  • Defcon gave me insomnia! did you come back with any quirks?

    I now have the magic ability to sleep in three hour installments. Its quite annoying, actually, cuz i'm starting to always feel like I am awake.

    Anyone else come home with some new ability?

            I can't get to sleep until 4am, and then to help me get to sleep I have to play really loud music. Sirens help too.

              I'm going through the usual Defcon withdrawl.

              - Body is having trouble adjusting to the lack of heroic doses of caffine
              - Ears are ringing
              - Ears not used to the quiet
              - Brain going through atrophy from lack of stimulus
              - Body won't sleep more than a few hours
              - Wierd flashbacks involving changing color lights, pirate flags, and a mythical half rabbit, half deer creature
              - The desire to take apart everything (not a new thing, but more intense)
              - Desire to learn and thirst for knowledge is off the charts
              - Real food seems strange
              - I was up till 2:30 am last night, pinning up training locks for Grey Frequency to learn to pick on and this did'nt seem strange
              Never drink anything larger than your head!

                I wouldn't call it a quirk or ability, but a couple of nights after arriving home, I was fiddling with a pile of electronics on the coffee table. The converstion with my wife then went like this:

                Her: What's that?
                Me: A robot.
                Her: You brought a robot home from DefCon?
                Me: Yup!
                Her: <shakes head; rolls eyes>

                  I go to bed at around 5AM and wake up sometime in the afternoon, and the other people around me find this weird.

                  I find that I no longer have the ability to communicate with the people around me - it's like a total immersion course in a foreign language/culture right now.

                  My body seems to be going through pizza-withdrawal.

                  (and Thorn - figures I'd join Defcon after moving to where nobody else seems to exist - I'm from the good land of Vermont)

                    -I can stay up much later and sleep much later in the day.
                    -I can drink much more.
                    -I cannot fall asleep before 1am.

                    I'm from MN, so partying until 4am in Vegas is like partying until 6am here... last weekend I ended up partying until 5am with some old friends and I wasn't tired, despite drinking much more than my usual limit. This is alright, besides trying to get up on Monday morning for work at 8am.

                      - I'm able to function on about 4-5 hours of sleep comfortably
                      - I find myself running tcpdump every time I access an open wifi connection
                      - Driving must be accompanied by D & B at earth rumbling volumes
                      - Each time I go through a door, I find myself carefully examining the locks
                      - I'm trying to come up with an effective way of placing an wifi detector in my car complete with LED's. Granted, the last time I drove for wifi was months ago...LEDs just seem cooler now
                      - My anti-social scowl that I developed during Bar review and perfected at Defcon is extremely effective in discouraging people to engage in single serving conversations with me

                          I find myself antsy when theres no loud repetitive music near me.

                            You could have added: "I got it because it listens to my commands." I bet I could have seen the fireworks from here. :>

                              I would have replied:

                              "Really? No accounting for intelligence then, is there?"

                              or:

                              "Wow, wonder how long it will take you to break this one too."
                              :p
