Lisa Gorska: Well I go to bed at 8 and wake up at 17 and you're basically telling me I won't survive

sarah smith: This is literally why I failed high school

Chigs1764: "Blame" your genes? No no that's backwards. You should thank your genes for being nightowls. Blame living in a society of morning people or not working a night shift

Geneon Z: if i go to sleep even 30 minutes before 12 I wake up at 12, if I go to sleep between 1:00 and 1:30. I have to go to sleep at 2 to wake up at 6.

-NineTailed-: Somewhere between 6-8 AM is my sleepy time

Gerald Brown: fake. I just opened up my hamster and I found 0 clocks.

Corporate Coffee Futures: I have always been a night owl since I was a kid. It kicked in around 5th grade. I would be up fantazising or something and I don't fall asleep until 3 or 4 in the morning and I had to go to school. Sleep deprivravation is a horrible feeling. I am a night owl. I have tried changing my routine to get up in the morning but then my body reverts back to the night owl time. I should also mention that I am diagnosed with autism (formerly Apserger's) and bi-polar disorder. I'm thinking about talking to my doctor about this.

Valen Uranus: so this biological clock is absolute or relative to environment?
so would the timing change when you are in different time zone?
or would someone has a non-24-hour-cycle?

Miguel: I p'm so sleepy i honest to god thought, i have clocks in my body?!!?!!????

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.

misfitforever20: I got to bed at 4 or 5 am and wake up at 2 or 3 pm on free days

TomoyoYumemi: Night owls unite!
