Neil Epstein of London, England has a lot of spare time on his hands. Neil says that for the last 50 years, he has only slept about 20 minutes at a time and can sometimes stay up for 48 hours straight. But the 54-year-old father of four does not see his condition as a burden, he sees it as a blessing. Neil figures he has been conscious for two extra years every decade of his life. In this extra time, he has learned French, written poetry and short stories and even learned to play the piano.
