He totally did go without sleep for 25 days. Because studies. An interview with Jordan Peterson by Mikhaela Peterson:
JP: I couldn’t stand up without fainting. I couldn’t sleep. I don’t think I slept at all for for something on the in the order of three weeks.
MP: Yeah, people like you went on Joe Rogan and talked about this Sulfite reaction you had and how you didn’t sleep and people commented that, oh, it’s not possible to stay awake for that long. But if you actually look into sodium metabolic sulfide allergies, The symptoms that we experienced aren’t unheard of, there are papers.
JP: It’s also impossible to stay awake voluntarily that long. That’s not the same as not being able to sleep. Those are very, very different things, whatever. It’s possible that when I was laying there thinking I wasn’t sleeping, that now and then I drifted off and would wake up and not notice. I mean, I can’t eliminate that as a possibility. But I can certainly tell you that I slept little enough so that it was exceedingly unpleasant. It’s a very long time to stay awake.
Liars always resort to redefinitions as soon as they are caught and called out. And Jordan Peterson appears to be a seriously pathological liar. To this day, he still can’t admit that he was simply talking nonsense on Joe Rogan.
He just can’t do it.
And it definitely, definitely, wasn’t meth.
