  • Here's everything you need to know about.

  • The Russian sleep experiment.

  • According to the story, the Soviet Union wanted to manufacture a chemical that would allow them to stay awake for days on end, giving them an edge over the Nazis.

  • A group of five test subjects volunteered to get exposed to a gas that would force them to stay awake for 30 days.

  • But things soon turned dark after a number of days without sleep.

  • The subjects went insane and eventually self mutilated, until they became horrifying creatures that the scientists needed to euthanize.

  • Thankfully this tale has no actual basis in reality, it's an online creepypasta made to frighten and entertain with no real history behind it.

  • According to the pentagon, a soldier who's been awake for over 48 hours would be too delirious to be effective in combat anyway, meaning the Russian sleep experiment could never work.

  • Sorry, creepy experiment fans.
