Midterm Special: Anatomy of an All-Nighter


First spotted by Wesleying yesterday, this University of Texas guide is worth bookmarking. It outlines the body's response to staying up all night, with specific diet recommendations (hot chocolate with milk is "a double whammy" of caffeine plus protein; jumping jacks and "boogying" also ward off exhaustion). One warning: the outline is written on the assumption that a student's usual bedtime is before midnight. Massive adjustments may be necessary for regular night owls.
