A term used to describe the act of staying awake
throughout the night (sometimes more than 24 hours
at a time). Usually, one pulls an all nighter so that they can get a project
done, or simply because they're having sex
. There is no valid reason to pull an all nighter other than these provided. The exception
is when you're drunk
, because no one knows why they do anything when they're drunk.
Landscape Architecture Students pull all nighters all the time. It's a condition that turns us all into nocturnal beasts, always fighting the bedtime hour. We feel more productive if we sleep less. That makes us good in bed.
