No. Just no. This will not lead to a good outcome.

" As the title of his stream says it seems like he is only going to play World Of Warcraft: Mist of Pandaria throughout the duration ."

I've done 30 hours and felt like I was going to die even with plenty of breaks built in. I can't imagine tacking an extra hundred hours on to that.

That's crazy. I've seen a guy stream for 80+ hours without sleep a couple times and he was fine, but 135...I'm sure he's going to be hallucinating.

The real danger is staying perfectly still for that long... if he stands up and moves around a bit he MIGHT be ok... but the people who usually wind up dead after this usually have some kind of blood clot or something form in their legs and then it travels to the heart and bam.. dead.

I find it hard to believe that the Guinness Book of World Records would be accepting further record attempts if it's got a serious risk of death involved.

looks like he's unbanned...

When will people stop doing this? I'm expecting to see an article saying he died in just a few days from now.

I watched him on and off do a stream where he was aiming to hit 90 in World of Warcraft from level 1. He almost made it, he was like 88 or 90 and he was at the point where he was passing out on stream with some guy on comms waking him up. He was up and about, showering in between, eating and drinking but I guess the body wants the body needs and he threw the towel in.

So it's not the first time he's done a long ass stream before.

I'm pretty sleep dependent on meds. I can stay away for however long I want just by not taking my meds. I could easily break the record if I wanted to. However, staying awake for 5 or more days makes me suicidal, so I think I'll pass.
