I'm learning how to do polyphasic sleep the abrupt way. An all-nighter project at work, and to avoid going crazy, I took a 20 minutes nap at about 2:30am and just got up from another.

I don't think it's biologically possible for me to do it continuously, like the polyphasic sleep people do...

Yeah, so far I've had it hybridized with this.

I was unaware of the polyphasic sleep thing, but reading into it I don't really buy the claims of the manufacturers, so to speak. It does seem like something that would fall out of favor with employers and family, if one had either.

In the US, yes. But some cultures expect everyone to head home for a large mid-day meal (unambiguously better than a large evening meal) and a nap, then work later in the night.

It appeals to me. I'd love to sleep, say, 2-6:30, and again for 90 minutes in the afternoon. But, as you say, kids and work don't support trying it.
