This would change the world

phyrra pointed me to this article a while back. Turning off the body's need to sleep, or at least cutting it in half, would have an immeasurable impact on human society. Assuming no side effects, I can't imagine how some feel that this would be a bad thing.

I currently get about 6 hrs of sleep/day during the week, and am tired pretty much always. If I could be refreshed and invigorated with just 4 hrs of sleep then it would change my life. If this works then these people are going to become fabulously wealthy, though I imagine there will probably be some psychotic episodes among the first test groups as they find the optimal dosage. ;-)
