The general estimate is 1/3rd of your life (so you lived to ninety, you'll have spent thirty years sleeping!). But that can be way off. Sleeping patterns change, some people sleep only four or five hours a day...others sleep for nine :P You get the picture. It's fun to count though.

Here's how the poll works: Vote for how many hours of sleep on average you get each day/night. Then figure out (roughly) how many years you'll have slept away by the time you're sixty if you keep sleeping X amount each day.

On average, I'd say I sleep seven or eight hours a day, so that's a third of the day...

By the time I'm sixty, I'll have slept for twenty years :D

7-8 usually. I can't function even with that much sometimes.

Often 5-6, considering I'm busy during the day & am usually active at night.

9-10 whenever I can. Hey, that rhymed!

that's almost half of the day, so when I'm 60, I'll have slept for about 28 years. SWEET!

Depends. If my paranoia is triggered by a scary character or image, my brain's convinced it's either going to be hiding in dark places or going to come in my room and get me. My newest one is zombies; I spent most of the night laying awake and watching the door. But if I'm not paranoid, I think I get 5-8. If I am, maybe about 50 minutes.

I get up at 6 but generally get to bed anywhere from 2 to 4 o'clock.

So I guess that averages out to 3 hours a night.

By the time I'm 60 I'll have slept about 7 or 8 years if I keep this up.

I usually get about seven hours on weekdays, and nine or ten on weekends if I'm not working. But sometimes I stay up until the wee hours of the morning on weekdays for no reason at all other than I can't be bothered sleeping, so I dunno. I probably sleep for just a bit less than a third of the day on average.

Five to eight hours most of the time, especially on the weekends! I sleep for less than five hours when I have some homework to get done (that I couldn't finish the day before) before I go to college, but that happens only on rare occasion. xD
The amount of years I'll have slept by the time I turn sixty would be somewhere between fifteen to twenty years. xD

I sleep about five to six hours ago. All hail sleep deprivation and dark circles... and Clinique!

I have to go to school in the daytime, and I'm pretty active during the nighttime, so usually around 5-6 hours.

Most likley 5-6 hours a night, because I usually go to bed around 3AM and wake up at 8-9.
