I don't know about the rest of you ... but my ability to consume
mass quantities of alcohol and go for extended periods without sleep
went away around the onset of age 30.   Now that I am a new/first
time father (at age 45), maybe I can get in shape again for those 
long sleepless contest periods.  ;-)
