ali: I wonder if immigrants face not being able to wake with the sun more than others. Even though I was born in KSA when I go on vacation to my parents' places, I never have to use an alarm.

DimensiiioN: Great video!

Lauroka W: I have an extremely late chronotype and I try to control it by not eating after 9 pm, so that when I start getting hungry I have to go to sleep, instead of eating and staying awake until 6am

bigiri: So, what about people who feel the best when they go to bed late a night ? (2-3 am)
I feel like every cell in my body is screaming in agony, when I have to turn in early, and wake up at the crack of dawn.
