four hours sleep? Heck, to the no. I'd be one raging ***** ( more than normal, that is) if all I got was four hours sleep! I have to get at least 8 hours of good sleep everynight or I just have a hard time functioning on a daily basis and since I work in the medical field, I make sure I'm well rested everyday.

I normally sleep in 2 hour intervals. If I sleep 4 hours straight through, I am amazed.
